Jerez is the fifth biggest Andalusian city, with a population superior to 200,000 inhabitants. It is a city that is characterised by its dynamism and quality of life. It has an industrial tradition originated by the historic importance of the wine sector, marked by its own quality sign in an increasingly attractive environment for tourism and the realization of congresses, as well as for the introduction of new industries.
The University Campus of Jerez, also known as “Campus de la Asunción”, is the result of the localisation of two public university centres in Jerez in the same academic space, since the foundation of the University of Cadiz in 1979. These are the Faculty of Law and the College of Business Studies (this last now converted in Faculty of Social Sciences and Communication). Both centres, however, hold their origins in 1972 (College of Business Studies) and 1973 (Law College).
Located in the University Avenue (previously a stretch of the Arcos Avenue), the Campus occupies part of the land where previously were found the old artillery barracks of "La Asunción". Nearby are the Municipal Stadium and Sports Complex of Chapín which, along with La Rotonda del "Toro de Troja", are excellent landmarks making it easy to locate.
The new campus has 45,000 m2 of built area, 30,000 m2 of green areas, 700 parking spaces and 4 main buildings: Lecture rooms, Offices and Seminars, the library and Common Services.
The Campus of Jerez is fully dedicated to social and legal studies, and also has a hall for nursing studies. In the year 2005-2006, the Degree in Advertising and Public Relations (second cycle), started being offered. The double degrees; Law Degree and Diploma in Business Studies (six years), as well as the Diplomas in Tourism and Business (four years) are another feature of the training offered in the Jerez Campus.
