Directions, Transport and Travel To and From Malaga University
(Malaga, Spain)

The highways leading to Malaga are well-developed, many of them offering excellent views of the coast and countryside. If you are coming from western towns such as Torremolinos and Marbella, you can drive east along the N-340 to E-15 to Malaga. Accidents are common on the N-340, though, so driving can be slow. Likewise, those coming from the east end of the Costa del Sol can take the N-340/E-15 westbound.

Travel by Air

Flights to Malaga are very affordable, especially from the United Kingdom, Germany, and most of northern Europe. Foreign students usually arrive at the Malaga International Airport.
