The University was founded on 27 February, 1903 by Father Joseph Ma Xiangbo S.J. (1840-1939) and French Jesuits. Ma Xiangbo left Aurora in 1905 to establish Fudan University, and Aurora was run by French Jesuits until the coming of Communist Revolution. From 1908 onwards it was located in Shanghai's French Concession.
In 1952, Aurora University merged into East China Normal University and Fudan University, while the chemistry department was absorbed by the newly founded East China Institute of Chemical Technology and the Medical School became part of the Shanghai Second Medical College.
