Stockholm University was granted university status in 1960, making it the fourth oldest Swedish university. As with other public universities in Sweden, Stockholm University’s mission includes teaching and research anchored in society at large
The initiative for the formation of Stockholm University was taken by the Stockholm City Council. The process was completed after a decision in December 1865 regarding the establishment of a fund and a committee to “establish a higher education institution in the capital”. The nine members of the Committee were respected and prominent citizens whose work had helped the evolution of science and society

The next important step was taken in October 1869, when the Stockholm University College Association was established. Several members of the committee became members of the association – including Professor Pehr Henrik Malmsten. The association’s mission was to establish a college in Stockholm and would “not be dissolved until the college came into being and its future could be considered secure.” The memorandum of the Stockholm University College was adopted in May 1877, and in the autumn semester of the following year, actual operations began.
