North University Centre (Romanian: Centrul Universitar Nord din Baia Mare) is the campus of Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, in Baia Mare, Romania. The school traces its origins to the North University (Romanian: Universitatea de Nord din Baia Mare (UNMB)), a former public university founded in 1974, under the name of Higher Education Institute (in 1991, changed into Baia Mare University, and from 1996, North University).

In 2011, the UNBM Senate voted to affiliate with the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca. The fusion process ended with the 2012 academic elections.


The campus keeps the structure of the former university with four faculties:

  • Faculty of Engineering
  • Faculty of Mineral Resources and Environment
  • Faculty of Letters
  • Faculty of Science
