  • In 1508, the first Ordinances were passed to govern the Estudi General of Barcelona founded in 1450.  
  • In 1536, construction began on a new building for the institution at the top of the Rambla.
  • In 1559, the school brought all existing faculties together in one location.
  • At that time, the institution entered a period of difficulty and decline, marked by censorship of publications, bans on foreign contact, insufficient resources, and student conflict and violence.
