The University of Cebu (UC) (Cebuano: Unibersidad sa Sugbo; Filipino: Pamantasan ng Cebu) is an educational institution in Cebu City, Philippines founded in 1964 offering preschool, grade school, junior & senior high school, undergraduate degrees, and post-graduate degrees. It currently has four campuses.


A group of young men headed by lawyer Augusto W. Go, formed an alliance and set up an educational institution of what was then called the Cebu College of Commerce, then later renamed Cebu Central Colleges (CCC). Starting with a handful of enrollees, the college was established on April 1, 1964. It grew over time and became the University of Cebu. Its philanthropic mantra has been "No tuition fee increase."

The University of Cebu has been recognized by the Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities Commission on Accreditation (PACU-COA). As of 2014 it had more than 60,000 students.

Below is a much comprehensive timeline on the University of Cebu's history:

The university has four campuses:

Another campus, the former UC South Campus along Sanciangko Street, was demolished and replaced by an expansion of UC's sister company Elizabeth Mall (E-Mall).
