The UNIVERSIDAD DE MANILA (also known as City College of Manila) is a public university in the Manila, Philippines. It is one of the two city-funded universities of the City of Manila.
The main campus of UNIVERSIDAD DE MANILA, which houses the Administration Building of the Division of City Schools-Manila, is located at the heart of the Mehan Garden adjacent to the Liwasang Bonifacio, Manila City Library and the Light Rail Transit Central Terminal. Apart from its main campus, the university maintains several satellite centers in many parts of the City of Manila such as Escolta, Recto, Del Pan, San Andres, Dapitan and Tayuman.
The university’s original name is City College of Manila (CCM), but when Lito Atienza took office as Mayor the name was changed to UNIVERSIDAD DE MANILA (UDM). In 2007, when Lim was re-elected as Mayor, he reverted UDM to its original name; however, a few months into office, he renamed it Gat Andrés Bonifacio University.
The founder of the university, Mayor Alfredo Lim, said that the “egalitarian UDM complements the elite PLM. For its part, the City College delivers practical education to average student.
