Society Service House
The university headquarters has five departments: the Legal Office, the Accounting and Tax Support Center (NAF), the Business Observatory, the Department of Equity and Gender and the Architecture and Urban Planning Consultancy.
The House of Service to Society of the University of Azuay, with heritage construction and beautiful gardens, is the physical and symbolic space of our active presence in the city, the community, the region and the country. In this place, we reaffirm our firm commitment to scientific, academic, cultural and social advancement, as well as attention to the most vulnerable sectors of our society.
Each of these areas plays a critical role in realizing our mission to serve the community and promote more inclusive and equitable development.
The Free Legal Clinic of the University of Azuay is a valuable resource for the community. We offer free legal advice and sponsorship, supported by a Mediation Center specialized in resolving disputes in negotiable areas. Our commitment is to provide high-quality legal advice with a warm and ethical approach, guaranteeing total transparency in our services.
