It was founded in 1962[1] and it is considered as one of the most prestigious universities in Peru; 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.
