On July 27, an amendment to the decree marked the initiation of the establishment of various faculties at the university, including the Faculty of Literature, Language, Art, and the Humanities, the Faculty of Medicine, the Faculty of Science, and the Faculty of Economical Sciences.

Approximately ten weeks later, on October 6, the inaugural course of the Faculty of Literature, Language, Art, and the Humanities was launched at Sant Cugat del Vallès Monastery. Concurrently, in the same month, the Faculty of Medicine was established at the Hospital de Sant Pau in Barcelona.

In 1969, a pivotal agreement was executed for the acquisition of the land that currently serves as the university campus.
