The University of Sunderland is a university located in Sunderland in the North East of England.
The university's roots can be traced back to 1901, when Sunderland Technical College was established as a municipal training college on Green Terrace (the site of the former Galen Building). It was the first to offer sandwich courses.
Sunderland Polytechnic was established on 26th January 1969, incorporating the Technical College, the School of Art (which was also established in 1901) and the Sunderland Teacher Training College (established in 1908).
In 1992, the Polytechnic gained university status.
