This student residence is best known because of the five students who lived here and later went on to become famous in different fields: the poets: Federico García Lorca and Miguel Hernández; the painter: Salvador Dalí; the film director: Luis Buñuel; and the doctor: Severo Ochoa. Part of the building is now a residence for researchers and the rest belongs to a private foundation that organizes conferences, exhibitions, poetry readings and interdisciplinary forums that are open to the public. You'll find the neo-Mudéjar style building, built in 1911, behind the Natural Science Museum.
