The University of Caloocan City was formed in 2004 out of Caloocan City Polytechnic College, which had been founded back in 1971.
CCPC's first programs are Bachelor's of Science degrees in Industrial Education (BSIE) and B.S. Business Technology (BSBT).
The school had first been located in a building at Caloocan High School. It transferred to its present location (at General San. Miguel St. Sangandaan, Caloocan City) when the first building burned.
CCPC or Caloocan City Polytechnic College started as a 2-year course college in 1971 and offered four-year courses in 1975. Its first programs are Bachelor of Science degrees in Industrial Education (BSIE) and B.S. Business Technology (BSBT).
In January 23, 2004 Caloocan City Council unanimously approved the Ordinance 1020-2003 principally authored by then councilor Gonzalez Jr. authorized the city government to convert the existing Caloocan City Polytechnic College into a full-pledged university. The initially city hall-funded tertiary educational institution will henceforth be called as University of Caloocan City, the lone public university in Caloocan.
UCC students sometimes called themselves as UCCians or Yusisista.
There are rumors that before they call it CCPC or UCC it was first known as CCC or Caloocan Community College.

The photo of UCC campus above is from my phone, I captured it back in 2007. If you got a better photo upload it somewhere else (PhotoBucket, ImageShack or TinyPic) then leave the URL as a comment below. As I always say I don't belong to UCC anymore I'm studying on another university, but I'm still helping UCC. I hope you can too.
