About National University of the South

The Universidad Nacional del Sur, or National University of the South (UNS), is southern Argentina’s largest higher education institution and it is located in the city of Bahia Blanca on the country’s east coast.

UNS was created in 1956 after being approved by decree and absorbed the Instituto Tecnológico del Sur, a technology-based affiliate of the former National University of La Plata. UNS became the seventh institution in Argentina’s national university system, which now has 39 member institutions.

Today around 24,000 undergraduate and around 1,300 postgraduate students study at UNS, which is comprised of 16 individual departments. The university’s main campus in central Bahia Blanca hosts the majority of the departments, in addition to the laboratories and Central Library that are located there. The departments of Humanities, Geography, Tourism, Administration Science, Economics, Agronomy and Law are located outside of the main campus but still within the city limits, while the Department of Agriculture is located around 35km from the city in a rural setting.
