Community and Student Life

AUEB is conveniently located in downtown Athens less than one kilometre from the National Museum and the central Omonia Square. The program is housed in the new Graduate School building at Evelpidon & Lefkados Street. It is located across from the Pedion Areos Park and near the Panellinion Stadium. This modern building, initiated in 1999, is well organized with amphitheaters, classrooms, computers labs, and student areas.

The area around the University (Patission-Kypseli) is a very lively area with a public transportation network with subway, trolleys and buses that reaches all of Athens and its surroundings. The area is easy to walk, with many different ethnic restaurants and neighborhoods, museums, shops, theaters and sports events.

Delphi, ski resorts, and the Greek islands with the sandy beaches are a little farther, but still close enough to explore over the weekend. These, as well as many other places, are special places and famous tourist destinations. For people who enjoy city life, but from time to time need a little space, the Pedion Areos Park is a short walk away. For keeping fit, the Panellinion Stadium and Sports Facilities (tennis, swimming pool, etc.) are across the street.

A number of restaurant and cafes are conveniently located in or around the University area. Students can participate in a number of athletic activities, using the facilities of the nearby Panellinion Stadium. In addition, students can participate in the various cultural activities of the University, such as theatrical and musical performances, dancing, etc.
