In the heart of the city, and only 3 minutes
from the old quarter, we find the Residencia Universitaria "San
An emblematic building from the beginning of the 20th century, and
restored and modernized in 1997. This Residencia is managed by Anta Gestión de Usos Terciarios S.L., a private company although the owner
of the building is the Provincial Government of Burgos.
From the beginnings of our Residencia, we have been acquiring an international
experience as a result of our close collaboration with different foreign
universities. Such experience, year by year, is obviously enriching
all our groups:
of California - Davis (U.S.A.)
University of New York (SUNY) - Purchase College (U.S.A.)
of Michigan (U.S.A.)
of ITESM - San Luis Potosí
of Champagnat - San Luis
of Boston (U.S.A.)
For the internal functioning, every year the
students choose a Residential Council, which is formed bya President
and 8 Representatives , who are responsible for communicating all
the suggestions made by the students to the Head Office.
The different Representatives are: Library, Games, Trips, Computers,
Dining-Room, Gym, Sports and Cultural Activities.
the heart of the city, and only 3 minutes from the old quarter, we
find the Residencia Universitaria "San Agustín",
with such emblematic buildings as the Burgos Cathedral, Arco de Santa
María o Museo de Atapuerca.
It is also located in a commercial location, with banks, bars, supermarkets,
pharmacies, Health Centers, etc...
Burgos is a beautiful city located 220 km to
the north of Madrid along the Camino de Santiago.
This strategic and privileged situation makes
it a city of great commercial activity. The relationship with the
Cantabrian coast - near such cities as Santander, Bilbao and San Sebastián
- places Burgos in a very important crossroads along the commercial
routes in the north of the Peninsula.
Burgos, considered the birthplace of
the Spanish language, has many monuments of great importance, such
as the marvelous gothic Cathedral and, at the same time, many other
important religious buildings such as the Monasterio de las Huelgas
or the Cartuja de Miraflores. The latest archaeological discoveries
in Atapuerca make Burgos a city of worldwide importance.
Despite being in a place of substantial commercial activity, the natural
spaces in the city and its surroundings offer to its 160.000 inhabitants
a high standard of living. Not surprisingly, Burgos is considered
to be the city with the most "green spaces" in Spain.
