Tulum, Q.R. — Six months after the start of construction, the mayor of Tulum provided an update on the municipality’s new university. On Wednesday, Mayor Marciano Dzul Caamal reported on the building’s progress.
He said that the first and second levels of the Technological University of Tulum are well under way. Once complete, the university will be able to handle 260 students. It is being constructed on a 10-hectare plot of donated land.
It is the second attempt at building the university since the first land donation fell through in mid-2022.
Last year, Caamal announced a second land donation, which is where the university is currently being constructed since September of 2022. Caamal has said in the past that the new university will provide Tulum students with a place to study near their homes.
The Universidad Tecnológica de Tulum will cost around 29 million peso to build.
On social media, Mayor Marciano Dzul Caamal posted “This is how the first public university for the young people of Tulum is advancing! With the determined support of our Governor Mara Lezama and the Government of Quintana Roo, the Technological University of Tulum has made significant progress on land donated by the H. Tulum City Hall. Thank you Governor! Thank you Secretary of Education, Carlos Gorocica Moreno! An image says more than a thousand words. A commitment is fulfilled.”
