As our school is affiliated with the University of Barcelona, students also have access to its library network.

Library hours: 9 am to 8 pm.

Loan service: Students may request a maximum of 10 documents during a period of 20 days.

Students may use the work and study space and computers during the opening hours of the Media Library.

Café and Restaurant

Heart of the square, heart of the school. Ideas for a new team project may blossom over coffee, a mid-morning snack or a round of beers after class.

The best opportunities begin in the wings

In the square you’ll find a café where students, teachers and staff come together. A place of opportunities, a metaphor for the film industry and real-life networking. Make the most of it!

Cafè ESCAC: open from Monday to Friday from 9am to 7pm, at Plaça de la Farinera and Vapor Universitari.

Restaurant: Due to COVID-19, restaurant is temporarily closed.

Student Housing

You can stay at the Giralt i Serrà Residence Hall or the Hipatia Housing Complex, both managed by RESA and very close to the school.

Or you may want to share a rented flat; there are plenty in the area, and Casa Bauman can provide you with information.
