The history of Orenburg State University dates back to 1955 when the evening department of Kuibyshev Industrial Institute was opened. Since 1996 the education institution has been operating as a classical multi-profile university.

Today, over 270 doctors of sciences and 1,500 PhDs are involved in the teaching activities, with up to 38,000 students being enrolled in the university.
