Miguel Hernández University

Visiting the UMH


The Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH) has four campuses located in the Province of Alicante: Elche (central campus), Orihuela, Sant Joan d'Alacant, and Altea.

The campuses are located within a 50-km radius around the city of Alicante. Alicante and Elche's international airport ( Alicante-Elche Airport; code: ALC), offers direct flights to and from many European cities. It is located 10 km from both Elche and Alicante, 80 km from Altea, and 30 km from Orihuela. It is easily reached using the A-7 freeway, as well as by the N-332 and N-340 national roads. The airport is also linked to the cities of Elche and Alicante by bus. To go there from Elche, use the 1A or 1B lines, while from Alicante this is done via the C6 line. Subús is the company managing these routes.

The cities of Elche, Orihuela, and Alicante are connected by regional trains (Murcia-Alicante). Alicante's train station is a 15-minute walk to the airport's bus stop at the Plaza de Luceros, from where you can continue by bus to the Alicante-Elche Airport (aeropuerto-Alicante line). Travel between Alicante and Altea is also possible on the tram. The tram has a station at the Plaza de Luceros, where the bus connecting Alicante with the airport also stops.

Alicante is also linked with the principal Spanish capitals via medium- and long-distance regional trains.

To go to Sant Joan d'Alacant, you can take the bus connecting the Alicante-Elche Airport with Alicante (to the Plaza de Luceros bus stop), and then continue on the Subús urban bus line 23.
