The Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life Sciences is a university in Wrocław, Poland.

Its heritage is deeply rooted in the traditions of two institutions founded in Lviv: the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry of Lviv Polytechnic in Dublany and the Veterinary School of Medicine, founded in 1881. The post-war chapter in the history of the Agricultural University of Wrocław was opened in the autumn of 1945, when the Faculty of Agriculture and the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine were founded at the combined University and Polytechnic, the only institution of higher education in Wrocław at that time. In 1951 these two faculties were incorporated in the newly opened Higher School of Agriculture renamed the Agricultural University of Wrocław in 1971 and the Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life Sciences in 2006.
