Kim Il Sung University

Kim Il-sung University, founded on 1 October 1946, is the first university built in North Korea. It is located on a 37-acre campus in Pyongyang, the nation's capital. Along with the main academic buildings, the campus contains 10 separate offices, 50 laboratories, libraries, museums, a printing press, an R&D centre dormitories and a hospital. During the Korean War the university was located at Baeksong-ri under Mt. Jamo in Suncheon-gun, which was far from the centre of the city. But by late 1955, the reconstruction of the main building on the Pyongyang campus was in progress and shortly on the university moved back to Pyongyang centre.
