José Rizal University (JRU) is a non-sectarian, non-stock private educational institution. It is located at Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong City, Philippines.



The college was founded by Don Vicente Fabella (the first Filipino Certified Public Accountant) as Far Eastern CollegeSchool of Accounts, Commerce and Finance in 1919 and was renamed José Rizal College (JRC) in 1922 in honor of the Filipino national hero, Dr. José Rizal.

The University was first located in Quiapo, Manila. It has continuously provided educational services since 1919 except during the Japanese Occupation on the Philippines in World War II. It reopened at the end of the war, and in 1950, transferred to Shaw Boulevard in Mandaluyong when the town was under Rizal province.

JRC was granted university status on October 2, 2000. It has also been granted deregulated status by the Commission on Higher Education (Philippines).

Jose Rizal University joined the National Collegiate Athletic Association in 1927. The varsity team are the José Rizal Heavy Bombers.
