The Universidad de las Américas, Asociación Civil (UDLA, A.C.) is a university institution founded in 1940 with the name of Mexico City College (MCC). In the 1960s it changed its name to University of the Americas and later on to Universidad de las Américas, A.C., that prevails today.
Since it was founded it has been located in different facilities. First in rented buildings at the Colonia Roma in Mexico City, in the 1950s and later on in an 8-acre campus located on the Mexico-Toluca road. In the 1970s it moved to a new campus in the State of Puebla where it stayed until 1985 when the Board of Associates decided to move to Mexico City and separate from the Universidad de las Américas de Puebla.
At the present time the university continues its bilingual nature (English–Spanish) being the only institution in Mexico with that characteristic.
