Azcapotzalco


Explanation:
Azcapotzalco is the name of a district or "delegación" of Mexico D.F., so you wouldn't translate it. The sentence in question would translate to something like "...corresponding studies in the Azcapotzalco "unit" (or "branch" or "campus". Could it be "universidad" instead of "unidad", i.e. the University of Azcapotzalco?) I've included a link with information on the area.

Azcapotzalco


Explanation:
Azcapotzalco is the name of a delegation in Mexico City which is located in its Northern part, (Actually, I live in Azcapotzalco :)
Azcapotzalco is not an Spanish word, but a Nahuatl one (Nahuatl is a native Mexican language spoken by ancient civilizations before the Spanish Conquer) Nahuatl is still spoken by a few people as their native language and it is also taught in some language schools, however it's not a very useful language.
The Nahuatl word Azcapotzalco DOES have a meaning which is "the ant zone" or "the zone of the ants" but people don't say "I live in the zone of the ants" :) you will always hear them say "I live in Azcapotzalco".
Hope this helps.
