The University of Cebu (UC) is an educational institution in Cebu City, Philippines founded in 1964, offering preschool, grade school, junior & senior high school, undergraduate degrees, and post-graduate degrees.


It has four campuses:

  • the Main Campus along Sanciangko Street;
  • the Banilad Campus along Gov. Cuenco Ave., Brgy. Banilad;
  • the UC-LM Campus (stands for the cities Lapu-Lapu & Mandaue) situated along A.C. Cortes Ave., Brgy. Looc, Mandaue City;
  • and the Mambaling Campus (also known as the Maritime Educational Training Center/UC-METC) along Alumnos St., Brgy. Mambaling.
  • Another campus, the former UC South Campus along Sanciangko Street, was demolished and replaced by an expansion of UC's sister company Elizabeth Mall (E-Mall).

    A group of young men headed by lawyer Augusto W. Go, formed an alliance and set up an educational institution of what was then called the Cebu College of Commerce, then later renamed Cebu Central Colleges (CCC). Starting with a handful of enrollees, the college was established on April 1, 1964. It grew over time and became the University of Cebu. Its philanthropic mantra has been "No tuition fee increase."

    The University of Cebu has been recognized by the Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities Commission on Accreditation (PACU-COA). As of 2014 it had more than 60,000 students.
