Universidad Laboral - Ciudad de la Cultura

The Faculty of Commerce, Tourism and Social Sciences Jovellanos (Universidad de Oviedo at Gijón), is located at the Universidad Laboral of Gijon on the outskirts of the city. Its construction began in 1946 under the direction of Luis Moya Blanco and finished in 1956.

 Founded initially with the aim of welcoming those orphans of parents victims of accidents in mining, it was projected  with many dependencies for the students: residence, workshops, classrooms, sports facilities ... Its construction was followed by the opening of many others Universidades Laborales for vocational education all around Spain.

 After a period of use, the building was practically abandoned in the Eighties until the next century, undergoing a major refurbishment and recovering former functions: theater, classroom, workshops ... Today is the Headquarters of the University of Oviedo at Gijón, the Conservatory of Music, the School of Dramatic Art or a museum called City of Culture which offers a wide variety of cultural activities.
