Pablo de Olavide University (UPO) was founded in 1997, making it one of the newest public universities in Spain. The UPO has over 10,000 students and has grown substantially since its inception.
The university is named after the Spanish-Peruvian politician Pablo de Olavide who contributed notably to planning the city of Seville.
Being a relatively young university, the UPO was planned as a North American-style campus with dedicated academic and residential space. Its 345-acres spread out southeast of Seville over the municipalities of Dos Hermanas, Alcalá de Guadaíra and Seville. Its facilities are modern, including campus-wide Wifi and Internet access, computer, television, video and audio centers, an open access library, sports facilities, and science laboratories.
It has numerous sports facilities, lawns, gym and a huge library. The University also boasts a student union building and offers transportation to the city center by bus or metro.
