The University of Panama (UP) is planning to spend $98 million to build campuses in San Miguelito and Clayton.

According to a statement of objections published on Panamacompra, the school will build campuses near Milla 8 in San Miguelito and Chivo Chivo in Calyton.

UP Secretary General Miguel Angel Candanedo said the construction will be financed from the sale of land for $109 million that was owned by the school near Tocumen International Airport. That land was sold during the administration of former President Ricardo Martinelli.

Candanedo said the San Miguelito campus will be operated in a similar manner to the regional centers of the university in the interior of the country. The Clayton campus will house the faculties of business administration and accounting, as well as a language center.

On the new medical school, Candanedo said that the school is still waiting for Social Security to decide if it will be part of the City Hospital Complex or if the university will have to build its own facility.

The school will start accepting bids for the project Feb. 24 and will open them March 25. The delivery time for both campuses is 22 months.
