History

Keijō Imperial University was founded in 1924 as the sixth Imperial University of Japan during the period of Japanese rule, followed by Nagoya University and Osaka University in 1931 and 1939 respectively. While the other Imperial Universities located in Japan were run by Ministry of Education , Science and Culture, Keijō Imperial University was run by Governor-General of Korea.

After the end of World War II Keijō Imperial University was renamed to "Kyŏngsŏng University" (Hangul: 경성대학; Hanja: 京城大學; RR: Gyeongseong Daehak; MR: Kyŏngsŏng Taehak) and became the first university of post-war Korea.

Kyŏngsŏng University was closed on August 22, 1946, by US Military Ordinance No. 102. It was later merged with 9 other colleges into Seoul National University.
