National University of St Agustin of Arequipa, known locally as Universidad Nacional de San Agustín de Arequipa (UNSA) is a state-owned university in Arequipa, Peru. It is the oldest local state university in Arequipa, and has been in continuous operation since its founding on November 11, 1828.
The university is currently in a process of reform, due to the massive and generalized scandals of corruption involving both authorities and teachers. Strikes are not uncommon, both by teachers (for salary issues) and by students.
Arequipa's principal stadium — one of the largest in Peru, Estadio de la UNSA — was built and directed by this university.
