UTN is one of the 24 regional faculties of the Universidad Tecnológica Nacional of Argentina and it was created September 24, 1954. In the beginning it occupied the Mary O'Graham buildings, and later the building of the Colegio Nacional.

On October 1, 1961, the national government signed the "(Nº9035)" decree, which designated an official place/location for the University. This decree stated that the University was to be located on the corner of 60th avenue and 124th street, in the city of La Plata. But it was not until 1966 that the building was inaugurated with help from the government of the "Provincia de Buenos Aires."
