Get to know the UDC’s location in northern Galicia.
UDC has an excellent social environment. It has a number of attractions, unique in Spain, that make it an ideal place to integrate work with a great quality of life, thanks to a modern network of services and a wide range of leisure activities for all tastes.
Throughout the whole year you can enjoy a full schedule of social and cultural events: philharmonic orchestras, opera, concerts, exhibitions and first-class artistic events are good examples of it.
The sports offer is also covered by numerous public and private facilities. Golf courses, sailing facilities and one of the football teams of what is considered the best football league in world.
Remember also that Galicia (the community where UDC is located) is one of the safest regions of the country. Fewer homicides, robberies, house raids or attacks. The downward trend in crimes and offenses makes it one of the autonomous regions with the lowest crime rate in a country that is already the third safest in Europe.
On the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, located in the northwest corner of Spain, A Coruña is a historic city whose symbol is the Tower of Hercules (Unesco World Heritage since 2009).

A Coruña can only be described as relentless. This metropolis has managed to provide itself with a complex and extensive network of infrastructure and companies that have allowed it to become the economic and political heart of Galicia and one of the highlights of Spain and Europe.
