The University of Lima (Spanish: Universidad de Lima) is a private nonprofit university in Lima, Peru. It was founded in 1962.[1] The decision to create the University of Lima was made in the early 1960s by a group of university professors, along with commerce and industry representatives. It was after two years of effort that they managed to start it. It officially started operating on 25 April 1962. At the beginning only had with 120 students in a small campus in the Jesús María District. Due to the university's quick growth, the campus in the Monterrico area of Surco was inaugurated to serve the university's space needs.

Today, the University of Lima has over 16,000 students, twelve majors, a postgraduate school, a general studies program and a scientific research institute, along with many services for students, faculty, and the community at large.
