Loading... This is the oldest University in Sri Lanka located in urban centre of Colombo.

Deriving its heritage from the oldest higher educational institution in Sri Lanka, i.e., the
University College, the University of Colombo is a sprawling complex located in the heart of the
capital city of Colombo, Sri Lanka. In keeping with its motto “Buddhi Sarvathra Bhrajate”,
Sanskrit for “Wisdom Enlightens”, the University of Colombo strives to maintain academic
excellence in all areas of study. The University of Colombo has 7 Faculties with 42 Academic
Departments, a Campus, a School, 6 Institutes and several Centres and Units. Many
undergraduate and postgraduate study courses in the fields of Arts, Science, Medicine,
Management, Finance, Law, Education, IT, Aesthetic Studies, Molecular Biology, etc. are
conducted by the University. The University also offers several other services, such as library
services, career guidance, and services for differently-abled students. The Faculty of Law, the
one and only law faculty in the country expanded to 3 Departments in 2009 after its 42 years of

Student life is enhanced by a plethora of extra-curricular activities offered on campus. The
beautiful playground and the modern gymnasium offer sportsmen and women the opportunity
to exploit and develop their abilities to the fullest. The New Arts Theatre is often the arena for
spotlighting the dramatic and musical talents of our student population.

Today, the University of Colombo with a proud history of over 115 years continues in its
endeavour to meet the challenge of maintaining its position as a “Metropolitan University,
Modern and International in Outlook and Character”. The location of the University affords the
student population all the advantages of a “Metropolitan University”, with easy access to
international information/resource centres, libraries, theatres, sports complexes etc. Its central
location within the City of Colombo provides easy access to a wide range of cultural,
