Club Universitario de La Plata is an Argentine rugby union and field hockey club. The rugby team currently plays in the Torneo de la URBA Grupo I, the first division of the Unión de Rugby de Buenos Aires league system.
"The gymnastics teacher Benigno Rodríguez Jurado, also an Universitario de Buenos Aires player, taught the rugby union rules to a group of young enthusiasts. This is considered the beginning of Club Universitario de La Plata, the best team we have in relation to technique" 
In 1959 the Government of the Province of Buenos Aires donated lands to Club Universitario in order to build club's facilities. Those lands were located in Manuel B. Gonnet, in La Plata Partido. During the decade of the 1970s Universitario added a children's division to its rugby categories.
The club would be promoted and relegated to lower divisions during the 1980s and 1990s, even reaching the first division in 1996 although Universitario did not last too much time in that level. In 2004 Universitario achieved its second promotion to first division although the team would be soon relegated to the second division, Torneo de la URBA Grupo II
In 2013, Universitario promoted to first division to play the 2014 season.
