University of Guanajuato Fact Sheet 2015-16.pdf

The academic tradition and history of the University of Guanajuato date back to the eighteenth century, colonial era of the maximum blossoming of the Villa de Guanajuato- afterwards a city since 1741 - and its booming mines. The University of Guanajuato boasts an academic staff recognized for its high quality. This staff carries out essential work in the areas of instruction, research, and extension. Guanajuato is located in the geographic center of Mexico, about three and half-hours north-west of Mexico City, and its capital city is one of Mexico’s most famous tourist spots. It is a UNESCO world heritage site and city planners must abide by strict rules when building and refurbishing buildings in order to maintain their colonial integrity.
