Motivated by the urgency of need to serve the youth of growing Taguig City, the Local Government Administration came up with Ordinance No. 29 Series of 2004 ” An Ordinance Establishing the Pamantasan ng Taguig and Appropriating Funds Thereof.” This was also one of the offshoots of the provisions of the Local Government Code.
Pamantasan ng Taguig was renamed Taguig City University pursuant to City Ordinance No.13, Series of 2009.
Building TCU was not laid on a golden platter, it has gone through various forms of birth pangs top billed by the very basic need to have enough school buildings. for two (2) years, despite its birthing courage, the pipe dream hardly manifested its physical eloquence, but in S.Y.2006-2007, its realization swiftly took off. the Organization of the University and construction of the TCU main building commenced. Meanwhile, undergraduate classes were held in various High Schools and Elementary campuses, all in Taguig lent to the growing management of TCU. In 2006, General Ricardo Papa Sr. Memorial High School offered some rooms fro free. In 2007, rooms expanded to Taguig Elementary School, Sta. Ana-District 1 and Em’s Elementary School, Signal Village-District 2. In 2008-2009 additional undergraduate classes were held in annex school of General Ricardo Papa Sr. Memorial High School at Brgy. Ususan and Signal Village Elementary School (Annex) in same place.
Lack of classrooms did not also deter the holding of Graduate School classes. The graduate program in Master of Arts in Teaching major in Mathematics, Filipino, English and Social Sciences were lumped together as a common major. It paved the way to the development of the Master of Arts in Educational Management, while holding classes comfortably in a secluded and secured room, 2nd floor of Sunshine Mall Taguig.
School Year 2009-2010 reflected the metamorphosis of youthful Taguig City University, because in June of the aforementioned School Year, all classes from undergraduate to graduate programs started to be held at the new main building of TCU, then the rest became part of the history.

The organization of the University and construction of the TCU main building were the highlights of this period.

It was during his term when the construction of the main building was completed, likewise curricular offerings were expanded. Year 2010 to early part of 2011, TCU was under the reigns of Bro.
