The university was founded in 1856. Its main building was inaugurated in 1858. The Royal Veterinarian School moved from Sankt Annæ Gade into the main building after its inauguration.
On January 1st, 2007, the Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University was merged into the University of Copenhagen and was renamed as the Faculty of Life Sciences. This was later split up, with the veterinary part merging into the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences and the rest merging into the Faculty of Science.
The original three-winged main building (with the pergola) on Bülowsvej 17 was built between 1856 and 1858 and was designed by Gottlieb Bindesbøll. He also designed two detached wings that were built on Grønnegårdsvej. In 1895, the main building was expanded with a fourth wing (designed by Johannes Emil Gnudtzmann) and a central courtyard.
As of January 2007, the area is part of the University of Copenhagen's Frederiksberg Campus.
