Hamdard University was established on October 9, 1991, by a provisional act of the Sindh Assembly. The founding chancellor, Hakim Said, had been long advocating for the establishment of private-sector higher education learning institutions. He received the university's charter from then-President Ghulam Ishaq Khan in a solemn ceremony. The university is named after Said's philanthropy and education lobby organisation, the Hamdard Foundation.
Stretching over an area of 350 acres, Madinat al-Hikmah includes, in addition to the establishments of the university, Hamdard Garden, sports stadium, Hamdard Public School and college, operating as its earliest institutions, imparting education from primary to higher secondary level and Bait al-Hikmah library. The Institute of Education & Social Sciences (HIESS) and College of Eastern Medicine (HACEM) were among the earliest institutions established. The other institutions that appeared in the later stages include Hamdard College of Medicine & Dentistry (HCM&D), Hamdard Institute of Management Sciences (HIMS), Hamdard Institute of Engineering Technology (HIET), Faculty of Engineering Sciences and Technology (FEST), Usman Institute of Technology (UIT), Hafiz Mohammad Ilyas Institute of Pharmacology & Herbal Sciences, Hamdard School of Law (HSL), Hamdard Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (HIPS), Bait al-Hikmah Institute of Research and Regional CISCO Networking Academy.
In 1996 the first city campus of the university was established at Adamjee Nagar. Later on, another city campus operating weekend and evening programs was started in PECHS, Karachi. The number of campuses increased with the establishment of Islamabad and Faisalabad campuses in 1998 and 2000 respectively. During the period, five Lahore-, Islamabad- and Karachi-based organisations, imparting professional education became affiliated with the university.
Hamdard University has six major campuses in three main cities of Pakistan: thee in Karachi (the financial hub of Pakistan); two in Islamabad – the capital city (one of the Islamabad campuses is under construction); and one in Faisalabad.
Out of the three campuses in Karachi, the one at Northern Bypass is the oldest and the largest. It is known as the Main Campus. The others are in downtown Karachi and are known as the City Campuses.
The main campus of Hamdard University is in the vicinity of the Sindh—Balochistan border, 28 km from the commercial center of Karachi, on the main highway leading to Murad Khan Dam (Bund), against the backdrop of over 350 acres of Madinat al-Hikmah: the city of Education, Science and Culture.
The Main Campus houses institutes and faculties which include Hamdard Institute of Information Technology, Hamdard Institute of Management Sciences, Faculty of Eastern Medicine, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, Faculty of Environmental Sciences, Faculty of Humanities, Faculty of pharmacy and Social Sciences.
There are two major City Campuses, in addition to the Main Campus, in Karachi:

- City Campus II (CC-II) – 164-G, Block 3, off Khalid Bin Waleed Road, PECHS, Karachi ( )
CC-I is basically an extension for the Hamdard Institute of Management Sciences (HIMS) and CC-II is the campus of Hamdard Institute of Engineering Technology (HIET), and is used to offer training courses, certifications and diplomas. It houses the Graduate School of Engineering Sciences and Information Technology and Hamdard School of Law. A summer semester, for the students who want to improve their grades or apply for the courses which they previously failed to complete/pass, is offered at CC-II during July–September, every year.
The main Islamabad campus was constructed in 2000. It is in the Blue Area near China Chowk, Islamabad. The Islamabad Campus houses three institutes which offer disciplines in Engineering, IT, Management Sciences and Pharmaceutical Sciences. These institutes include Hamdard Institute of Information Technology, Hamdard Institute of Management Sciences and Hamdard Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences.
