Main campusEdit

The majority of the university's buildings and facilities are located on the main campus in Villa Elisa, San Luis. Many of the buildings on the campus date from the early 19th century when the university was first built, including the university's three libraries, as well as the teaching facilities for arts, humanities and social sciences.

Also situated on the northern boundary of the campus is the Estadio Universitario, which as well as being a facility used by the university for athletics and football, is also the home of football team Universidad de San Luis UD. However, the club is now independent of the university and shares the stadium's lease with the university.

Both these facilities were opened in 2009 and have crowd capacities of 5,000 and 8,000 respectively, as well as training facilities.

The campus is also home to several public spaces, including squares and parkland. In addition, the majority of student housing is on the campus, as well as several shops, banks and bars.
