Pontificia Universidad Católica de Puerto Rico information
Lonely Planet review
This Catholic university sits behind an arch on the south side of Av Las Américas, across from the art museum. It serves about 10,000 students with programs in all major undergraduate disciplines and a law school. While this is a commuter campus (like almost all universities on the island), its students shape Ponce’s nightlife. While the draw for travelers to visit here is somewhat limited, when school’s in session the grounds offer a bustling scene in pleasant contrast to quiet afternoons spent in the city’s museums.
