Lyceum-Northwestern University (L-NU) is a medical college located in Dagupan City, Philippines founded by Dr. Francisco Quimson Duque and Mrs. Florencia Tiongson Duque in 1969.

Lyceum-Northwestern University though bearing the word Lyceum is not affiliated with Lyceum of the Philippines University since LPU is the first and original institution in the country to bear the word Lyceum.


Lyceum-Northwestern started as a single-room nursing school at the Dagupan City Polyclinic Hospital and was then called the Dagupan City School of Nursing. In 1974, Dr. Duque acquired the Northwestern Educational Institution. From the merger emerged the name Lyceum-Northwestern. In the latter part of the year, Lyceum-Northwestern spearheaded a consortium of local tertiary schools and founded the Northern Philippines Institute of Medicine. Lyceum-Northwestern became the "first medical school of the north." The institute began with an enrollment of 19 students. The consortium lasted two years.

On November 19, 2001, Lyceum-Northwestern was granted its university status.
