From Moncloa:

Take Arco de la Victoria Ave. (head for Ciudad Universitaria). Turn left at the roundabout on Cardenal Cisneros Square. Continue through Juan de Herrera Ave. At the street’s end, take the Martín Fierro Ave. to the left. From the Séneca Ave. turn right into the second street (right-turn is not allowed on the first street), turn right but do not cross the bridge. At the traffic light, turn right into Senda del Rey St and then right on Obispo Trejo St.

From Príncipe Pío:

At the end of Valladolid Ave., take the right lane. Senda del Rey St. should be opposite you, on the right side of the road. The access to get there is a 45º angle street that crosses Séneca Ave.

By M-30 from the north:

Coming from the North, exit on Valladolid Ave. This road runs parallel to Senda del Rey St. Once you leave behind the traffic light, the building of the School of Economic Sciences is on the left-hand side. To get there, take a 180º turn at the traffic light located behind the subway. After that, turn right leaving the main lane in order to cross to the Valladolid Ave. Finally, turn left.

By M-30 from the south:

Exit Valladolid Ave. Go perpendicularly to Senda del Rey St. to cross Valladolid Ave. and turn left on the second street (the first street is Valladolid Ave).
