Plymouth University started out as a School of Navigation in 1862 and the year 2012 marked our 150th anniversary. This heritage is our foundation and we continue to grow and develop. Today we are a leading university, with a world class reputation - a university on the ascendancy.
We celebrated our special anniversary with events and activities open to staff, students, partners and our community. More than 50,000 people celebrated with us!
We demonstrated how Plymouth University is making a difference and how what we do here matters. We glanced back but leapt forward!
Our 150th anniversary demonstrated how our approach to partnership creates a lasting legacy for our community. View our 150th legacy.
