UPAEP is a private university, founded in 1973 at the request of the people of the State of Puebla, where it has grown deep roots. The university is dedicated to service the community offering credited programs of excellence. It is worth mentioning that the UPAEP campus has a very attractive location; we could say it is an urban campus; which is located in the middle of the city of Puebla, in the metropolitan part just 2 blocks away from the touristic Avenue Juarez and some blocks from the historic center of Puebla, which, is considered Cultural Heritage of the Humanity by the UNESCO, since is made by buildings of colonial architecture. Thus, the UPAEP campus has an excellent accessibility for public transportation toward different points of the city as to the diverse shopping centers, movie theaters and entertainment sites found very near our campus, which is ideal for the student that desires to know the true daily Mexican life.


Puebla is located in the heart of Mexico, in the central part of the country, only 127 km (70 miles) southeast of Mexico City, near Veracruz, Acapulco, the Mayan Riviera and other cities.
