- Bustos Campus (BulSU Bustos) is the largest satellite campus in the university. It was established in 1976. In the past twenty five years, BSUB has evolved from its focus on two year vocational and technical courses to its current emphasis on preparing students for careers in education and industrial technology. The curriculum also includes introductory classes in engineering for those students planning to transfer to the main campus. In keeping with the university's vision and mission, BSUB has become one of the higher education institutions in Bulacan on a par with leading learning institutions in the region.

From the year it was founded, the campus grew physically from sharing a roof with the Bustos Elementary school to a five-room former public market building to the imposing campus of today. The school grew as well from offering vocational technical courses and trade secondary school curriculum and two-year technical education courses, to the four year and five-year degree programs that it now offers. The campus boasts of its upgraded and revitalized curriculum.
