The University of Cádiz

The University of Cádiz is the sum of all people who are part of it and of those who approach the institution to be trained, know what we do or gain access to the multiple services that the UCA renders to society.



With the constitution of its first Senate, the 30th of October 1979 marked the birth of the University of Cadiz, the culmination of a long process in the demand for a university institution that would recover the fruitful tradition of higher education studies initiated and developed with the support of maritime and commercial activities in modern and contemporary times for Cadiz and its province.
