The Manuel L. Quezon University (MLQU) is Now Home!



What do former House Speaker Feliciano "Sonny" Belmonte, Blas Ople, Wigberto Tanada, and Alberto Romulo have in common? All of them are alumni of Manuel L. Quezon University (MLQU)! These men, and countless others, are just a few of the Filipinos who helped forge the Philippines' political foundation and the government on which this country now stands. 

MLQU's list of notable alumni
MLQU was founded in 1947 as a law school by Dr. Leoncio Monzon and eighteen other lawyers and justices. Formerly known as Manuel L. Quezon Institute, the establishment later received university status in 1958 and started offering several other undergraduate courses such as Architecture, Engineering, Education, Arts and Sciences, and Criminology

Decades later, the school developed and grew in population, needing two campuses in Manila. Unfortunately, student population declined, especially at the school of law where the institution was initially founded. Through the dedication of its directors, major developments were planned and realized. In 2014, the university was acquired by New San Jose Builders Inc. and, with after just one year of operation, the number of enrollees doubled, leading to the school's relocation. 

MLQU is now home
From the campus on Hidalgo Street, Quiapo, Manila, the new MLQU moved to a more fitting location in Quezon City, making it much closer to the home of the foremost visionary after whom the school was named. Presently, two new departments occupy Victoria Towers situated along EDSA near Kamuning Road. The Victoria campus holds the new MLQU School of Law and the School of Professional Advancement and Continuing Education (SPACE). These two are just the start of more developments to come.

Apart from high quality law education, one new highlight of SPACE is its partnership with BLOOMBERG Professionals. This is currently the most sought after education partner of more than 700 corporate institutions and universities all over the world that offers cutting edge approaches in teaching Business and Finance. MLQU, as a partner institution, ensures quality education that will equip students and prepare them to face the real world as soon as they graduate.

Another new development is MLQU's partnership with the Chamber of Real Estate and Builders' Association Inc. (CREBA), allowing the university to offer Real Estate Management courses. With the country's booming real estate market, students who wish to pursue real estate development as a profession will have more grasp on the current trends of how the industry works and on the laws that govern it.

For the upcoming school years, an entirely new campus will moreover be built along Timog Avenue. This new home of MLQU will be quite different from other schools in the city because a game changer of design and concept was integrated in this development. The campus would house a condominium to accommodate residents and students as well as serve undergraduate courses while also featuring unique and state-of-the-art sports facilities.
