The Universidad Autónoma de Yucatán (Autonomous University of Yucatan), or UADY, is an autonomous public university in the state of Yucatán, Mexico, with its central campuses located in the state capital of Mérida. It is the largest tertiary educational institution (Spanish: educación superior) in the state, offering some 41 different courses at the undergraduate or Bachelor's degree (licenciatura) level, and 26 postgraduate Master's degrees (maestrías). The institution was established in 1922 by then governor Felipe Carrillo Puerto as the Universidad Nacional del Sureste, but its lineage may be traced back to a Spanish Empire royal decree promulgated in 1611, that allowed for the creation of the Colegio de San Francisco Javier in Mérida.

  • The visit is very quick. The building is very pretty, beautiful architecture and pretty courtyard. The university is in operation, so we're careful not to disturb.

  • The building of the Autonoma University of Yucatan dates from the seventeenth century is very well preserved, its central courtyard has a sober touch, without a doubt the most beautiful is that it is in use for the population...
