The Rector

The Rector is the University's highest academic authority, represents the institution and is responsible for its running, governance and administration. The Rector's functions include implementing lines of action approved by the collegiate bodies.

The Rectorate Building, located in the city centre and annexed to the Historic Building, constitutes the Rector's official office. Historically, it was the building that housed one of the Valdés foundations: the Colegio de Niñas Recoletas Huerfanas (Boarding School for Orphan Girls), designed to house the orphaned and poor girls of the diocese of Oviedo. The original constitution of this centre dates back to 1676, the year it was opened, and sought to undertake the education of women employing an innovative spirit that included such unusual activities as reading and arithmetic.
