Philippine Normal University or PNU is a University in Manila, Philippines. Established in 1901 by the Americans as the Philippine Normal School, it was originally an institution for the training of teachers. It is located in the Ermita District. Situated in Manila's premier civic center, where the Manila City Hall, Rizal Park and National Museum of the Philippines are also located. Throughout its more than 100 years of existence it spurred four more campuses around the country. These are the Cadiz City, Agusan del Sur, Quezon, and Isabela campuses.


Cadiz CityThe Negros Occidental campus in Cadiz City was charted with the passage of Republic Act 4242. It opened on July 22, 1968.

Agusan del SurThe Agusan del Sur campus is one of the three campuses charted under Republic Act No. 4242. It opened on August 12, 1968.

IsabelaCoinciding with the establishment of the Negros Occidental and Agusan del Sur campuses as charted under the same law, the Isabela campus opened on July 26, 1971.

QuezonWhile the three other campuses was chartered under R.A. 4242, the Lopez campus started as a consortium with the Polytechnique University of the Philippines. After expiration of the agreement, the two partner educational institutions became separate two colleges independent of each other, and established as a separate campus of their respective mother unit.
