Yogyakarta State University (Indonesian: Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta, abbreviated as UNY) is a state university established in Yogyakarta, Indonesia in 1964.


Yogyakarta State University [2](formerly IKIP Yogyakarta or Yogyakarta Institute of Teacher Education and Educational Sciences) was founded on May 21, 1964. IKIP Yogyakarta was a merger of two educational institutions: the Faculty of Pedagogy of Gadjah Mada University and the Institute of Teacher Education. They offered study programs of education sciences and teacher education. The merger was mandated by the Presidential Decree of the Republic of Indonesia, Number I/1963.

On August 4, 1999, the President of the Republic of Indonesia, by Presidential Decree No. 93/1999, officially declared that IKIP Yogyakarta was converted into Yogyakarta State University (abbreviated as YSU) with a wider mandate. This university is also legitimate to offer non-education study programs. The conversion of IKIP Yogyakarta into a university was based on some considerations. One of them is the observation that the organizational structure of an educational institution was insufficient to support scientific development and that the number of graduates of IKIP Yogyakarta who entered non-teaching fields also increased. In carrying out the wider mandate, YSU initially offered 12 non-education study programs at the bachelor level and three-year undergraduate diploma levels in the following faculties: the Faculty of Languages and Arts Education, the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences Education, and the Faculty of Engineering and Vocational Education. The non-education study programs include those offered in the Faculty of Sport Sciences and the Faculty of Economics.

To meet societal demands, in 2011 the Faculty of Social Sciences and Economics was divided into two separate faculties: the Faculty of Social Sciences and the Faculty of Economics. This was mandated through the Ministerial Decree No. 23/2011 about the Organization and Governance of YSU signed on 22 June 2011. YSU then has seven faculties.

As has been mentioned above, IKIP Yogyakarta was converted into YSU on August 4, 1999. However, the anniversary of IKIP Yogyakarta remains YSU’s anniversary, i.e., May 21.


There are seven faculties:

  • Faculty of Education Sciences [3]
  • Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences [4]
  • Faculty of Language and Arts


  • Faculty of Engineering [6]
  • Faculty of Social Science [7]
  • Faculty of Sport Science [8]
  • Faculty of Economics [9]
