Practical Information

The University Campus (Ciudad Universitaria) is served by the bus lines 28, 33, 37, 42, 45, 107, 160. Some buses end their route before reaching the University Campus. Only those with a special sign "Ciudad Universitaria" behind the windshield serve the School site. You should step down from the bus at the first stop inside campus. All bus routes end at their third stop inside campus. The bus fare must be paid aboard, using a prepaid card (SUBE) which you must buy in advance.

Card operated public phones, for local and international calls, are available in the ground floor of the building. Cards are available in the kiosk next to the building entrance. Long-distance phone and fax services are also available in cabins next to the entrance to the second building (Pabellón 2). The rates for international calls from these cabins ("Locutorios", also common downtown) are cheaper than hotel phone rates.
