University of Almeria (Universidad de Almeria)

University Information, Campus and History
(Almeria, Spain)

The Universidad de Almeria is a public university established in 1993. It was created as a response to the need for quality education in the Spanish province of Almeria. It began as a dependant and university college of the University of Granada. The edicts that were passed by the Parliament of Andalusia in 1993 converted it into a university. The University of Almeria was given full autonomy after a four-year transitory period.

Today, the university has 15,000 students and almost 700 professors under its wing. It has an average student-teacher ratio of roughly 25 students to one teacher. The University of Almeria campus is located on the Andalusian coast near the road leading to the Cabo de Gata-Nijar nature park.


Despite being a young university, the University of Almeria has an impressive lay out of classrooms, lecture rooms, and even greenhouses for practical work. Students get their meals from the university's three cafés, a restaurant, and a number of food stalls. The sports facilities include basketball courts, volleyball courts, football pitches, and tennis courts. For entertainment, students can catch a movie at the Maestro Padilla projection hall, which is run by the University Cinema Club.

Famous Students
