In 1898, rather than continuing to rent the house where it was located, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile bought the building of the Unión Central located at 1038 Agustinas.  This was a very important step for the University´s development.  That same year, the University also took an important step to establish its autonomy: on November 7, the Comisión de Instrucción Pública (Committee of Public Education) allowed UC Law academics to form part of the Examination Committee for Law Exams.  Until that year, the Universidad de Chile was the only institution allowed to certify annual and degree exams.
