The University of the East Caloocan Campus is a private university in Caloocan City, Philippines. The university is one of the three campuses of the University of the East. It is an autonomous unit headed by a Chancellor, with the College of Business Administration, Arts and Sciences, Engineering, and Fine Arts. UE Caloocan is called Caloocan Campus to distinguish it from the Manila Campus on C.M. Recto Avenue.HistoryIn June 1954, a new campus was opened on a 4.86 hectare lot along Samson Road, Caloocan, then it was known as UE Tech. With the Technical School as a junior college offering liberal arts courses and training technical subjects, and a complete secondary course with both academic and vocational curricula, this brought the university into compliance with the 2-2 Plan of the Department of Education.School year 1957 – 1958 marked the offering of general courses leading to the Associate of Arts, Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Business Administration degrees and a one-year Secretarial course leading to a Certificate in Secretarial Science. The next six years saw the construction of the High School Building, the Gymnasium, the Applied Industrial Training Building, the Home Economics Building, the block-long Shop Buildings, the Cement Products Shop and the Woodworking and Construction Building.By school year 1960 – 1961, first and second year Liberal Arts, first and second year Commerce and Pre-law courses were offered. By August 1964, the UETS started phasing out its technical offerings. The elementary school and the High School as well as Secretarial courses were also phased out but in their place, Engineering courses and a complete Business Administration program were offered starting in 1977. Thus, began the campus shift from being a vocational-technical school to becoming an academic extension of UE Manila.
