University Type and Campus :
Örebro University (Swedish: Örebro universitet) is a state university in Örebro, Sweden.
University-level education in Örebro started in the 1960s, when Uppsala University started to offer some courses in Örebro. On the basis of these activities, an independent högskola (university college) was created in 1977 under the name Högskolan i Örebro (Örebro University College). This university college also incorporated three other existing educational institutions in Örebro: the teaching seminar, the sports college (founded in 1966) and the social work college (founded 1967). Örebro University College was granted the privileges of a university by the Government of Sweden in 1999, becoming the 12th university in Sweden.
