Education and research started in Rostock even 73 years before Columbus discovered America as the university was founded already in 1419. A lot has changed in the meantime. Such as the technical faculty founded in 1951 - the first one ever established at a classical university. Plenty of new, modern buildings, as the completely new campus for natural sciences in the district Suedstadt, represent the innovative strength and modernity of our university. In 2011 about 15,000 students study at Rostock's university.

The major scientific departments – business sciences, humanities, engineering sciences, law, medicine, natural sciences and theology – are represented both in research and education at the University of Rostock.
