In commemoration of the Centenary of the University Reform, the unveiling of the works that make up the “Portal of the Centenary” was formalized yesterday afternoon. The project includes two buildings- the Virtual Campus and the Student House- and the Centenary of the Reform’s monument.

At the center of the Portal, there is an allegorical monument of the historical Rectorate taking that tooke place at UNC in 1918. The iron structure is based on the historical picture that immortalizes the moment in which eight students went on the roof of the old Rectorate Building on Obispo Trejo St. and raised up a piece of the rector's office curtains like a flag.

At the right of the monument, there stands the Student House that responds -100 years later- to the proclaim of 1918’s students that asked the university authorities to have a house for the students. The glazed façade building will have meeting rooms, administrative offices of the University Federation of Córdoba (FUC) and a bar on the ground floor.
