During the Croat-Bosniak War in May 1993, the University was renamed as Sveučilište u Mostaru (using the Croatian term for University), and the Croatian language was adopted as official language of the University. Muslim professors left the University and established a new university with the old name - the University Džemal Bijedić of Mostar.

From the students' standard of facilities, instead of the earlier modern dorm capacity 550 beds with an array of supporting facilities and opportunities to prepare 1200 meals a day, the students today at area campuses are available to two renovated pavilion, which are a function of the dorm-capacity of 60 beds, space for classroom and a kitchen.

With the introduction of new forms of organization and integration, and changes in management, the university will meet the demands for harmonization of higher education and be able to engage as an equal partner in the international university network.[8]
