The University




Public University of Navarre’s teaching and researching activity is developed in three campuses, two of them located in Pamplona, and the other one in Tudela.  

Arrosadia campus, by Franciso Javier Sáenz de Oiza, is located in the South of Pamplona. Most of UPNA's activity takes place in it. In Pamplona is also the Health campus, located in the hospital area of town, which makes it easier for health degrees students to carry out internships.

The Tudela campus is located in the capital of Navarre’s Ribera region. Its facilities are in the South area of town.

The campuses

Arrosadia campus



Arrosadia Campus is located in the South area of Pamplona, and takes up a 757,000 m2 area. A wide tree-lined boulevard links the Teaching Block (Aulario), at one end of campus, and the Chancellor's office building, at the other end. Right in the middle of campus is the largest building, the Library, and on both sides of it are the department buildings.  

Architect Francisco Javier Sáenz de Oiza (1918-2000) designed the campus as a system of buildings which foster work, study and relations among the university community members. In its wide green areas, numerous plant species live together with sculptures which are part of UPNA's artistic heritage.

Lime and maple trees line up along Arrosadia Campus, a privileged place where garden areas pair with the buildings designed by Sáenz de Oiza. They are outdoors leisure and meeting areas and offer a broad sample of vegetable species from the five continents. The campus houses 89 different tree species and a dozen of significant bush species, all of them identified in the work “Campus verde: guía de la vegetación de la Universidad Pública de Navarra (Green campus - guide to vegetation of PUblic University of Navarre)".
