Once you’ve landed at Madrid Barajas Airport, there are several options to get to the city. You could either go by taxi (flat fee of
30€ regardless of your destination), airport bus or metro. To make your arrival and first few days as smooth as possible check out
these helpful hints and tips that will get you ready to get the most out of your time abroad.
For those who have never been to Madrid before, the city can be a bit overwhelming at first sight. This is why we tell everybody
that they can think of the Citylife Madrid office as your home base! In their office there is a nice lounge area with free WIFI and
the team is there to give you all the support you may need! Feel home at their office and take a breath to relax: All support is
completely free of charge. Theywill help you to:
GET ALL THE HELP YOU NEED UPON ARRIVAL: Come pick up your free Madrid Survival Kit and ask Citylife Madrid any kind of
questions. Their team consists of ex-international students who are experts when it comes to Madrid. They will also explain
important do's and dont's: From understanding how to protect your belongings from theft and important contacts in case of any
emergency, to finding information (academic, leisure, etc.) and hints and tips on where to buy cheap things for your new room.
They will give you a briefing on important topics so that you are all set to start exploring this beautiful city.
FIND A ROOM & RECEIVE GENERAL ADVICE ON DO'S AND DONT'S WITH REGARDS TO HOUSING: Finding a room in Madrid can
be a bit of a challenge. Citylife Madrid help you understand the “must knows” when it comes to housing, e.g. things to have in
mind when it comes to signing a contract and paying the “fianza”, best neighbourhoods to live in, explication of the “gastos”,
exterior vs. interior, contract check, noise level and more.
GET A SPANISH SIM CARD: Understanding the exact costs and the fine print when it comes to choosing the best SIM card deal is a
bit complicated. Citylife Madrid will explain what you need to bear in mind and watch out for.
PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION CARD & ABONO (MONTHLY TICKET): Almost all students in Madrid use the public transportation
system on a daily basis. The cheapest and most convenient way is to get your monthly transportation pass, which gives you full
access to all Madrid public transportation. If you didn't order your transportation card online before departure, stop by Citylife
Madrid office in the mornings and obtain your card instantly. Please bring a passport sized photo as well as an ID/Passport with
you. This will save you time, money and hassle as the waiting time to receive your transportation card during the peak of student
arrival times can be up to 3 weeks.
GETTING LEGAL: There is always lots of confusion among international students when it comes to legal paperwork like the
Empadronamiento and the NIE/TIE. Citylife Madrid will give you information and guidance to support you in a potential
application process for these legal papers.
STOP BY YOUR INTERNATIONAL OFFICE AND COMPLETE YOUR ENROLLMENT
Next important step within your first days in Madrid, is to stop by your international office to finish the sign in process for your
classes. Don't forget to check on the details of a potential language course offered by your university and the exact dates of the
official welcome day / welcome week. Attending the official orientation day(s) of your university is always an important part of
starting at a new university, so you should plan on attending in case you will be here in Madrid on

What is the DELE?
The DELE exam is an official exam, internationally recognized and prestigious, not only among educational
institutions, but also in the business world. By obtaining a DELE Diploma, you are demonstrating your
knowledge of the Spanish language for both your future educational as well as professional endeavours. This is
your opportunity to obtain tangible proof of your Spanish level, which is valid for life.

HEALTH
Hopefully, you will be healthy and happy during your semester in Madrid. If you are not feeling well, for minor occurrences, I
recommend going to a pharmacy. A pharmacist will assist you. Usually they are very helpful.
If you need to see a doctor, you can go to any private clinic close by to your house and receive treatment. In most cases, you
will need to pay upfront, and file with your insurance company to be reimbursed.
In case of an emergency, you can go to any emergency room at any public hospital in Spain and you will be attended. Billing
can be handled following treatment, giving you time to contact your insurance company to find out how to proceed.

SAFETY
Fortunately, Madrid poses no particular safety or health hazards. However, as in any large city, it is important to take
some general precautions. Girls ALWAYS must look after their bags, and guys should ALWAYS know where their wallet is.
Metros and city buses, especially during key traffic hours (in the mornings when people are going to work and in the
afternoons when they are going home), are places where it is not uncommon for people to get their wallets or other
belongings stolen.
Watch out for the people who are around you on the metro, always have your bag close to you and watch out for
people who get very close to you. In the area around Puerta del Sol, at pretty much any time of day or night, you should be
extra careful and aware of what is going on around you. Avoid taking money out at an ATM machine in areas like Sol,
Opera, Callao late at night. Don’t ever leave any belongings unattended in bars, restaurants, or clubs.
