Arturo Jauretche National University

Arturo Jauretche National University (UNAJ). Argentine public institution based in the town of Florencio Varela, in Greater Buenos Aires. With the mission of contributing through the production and distribution of knowledge, to the economic, social and cultural development of the region.


The UNAJ begins to write the first lines of its history on December 29, 2009 when the Congress of the Argentine Nation promulgates Law 26,576 for the creation of the Arturo Jauretche National University, in honor of the Buenos Aires writer Arturo Jauretche, based in the city of Florencio Varela, in the south of Greater Buenos Aires.

Since then, a set of planning, organization and management actions have begun for the new educational proposal framed in the National Project that gave rise to it and that is based on democratic values, the right to education, interdisciplinary work and committed relationship with the community.

On November 17, 2010, less than a year after the promulgation of the law for its creation, the headquarters of the rector’s office was opened on the corner of Av. San Martín and Granaderos, in the city of Florencio Varela.

Transfer of buildings and careers to the university

In January 2011, the building of the former YPF laboratories was transferred to the UNAJ as part of an act where the President officially signs the document in which the National University of La Plata gives up the 9-hectare property. and the building located at Av. Calchaquí at 6200.

A month later, the repair and construction works begin, with a total of 27 classrooms being inaugurated after six months, to which are added 15 more classrooms at the headquarters of the Institute of Health Sciences, which operates in the building attached to the Hospital El Crossing.

Already in 2012 and as part of the building recovery and refurbishment project, the Chemistry laboratory was completed and, in process, the Subsoil Materials and Recycling laboratory.

That same year, the Petroleum Engineering career was created within the framework of the launch of the “The University with YPF” Program. This Program, of the Undersecretariat for Management and Coordination of University Policies of the Ministry of Education of the Nation, aims to continue building the strategic alliance between the national university system and the productive system based on the decision that YPF is once again in role of national development.

Another fundamental step for the organization and development of the Arturo Jauretche National University was given with the inauguration of the new rectory offices, in February 2013, in part of the building recovered from the former YPF laboratories and occupying more than 1000 m2.

In these offices, in addition to the rector’s office, the Center for Educational Policy and the Center for Policy and Territory operate, among other fundamental dependencies for the strengthening of university life.



Located in the southern area of ​​Greater Buenos Aires, its area of ​​influence extends to the districts of Florencio Varela, Almirante Brown and Berazategui, which are part of the group called “Conurbano Sur.
