The Federal University of Mato Grosso do Sul (Portuguese: Universidade Federal de Mato Grosso do Sul), or UFMS, is a public university located in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul in Brazil.
The university was founded on July 4, 1979, after the state of Mato Grosso was split and the southern part became Mato Grosso do Sul.
The university has seven campuses, located in Campo Grande, Aquidauana, Corumbá, Coxim, Paranaíba and Três Lagoas. And a new campus has been added in Chapadão do Sul
The university has been criticized for owning Morenão, a soccer stadium used by professional teams. Critics say that the purchase of the stadium was a wrong use of governmental funds. However, part of Morenão is used for academic research.
