our campus


We are in the university area of Terrassa, 30 km from Barcelona. With more than 12,000 students, Terrassa is the second university city in Catalonia and as such, it combines leisure and services to cover all the needs of students during their stay in the city.

Terrassa has recently been chosen as a film city of the “Creative Cities Network” of UNESCO.

The ESCAC campus is formed by the group of buildings of La Farinera (Plaça de la Farinera, 9) and the Vapor Universitari (Carrer Colom, 114). See map

We have newly built facilities covering more than 30,000 square metres in the La Farinera and Vapor Universitario buildings, fully set up to teach Film and Audiovisual studies.
