In just a few minutes, the student can leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind and discover the areas around Madrid with the buses and train network that connects the city centre with the surroundings of Madrid. And by High Speed train (AVE) the student can visit the most important cities of Spain in the wink of an eye. From Madrid Barajas Airport, the student can also travel all around Europe.

Living in Madrid

Le Cordon Bleu Madrid is located on the campus of the Francisco de Vitoria University (UFV), 20-25 minutes from the city center.

The School recommends different accommodation options according to the student's needs:

1. Renting an apartment in Madrid Capital (Downtown)

If the student wants to live in the heart of the city and experience the daily life of the capital, renting an apartment in Madrid would be the best option. You will easily find cultural and leisure offers.

In about 20-30 minutes you will reach Le Cordon Bleu Madrid.

The areas of Moncloa, Argüelles, Plaza de España, Ciudad universitaria and Chamberí are a good option to live in a university and young environment. In addition, these areas are close to the Moncloa metro station, where the bus interchange is located and from where buses leave to take you to the School.

If the student prefers to live in an upscale area, Barrio Salamanca and Retiro are the best options.

2. Renting an apartment in the closest areas to the School.

If the student wants to live as close as possible to the School, we recommend the areas of Pozuelo de Alarcón, Majadahonda, Aravaca and Las Rozas. These are the closest districts to Le Cordon Bleu Madrid. The student will save time and live in a more relaxed environment than the center of Madrid, as it is a residential area.

3. Dorms / Residence

The student can also stay in a dormitory or residence hall. This option is recommended for younger students, since they will live in the residence with university students.

In Le Cordon Bleu Madrid, we have prepared an accommodation guide that we will provide to the student in our admission process. In this guide we provide some agencies, websites and contacts that can help students find the right accommodation according to their preferences.

Students should keep in mind that, no matter which option they choose, it is very important to have access to a well-equipped kitchen where they can practice what they have learned in class.
