The University of Murcia is a public research university located in the southeastern part of Spain. It was founded in 1915 although its origins date back to the thirteenth century. 

The University of Murcia has 24 schools and seven research institutes, offering modern facilities and experimental science support service, two extensive libraries including a European documentation center, as well as many specialized institutes dealing with different aspects of the scientific and humanistic world.

The university also has a great number of sports facilities including sports halls, football and rugby fields, aerobic and weight rooms, tennis and squash courts, a climbing wall and an indoor pool. Students also have access to computer labs in many buildings and a wide variety of cultural and extracurricular activities.

The university is devoted to providing higher education to the public. Murcia has four campuses:

    A true wedge among the Mediterranean regions, Murcia is the product of a crossing of civilizations throughout its history: Muslim, Castilian and Valencian-Aragones have all left their mark on the city. Situated in southeastern Spain, Murcia has a Mediterranean climate with very little rainfall and enjoys more hours of sunlight per year than most Spanish cities. Its fertile soil, bathed by the Segura River, has provided the nickname for which Murcia is known: the orchard of Europe. Two seas are located in the region, and the Mediterranean Sea and the Mar Menor are tranquil and warm all year.

    International students have many opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities as there are more than 30 student organizations available. The International Relations Organization brings together international and local students during the international welcome week at the beginning of each semester for social activities and travel. Our "buddy program" for international students matches each new international student with a local student during the first weeks of the program. 

    The ISEP Direct Spanish language and culture program includes full orientation, welcome week activities and a weekend trip to cities in southern Spain.
