The University


Founded in 1983 in order to attend the higher educational needs of the gulf center region of Mexico, the Puebla campus of the Ibero located only 15 minutes away from the city’s downtown- at present houses, within its functional installations, a population of 5,000 students who are aspirants to bachelor’s and master’s degrees and doctorates.





Is a city in the central part of Mexico, capital of the state which bears the same name and, due to its importance, is the fourth most important city in the country. It was founded in 1531 and has an approximate population of 1,750,000 inhabitants. One historical center of America, the valley where it is located ranks among some of the most important culture creative nucleus on the continent.


Puebla -whose industry and commerce have a privileged setting- is a social and cultural meeting place. So, it is not surprising that arts and crafts, schools and universities, churches and convents and markets and plazas have seen Puebla declared a Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Its educational tradition is closely linked to The Society of Jesus: Puebla has been the major Jesuit educational center after the metropolitan area of Mexico City.





We offer the residences hall on campus; it could be single or double occupancy with a cafeteria and kitchen facilities. You can also ask for a room in a hotel near to the campus but we highly recommend you to live with a Mexican family to experiment a total immersion. As soon as we receive your application, we will process the request for a room at the residences, hotel or a placement in a family.
