PLM is the first and only local university created by a national law. It was created by Republic Act 4196 or "An Act Authorizing the City of Manila to Establish and Operate the University of City Manila" on June 19, 1965.
The passage of R.A. 4196 falls on the same day as national hero Dr. Jose Rizal's birthday.
PLM stands on historic grounds. On its site once stood the Universidad de San Ignacio (1590-1798), Universidad Maximo de San Ignacio, Colegio de San Jose, and Ateneo de Municipal de Manila (1865-1901).
