Universidade São Judas Tadeu (USJT) is a Brazilian private, for-profit university based in São Paulo. Established in 1971 as a college offering two undergraduate courses (Business Administration and Accounting), it only officially became a university in 1989.[1]


São Judas Tadeu University, or São Judas as it commonly referred to, has two campuses in the city of São Paulo: the main one, located in the district of Mooca is a five-building complex containing 174 classrooms, 128 laboratories, a large library, 2 large lecture theatres and a theatre. It has easy access to Bresser-Mooca and Belém São Paulo metro stations.

The university's campus in Butantã is a modern, recently inaugurated single building located minutes from the Butantã metro station. As of now,[clarification needed] it does not offer as many course options as the main campus in Mooca, although over the time there are projections of an increase in the number of students and consequently, courses offered.
