The University of Malta - Gozo Campus (formerly known as the University of Malta Gozo Centre) was set up in 1992 with the aim of assisting in the logistical aspects of degree and diploma courses which are from time to time offered in Gozo by the University of Malta. The Campus also offers its own short term courses and caters for the needs of Gozitan students following courses in Malta and in Gozo. The Campus organises social and cultural activities for the general public.
The building where the Campus is housed was originally constructed in the mid 19th Century. It was transformed into a University establishment – retaining its original structure – with the support of the Ministry for Gozo and inaugurated as a University Centre by the Prime Minister in May 1996.
A historic account of the UGC premises is given in these two publications:
