Surely, and its particular history, this university is felt by society as a conquest. Its closure, which occurred in 1980 during a dark period of the Argentine past, was repaired in an act of strict justice to the enactment of Law 23,044, which ordered its reopening, which occurred on July 30, 1984, and restoration of democracy in our country.

Regional Centers are born from the goal of bringing large segments of the population offer quality university, which favors regional needs and demands and the form of decentralized management. The three Regional Centres were founded during the administration of Dr. Mignone, a matter of seconds Rector controller, through agreements with the respective municipalities. Fulfilled, then, an important political function of education, and that served to satisfy some of the claims made by many people in the region. They operated as "inlets", helping to strengthen the foundation of the University, through an influx of students.
Currently, these centers are an integral part thereof, which accompanies growth in harmony to the whole university. The overall coordination is carried out by the Department of Academic Affairs, and each a Director and Deputy Director are responsible for academic coordination, which is executed by the Departments of the University.
