A district very frequented by students, given that it is located next to the University City. For that reason it has a considerable demand for housing for students.
It is an area with a large number of green spaces, sports centers, swimming pools and countless enclaves where any student can practice practically any activity.
It also has various fundamental and distinctive elements of the city, such as the Moncloa Lighthouse; the cable car of Madrid; the Victory Arch; etc.
For students who are looking for a cheaper neighborhood, who are going on the road or love gastronomy, the neighborhood of La Latina is a good option.
It is the perfect place to enjoy delicious tapas, have a drink or a few drinks in the many places, restaurants and bars that are located between the two main arteries of the neighborhood: La Cava Alta and La Cava Baja streets.
Within the neighborhood of La Latina, Vitium has one of its luxurious residences for students, in Ronda de Segovia, 13.
The residence has 6 excellent and bright rooms that offer the tranquility that every student needs, and with all the comforts and services that allow you to concentrate on what really matters: study and share your experiences with other colleagues.
Just 200 meters from the residence is the Royal Palace and the Cathedral of Almudena, a perfect location for your stay as a student in Madrid.
Oh, and if you like live music, in La Latina you have several clubs where you can get good doses of decibels live.
Located between Calle de Alcalá and Plaza de España,Madrid, Gran Vía is the city’s main thoroughfare, the nerve center of Madrid, full of fashion shops, restaurants, places … Everything is there. It is the ideal place to go shopping, sightseeing or spend your leisure time.
Some of the most emblematic buildings and with the greatest artistic and architectural value of the city are in this area. The Carrión building, where the old Capitol Cinemas were located; the building of Seguros Estrella, with its monumental portico with sculptures from Greco-Roman mythology; or the mythical Telefónica building.
Its numerous recycled theaters and dedicated some of them to musicals have made him deserve the name of the Madrid Broadway.

A symbol of the city easily recognizable anywhere in our geography , and also in the places of origin of the Erasmus students who choose Madrid as the destination city.
There is the authentic center of Madrid, and of all Spain, given the location of the famous Kilometer Zero, the origin of all radial roads.
But for what is more known the Puerta del Sol is because there are celebrated every year the 12 bells that welcome the new year, on January 1.
Very close to Puerta del Sol, only 100 meters away, Vitium Residences has another one of its floors with luxury rooms for students, on Calle Arenal, 16. Equipped with 13 fantastic rooms, with unbeatable natural lighting, completely isolated from the noise , with a vanguard decoration, and with all the comforts and services that a student could wish for.
