The University of the Philippines (UP) was established in 1908 by Act No. 1870 of the Philippine Legislature to “give advanced instruction in literature, philosophy, the sciences and the arts, and professional and technical training to every qualified student, irrespective of age, sex, nationality, religious belief, or political affiliation.”
Research has always been embedded in the culture of the University of the Philippines. As mandated by RA 9500, or the UP Charter of 2008, the University shall lead in initiating innovations in research, and serve as a research university by promoting and implementing research and development in various fields of expertise.

The 13 UPD residence halls play an important role in the total development of students. These residence halls provide an atmosphere conducive to sound intellectual, physical, emotional, spiritual, social and cultural pursuits. They are living laboratories on campus where students are able to integrate the interplay between academic and non-academic learning experiences. No other system of the University has the potential to impact the passing student more than his/her place of residence.
My education was holistic and made me understand the deeper need to learn not just for personal academic growth but to better contribute to addressing the plight of Filipinos.
The university is very okay
Studying in UP has exposed me to systemic problems in scientific research. It can be discouraging, but it has also strengthened my resolve to work towards changing the system for the better.
