Established in 1613, Universidad Nacional de Córdoba is one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in Latin America. The colonial university buildings located downtown were declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2000.

UNC has played a vital role both in our national and regional history. Its faculties cover all areas of knowledge, and it has over one hundred research centers, 25 libraries, 17 museums and two astronomical observatories: all living proof of the thriving force of a university conceived as a combination of tradition, innovation and excellence.
