The University of the Philippines Cebu (Cebuano: Unibersidad sa Pilipinas sa Sugbo; Filipino: Unibersidad ng Pilipinas sa Cebu; also referred to as UPC or UP Cebu) is a public research university and the youngest constituent university of the University of the Philippines System located in Cebu City, the capital city of Cebu province in the Philippines. It was founded on May 3, 1918, ten years after the founding of UP in 1908. It is considered[according to whom?] as the University's flagship campus in Central Visayas.
UP Cebu was formerly under the administrative supervision of UP Visayas, along with three other satellite campuses, namely UP Miag-ao, UP Iloilo City and UP Tacloban. On September 24, 2010, the UP Board of Regents elevated the status of UP Cebu to that of an autonomous unit, in preparation for its elevation to the status of a constituent university of the UP System in around five to seven years. On October 27, 2016, UP Cebu was elevated to constituent university status.
The college has two campuses. The Lahug campus is located in Gorordo Avenue, Lahug, Cebu City. It occupies a 12-hectare site which was donated by the Cebu Provincial Government in 1929; however, a fraction of the land is occupied by informal settlers. The new UP Cebu SRP campus features the UP Professional Schools which offers degree programs such as Master of Business Administration, Master of Science in Computer Science, Master of Education and Master of Science in Environmental Studies.
The successive births and rebirths, and academic upheavals have vested UPC with a succession of names.
