It was founded by Dr. Jose P. Laurel, who became the third president of the Philippines and one of the most acclaimed. It is the only university founded by a president of the republic. The university is named after "lykeion", the grove in ancient Athens where Aristotle taught his pupils. The institute's educational vision is founded on principles Dr. Jose P. Laurel set down.

Two of its most prominent features are its entry point, the "Hall of Heroes" which exhibits busts of revered Philippine historical figures sculpted by the National Artist Guillermo Tolentino; and, the famous "Lyceum Tower" which stands witness to the university's history and continuing progress.

Other campuses of LPU include the following:
*Lyceum of the Philippines University - Batangas (formerly Lyceum of Batangas) in Batangas City, Batangas;
*Lyceum of the Philippines University - Cavite in General Trias, Cavite;
*Lyceum of the Philippines - Laguna (formerly Lyceum Institute of Technology) in Calamba City, Laguna; and,
*Lyceum - St. Cabrini College of Allied Medicine (a joint effort between Lyceum of the Philippines - Laguna and St. Frances Cabrini Medical Center) in Sto. Tomas, Batangas.

Many disciplines are taught in the university, yet foreign service has consistently remained the university's flagship course. The Lyceum of the Philippines University has produced many leaders and officials in Philippine public service as well as in the country's foreign affairs department.

It is a member of the Intramuros Consortium which includes the technical school Mapúa Institute of Technology, the Catholic school Colegio de San Juan de Letran, and the city-owned "Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila" (University of the City of Manila).

The Lyceum of the Philippines University opened its gates to its first students on July 7, 1952.


The Lyceum of the Philippines University main campus at Intramuros was built on the site where the old San Juan de Dios Hospital was located.

Today, all classrooms are spacious and air conditioned to facilitate learning. All these are wired through the university's integrated computer network.

The school's motto is"Veritas et fortitudo", which means "truth and courage".

The Lyceum of the Philippines University offers programs and classical courses such as Law, the liberal arts, diplomacy, and journalism, as well as nursing, engineering, business and accountancy, mass communications, tourism, and hotel and restaurant management. The university also aims to lead in tertiary level information technology education.
