Welcome to Universidad Panamericana and I hope to meet you soon and host you to make you feel at home away from home.

UP Campus Mexico stands out for its architectural composition centered around three buildings of great historical value. The first is the ancient Mixcoac wool mill, built in the 18th Century and now part of the catalogue of historical buildings of the National Institute for Art and History (INAH). The second building is the old summer home which the Chancellor family integrated into the wool mill at the end of the 19th Century. The building is now known by the name of its former owners. Finally, there is the building where Mexican writer José Fernández de Lizardi wrote his work,  El periquillo sarmiento , also listed in the catalogue of colonial monuments of INAH. These historical building co-exist with modern facilities, appropriate for studying. These include chemistry and fluid labs, as well as a TV studio, workshops for innovation, and photography, and labs for gastronomy or flexible manufacturing. No project is put aside for lack of facilities.

In this way, the Department fulfills three important functions:

CHAPLAINCY

We have a chapel and celebrate Holy Mass from Monday to Friday at 8:45am. The chapel is open every weekday from 7:30am to 9:30pm.


Sacraments are administered to those who desire them.


The chaplains carry out the task of spritual formation and attention for students who ask for their guidance and advice. We offer constant and open dialogue to the University community, regardless of creed.


SOCIAL COMMITMENT 

Within the ideology of our University,  an important place is occupied by the formation of social awareness in our students , employees and in general, anyone who comes to our institution.


The Department of Social Commitment UP was originally launched 9 years ago. Since then, we have worked to continue and strengthen the work of social service coordinators in the University.


We promote long-term social welfare projects for vulnerable society members.
