Campus Life

Study. Live. Grow.

Experience life in a bustling European city as a Saint Louis University student.

Outside of class, pursue your passions through extracurricular activities both on and off campus. As a student at SLU-Madrid, you can compete in league soccer, debate current events or bring Shakespeare to life on stage.

You can play basketball, volleyball, tennis and over 20 other sports — a great way to meet Spanish people and get to know Madrid. What’s more, you can hike, ski or even kayak in the nearby Guadarrama Mountains. At the same time, you can also learn how to play the Spanish guitar or dance flamenco.

Students at the Madrid Campus publish poetry, put on art shows and perform in musical concerts. They are actively engaged in clubs and organizations on campus and across the city, including the Student Government Association, the Campus Ambassador Program, the Model U.N., the Human Rights Club and more.
