The University of A Coruña (Galician: Universidade da Coruña) is a public university located in the city of A Coruña, Galicia. Established in 1989, university departments are divided between two primary campuses in A Coruña and nearby Ferrol. The A Coruña campus is spread over three suburbs on the outskirts of A Coruña: Elviña and Zapateira (near the site of the Battle of Elviña) and Oza (near the As Xubias zone).
In the early 1960s, the School of Naval and Industrial Engineers of Ferrol was also established as a degree-granting institution by a Ministerial Order. Until 1990 the school was directly dependent on the Ministry of Education in Madrid. In 1990 the school was amalgamated with the University of A Coruña.
