#‎USTPapalVisit‬ : General Advisory for the Visit of Pope Francis to UST


University of Santo Tomas (UST) gates will open at 4 am on January 18, 2015.

The public is given designated areas in the campus. They can enter the university through UST gates 10 and 11, which are both along Dapitan street at the back entrance to the university.

The 24,000 delegates of the youth encounter can enter the university through gates 5 and 6, which are both along España boulevard near the UST football field.

Both entry points for the youth participants are at left side of the UST main entrance when facing the gate.

The youth delegates are from the Archdiocesan Commissions on the Youth, the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines Episcopal Commission on the Youth, the Catholic Educational Association of the Philippines (CEAP), member-schools of the Association of Catholic Universities of the Philippines, and the 2nd Philippine Conference on New Evangelization.

Members of the Thomasian community can pass through gates 1, 2, 3 and 14, which includes the rest of the gates along España boulevard and the sole entrance along Lacson street.

Meanwhile, UST gates 8, 9 and 12 are typically closed – even on a regular school day.
