Student residence in Barcelona

The new student residence in Sants, in the centre of Barcelona

The new Garbí Student Residence is found in a privileged location, on Plaza de los Países Catalanes, right by Sants Train Station in Barcelona, and next to Sants Bus Station.

From here, you can easily reach the historical part of Barcelona – Plaza Catalunya, Paseo de Gracia, Las Ramblas, etc. – as well as the University Zone, in just 10 minutes. Most of the University of Barcelona’s faculties are found here, as well as our new residence, Marsàs University Residence, which is under construction.

The construction project is progressing on time and very successfully, and as such it will be open in time for the 2019/2020 academic year. From January 2019 the pilot rooms will be ready, so you can come and visit them and get a better idea of what your new student residence in Sants will be like.

The Garbí Residence will be made up of all individual rooms, with two categories:


  • Residencia Garbí
  • ADDRESS: Carrer de Viriat 37-39 08014 Barcelona
  • PHONE: +34 93 145 40 82
