The University of Granada will host SEIMUN 2017



The Universidad de Granada, founded in 1531, continues a long teaching tradition, the roots of which can be traced back to the madrasahs of the last Nasrid Kingdom.

The University is a vibrant presence in the city of Granada, benefiting from the distinctive beauty of its environment and a privileged geographical location due to its proximity to the Sierra Nevada, an excellent ski resort and the Mediterranean coast, with several major tourist sites, including Motril, Almuñécar and Salobreña.

In Granada, there are four University Campuses, as well as the “Campus Centro”, in which all the centres spread throughout the historic part of the city are brought together. The UGR‘s policy of using buildings of historical and cultural value has enriched its heritage, as well as promoting the restoration and maintenance of these buildings. In addition to this emphasis on more traditional elements, the Health Science Technological Park, which is still being developed, demonstrates our strong commitment to innovation by promoting interaction with technological bio-health companies and favouring high-quality healthcare and biomedical knowledge. There are two other UGR Campuses in the cities of Ceuta and Melilla, in Northern Africa.

Over 60,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students study at the UGR, with another 20,000 students taking additional courses, language courses, summer courses etc. The University employs 3650 lecturers and over 2000 administration, technical and maintenance staff.

The Rector is Ms Pilar Aranda Ramírez and the Management of the University operates through several collegiate bodies, such as the Faculty and the Governing Council, and individual bodies, such as the Vice-Rectors’ Offices, Management and General Secretariat. On the General Secretariat page you can find, amongst other information, the Official Journal, Regulations and a telephone directory of the University.



The second South European International Model of United Nations (SEIMUN 2017) will be held in Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería de la Edificación (ETSIE), placed in the Fuentenueva Campus.

The ETSIE building was inaugurated in 1972, work of the architects Carlos Pfeifer and Alberto López Blanco.

It is a building of four bodies distributed around a central courtyard of almost square form. Three of the bodies have four floors. It provides many classrooms, administrative services, teaching offices, practical classes, two graphic study rooms and four computer rooms.

Staff and participants will work in one of the best colleges of Granada, having modern rooms and IT facilities on hand to make the debates as easy and amusing as posible.
