Venue Information

The Bayanihan Center was initially created to address the need of United Laboratories (Unilab) for a larger and more modern events venue within company premises; a facility that will be able to accommodate the growing number of executives, employees, and clients.

The Center became the choice venue of meetings and events conducted by most of its internal clients, the Unilab business units. By 2010, the Bayanihan Center started accepting events and meeting schedules from external clients.
With the growing prospects of more events and meetings that can be served by the facility, the Bayanihan Annex was constructed in 2010. In July 2011, the Bayanihan Annex was launched to complement the operations of the main Bayanihan Center.

Hosting Organization

The Ateneo de Manila University is one of the world’s most exciting communities of leaders and scholars. Nearly 150 years after the Jesuits returned to the Philippines in 1859, the Ateneo has grown into a major Jesuit university whose schools include a college, graduate school, four professional schools, three basic education departments, and an array of research and development centers.

Its main campus in Loyola Heights, Quezon City, Metro Manila houses the University’s college and graduate, and basic education units, as well as numerous research centers and extension units.The Ateneo Professional Schools Campus in Makati City, houses the University’s professional schools of business, law, and information technology. A third campus in Ortigas Center, Pasig City houses the new professional school of medicine and public health.

The motto of the Ateneo de Manila University is Lux-in-Domino, “Light in the Lord.” These words from the letter of St. Paul to the Ephesians call us to “live as children of light, for light produces every kind of goodness, righteousness, and truth.” The Ateneo de Manila is more than an institution of higher learning. The Ateneo commitment is to become light in the world, seeking the truth to illuminate and to serve. This spirit lives in every aspect of our work as a Jesuit and Philippine university.
