Madrid Life

Life in Madrid, Spain is unlike any other experience for students, especially thanks to Suffolk's great programs and support staff. Learn about your options and explore what your study abroad experience could be like!

From the moment you arrive in Madrid, expect a warm Suffolk Madrid welcome. Life has a different rhythm here and so much for you to discover. Before you know it, you'll feel at home on our campus and in our splendid city.

Explore a Whole New World 

At orientation, you'll get familiar with the neighborhood surrounding our campus, along with the grand palaces and squares of Madrid's historic district. You'll also learn your way around on the city's subway system. Don't worry: Most students master it after just a few rides. Of course, you'll also want to settle into your new housing, get used to using a telefonillo, and try the local cuisine.

As you adjust to life in Madrid, you'll see that Suffolk Madrid's campus life is equally lively. With your classmates here, you can hike, bike, ride horses, take in a bullfight and flamenco show, rollerblade, and so much more. Our Student Council also organizes special events like debates, holiday dances, and fundraisers for local charities.

And when you want to get away from the city, we offer monthly excursions to Spain's vividly diverse regions. On these trips, you'll peer into the country's rich past and learn how the locals live today.
