Zona Universitària is a station in the Barcelona Metro and Trambaix networks, in the Les Corts district of Barcelona. It is currently the western terminus of metro line L3 and is served by tram lines T1, T2 and T3. It is named after the Universitat de Barcelona campus of the same name.[2][3][4]

The metro station is located under Avinguda Diagonal, between Carrer González Tablas and Avinguda Dr. Marañón. It has four entrances, two on each side of Avinguda Diagonal, and two 94-metre (308 ft) long side platforms. The entrance lobby features an artwork by the sculptor Angel Orensanz. The Trambaix stop lies some 250 metres (820 ft) to the east, in Carrer d'Adolf Florensa.[2][5][6]

The metro station opened in 1975, along with the other stations of the section of L3 between Zona Universitària and Sants Estació stations. This section was originally operated separately from L3, and known as L3b, until the two sections were joined in 1982.[2][4]

It is planned that the station will be served by the common section of metro lines L9 and L10, and work is currently underway to build the additional pair of platforms for these lines. In the longer term, an extension of line L3 beyond Zona Universitària is planned.[4]
