Program Description:

University of Iceland  
Iceland

Founded in 1911, the University of Iceland has grown steadily from a small civil servants' school to a modern comprehensive university, providing instruction for about 14,000 students in twenty five faculties. Teaching and research is conducted within social sciences, humanities, medicine, natural sciences, engineering and teacher education. It has a campus concentrated around Suðurgata street in central Reykjavík, with additional facilities located in nearby areas as well as in the countryside.
 
In 1933, the University received a special licence from the government to operate a cash-prize lottery called Happdrætti Háskólans. The University Lottery, which started in 1934, remains a major source of funding for the construction of new university buildings. In 1940, the University moved into the main building, designed by Icelandic state architect Guðjón Samúelsson. The main building forms the core of the campus on Suðurgata, where most of the principal buildings of the University are located today.

For its first 29 years the University was housed in the Icelandic Parliament building, Alþingishúsið, in central Reykjavík.
