Located at Universitetsholmen in the centre of the city, the university has played an important role in the transformation of Malmö from an industrial town to a centre of learning. A large part of the campus was constructed on grounds which, up to the mid-1980s, belonged to the Kockums shipyard, which had been a key element of naval-industrial Malmö. Founded as a university college (“högskola”) in 1998, the Swedish minister for higher education and research conferred full university status on January 1, 2018.
