UB's History

From its beginnings, the University has granted educational access to those who otherwise might be denied the opportunity: working adults, first-generation college students and those who require the flexibility not found in traditional college settings.


    • 1925: The University of Baltimore was founded as a private night School of Law and College of Business Administration.
    • 1937: A junior college was added.
    • 1975: The University became a public institution under the Board of Trustees of State Universities and Colleges, shifting its structure to an upper-division undergraduate, master's-level and professional institution.
    • 1988: UB joined the University of Maryland System (now known as the University System of Maryland).
    • 2007: UB returned to four-year undergraduate education as part of the state's plan for higher education, in response to the increased demand for accessible, high-quality public education.
