The Bayamón Central University—or Universidad Central de Bayamón (UCB) in Spanish—is a private, Catholic, and non-profit university in Bayamón, Puerto Rico. Its predecessor began in 1961[citation needed] by the Dominican Order as a community college of the Catholic University of Puerto Rico (today known as the Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico).
