Katipunan LRT Station is a station on the Manila Light Rail Transit System Line 2 (LRT-2). It is the only underground station in the entire line. The station is located in Loyola Heights in Quezon City and is named because of its location on Katipunan Avenue, one of Quezon City's main thoroughfares. The avenue is in turn named after the Katipunan revolutionary society.
This station is located beside Philippine School of Business Administration. Because of its location near Katipunan Avenue, the station's famous landmarks are Ateneo de Manila University and Miriam College, both of which lie on Katipunan Avenue, but lie some distance from the station. Commuters also get off at Katipunan station to go to the University of the Philippines Diliman, which is also some distance from the station.
Buses, taxis, jeepneys and tricycles are used to navigate the Katipunan area. Commuters headed to the area's universities, such as Ateneo de Manila, Miriam College, or University of the Philippines Diliman have to transfer to reach the campuses, since they lie some distance from the station.
