Ciutadella Campus


The ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF BOARDS OF TRUSTEES OF SPANISH UNIVERSITIES will be held at the auditoriums Jordi Rubió i Balaguer and Mercè Rodoreda of the Ciutadella campus.

Ciutadella Campus Auditorium
The Jaume I and Roger de Llúria buildings were originally built and used as a military barracks. In 1868, the old military garrison was demolished and four years later, the Ciutadella park was created. In compensation, the Ministry of War required the building of two military barracks, Jaume I and Roger de Llúria (which were finished by 1887) and some annexed military pavilions.

The Ciutadella barracks were conceived on the basis of fixed modules, with quite elongated rectangular-shaped wings, for the ground floor and a further two storeys, with a pitched roof, organised around a porticoed rectangular patio. Over a century ago, the Ciutadella barracks introduced the characteristic shapes of the central Eixample in a suburban landscape.

In 1996 the renovation of the Jaume I terminated, and as of 1998 it began to be used for university pusposes, housing Economics, Business Management and Administration, Businees Sciences and Humanities. In the year 2000, the Roger de Llúria was inaugurated. The Ciutadella campus are currently  host to social sciences and humanities.
