Living in Madrid 

Madrid has something to offer both day and night. Whether you are in class or just exploring on your own, you'll not run out of sites to see. At NYU Madrid, you'll enjoy a full range of scheduled cultural activities and excursions designed for you to experience Spanish culture. Faculty-led trips may take you to the Madrid Mosque, the Stock Exchange, the Royal Palace,  the Sorolla Museum and much more...

Outside of class time, you may want to visit the beautiful manicured gardens of the Plaza Oriente, then take a walk on the Gran Via, a busy boulevard lined with shops and eateries. If you yearn for some culture, enjoy the works of Salvador Dalí and Joan Miró at the Centro de Arte Reina Sofía.  

NYU Sponsored Excursions  

Each semester, the NYU Madrid staff plans several day trips and weekend excursions outside of Madrid, all of which are included in your tuition. Your understanding of Spain is broadened by journeys to other regions, such as overnight trips to Córdoba, Bilbao, or Salamanca.​ You will ​also have the opportunity to learn more about Spain'​s history and culture on the day trips to Segovia, ​El Escorial, and Toledo​.
