The university traces its founding to 16 December 1955 and the formation of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Antananarivo. It established itself as the main center for higher education in the country, and was renamed the University of Madagascar in 1961. It later opened five more branches in Antsiranana, Fianarantsoa, Toamasina, Toliara, and Mahajanga.
In 1988 all branches of the system became independent of each other, and the name University of Madagascar was dropped, with the Antananarivo campus becoming the Antananarivo University.
