NU inaugurates first Central Luzon campus



National University brings quality education closer to home as it inaugurates its first campus in Central Luzon at SM City Baliwag in Bulacan. NU Baliwag is the fourth campus to open as part of the University’s 10-year expansion program.

As shared by National University (NU) chairman Hans Sy, the NU expansion anchors on the mission of their late patriarch, Henry Sy Sr., to help Filipinos gain access to education.

Located at the Annex Building of SM City Baliwag, the 14,259.13-square meter campus will be able to accommodate at least 6,000 students once face-to-face class resumes. NU Baliwag aims to provide National University’s high standards of educational services not just to students in the first class urban municipality of Baliwag, but also in some parts of Bulacan, as far as Pampanga.
