It started with only elementary and secondary education in 1947. Classes were then held in a portion of the convent as well as in classrooms housed in an old building along Magallanes St. was built. In an unprecedent spirit of expansion, the year 1965 witnessed the tearing down of the time-honored Recoletos Church and was demolished after thorough and emotionally-changed deliberations as the conservatives of the church fought for its preservation. [1]

However, tradition had give way to progress. In 1968, the six-storey edifice was built along P. Lopez St. was erected to accommodate more students and expand the school's facilities and instructional resources. Far and wide, the years after 1970 and onward found the University of San Jose - Recoletos (then CSJ-R) in a period of consistent growth and development. [1]

In 1980, CSJ-R bought a new site in Basak-Pardo, Cebu City, then built the new building for the grade and high schools, the Recoletos Coliseum, Open Gymnasium and the Pope Paul II Retreat House. In 1996, the Talavera House of Prayer was built in the scenic hills of Quiot, Cebu City. [1]

On September 21, 1984, then CSJ-R attained the UNIVERSITY STATUS. Spanning years of accreditation and re-accreditation, USJ-R, Level 3, PAASCU, was granted AUTONOMOUS STATUS by CHED in 2001. [1]

In 2003, the College of Information, Computer and Communications Technology was created. The Expanded Tertiary Education Equivalency and Accreditation Program (ETEEAP) followed in the same year. On April 1, 2004, the Vertical Alignment of the undergraduate and graduate schools took effect which established five graduate schools: Graduate School of Business and Management, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Graduate School of Information Technology and Computer Studies, Graduate School of Education and Graduate School of Engineering.

The university's pioneering nursing students will graduate this coming 2008 and the university's highly-expecting much and will be looking forward on them. [1]

Part of USJ-R’s campaign to provide good education is the provision of infrastructures and facilities to aid learning. Thus the rise of many school buildings like the Nursing Skills Laboratory, the St. Ezekiel Moreno Building, the International Language Center, the Recoletos Law Center, and the LET and CPA Review Centers. [1]

Recently, the new St. Ezekiel Moreno Building was established in the Basak Campus exclusive for the College of Information, Computer and Communications Technology (CICCT) and the College of Education (COE). [1]
