We report optical photometry of Type Ia SN ASASSN-16gq/AT2016cym (ATel #9199, ATel #9219) on 2016-07-11 (UT) gathered with the OAUNI 51cm telescope at Huancayo Observatory, Peru. CCD imaging was performed with seeing ~1.7" and airmass = 1.3. Our measurements yielded:

  
Date (UT)	 | filter | IT             | mag  
2016-07-11.085   | V	  | 1200s (60x20s) | 17.94 +/- 0.06 
2016-07-11.106   | R	  | 0760s (38x20s) | 17.84 +/- 0.04 

Field stars were used for the zero point calibration. Caution must be taken for contamination of edge-on Sc host galaxy (ESO 446-G023). Following FLWO/FAST classification (ATel #9219), our measurements are ~17 days after maximum. The OAUNI project is supported by UNI, TWAS, IGP and Cienciactiva (Convenio 102-2015 Fondecyt).
