"Estudiantes Football Club" was founded on 5 May 1905, by football enthusiasts of the city of Paraná, Entre Ríos Province. By 1921 the club had acquired land in the city's Parque Urquiza and began building football pitches, as well as tennis courts there.
Following a controversial city hall decision, the club briefly lost hold of their installations but re-acquired them in 1929. From then on the club would start to develop teams in many sports, adding tennis and athletics to their already existing football teams, thus becoming a multi-sports club.
After football became professional in 1931, the club decided to abandon the practise of the sport to keep its amateur principles active, therefore Estudiantes encouraged the addition of other activities such as rugby union and basketball. The club also changed its name to "Club Atlético Estudiantes". Estudiantes also added swimming and waterpolo after the construction of a swimming pool in 1937.
In 1953 however, the club would go into administration and briefly disbanded, with only the rugby and basketball teams surviving. By 1955, CAE was reborn and all teams started practicing again.
Many new sports, such as volleyball or field hockey, would appear at the club in the following decades to expand the offer of activities for the members.
