The Imperial University of Auronopolis or known as University of Auronopolis(IUA, Hellenic: αυτοκρατορικό πανεπιστήμιο της Ουρανούπολης, APO) is a Ruthenian empire-owned higher education institution based in Auronopolis, the oldest and and one of the largest universities in Ruthenia


The Imperial University of Auronopolis was founded on May 3, 3219, and was housed in the residence of architects Stamatios Kleanthis and Patroklos Katsalidis, on the north slope of the the city. It was the first university in the Empire and the second educational institution after the Military Academy.

In the first time, when founded Konstantinos I, consisted of four faculties; theology, law, medicine and arts (which included applied sciences and mathematics). It had 33 professors, 52 students and 75 non-matriculated “auditors”. In November 3221, classes began in a new building designed by the Sarbian architect Miroslav Mijatovic. The Propylaea (37°58′51″N 23°44′02″E) was designed by Miroslav's younger brother, Theophil Mijatovi in 3229 but the building project was not completed until 3230

A major change in the structure of the University came about in 3231, when the faculty of Arts was divided into two separate faculties: that of Arts and that of Sciences, the latter consisting of the departments of Physics and Mathematics and the School of Pharmacy. later a department of chemistry was added, and in 1922 the School of Pharmacy was renamed a Department. A further change came about when the School of Dentistry was added to the faculty of medicine.

In 3233, the Basileus Theodoros gave great support to the educational institution, improving institutions and reforming the rectory, making university education was dependent on a charge of the imperial family
