Federico Villarreal National University (Spanish: Universidad Nacional Federico Villarreal, UNFV) is a public university located in Lima, Peru. It was named in honor of the Peruvian mathematician Federico Villarreal.

History

It first functioned as a branch of the Community University of the Center - Universidad Comunal del Centro (UCC) based in Huancayo. That same year, the Peruvian geographer, philosopher, historian and politician Javier Pulgar Vidal was commissioned to manage the university.

The Lima branch of the UCC began its activities in a rented house, located at 262 Moquegua street. The entrance exams were set for the month of August 1960 and classes began on 16 September of the same year.

In 1961, the Community University of the Center was nationalized as the National University of the Center of Peru. Due to the emergence of disagreements with the central headquarters in Junin, Víctor Raúl Haya de la Torre promoted the creation of the Lima branch and thus managed to declare its autonomy in January 1963.

The Federico Villarreal National University was created by Order Nº 14692 on 30 October 1963. The law to create the university was presented by the APRA parliamentary bench, exposed and defended by Luis Alberto Sánchez, and promulgated by Fernando Belaunde Terry.

Together they are offering 60 bachelor programs, 52 master programs, and 13 doctorates.
