Founded in 1849, Universitas Indonesia (UI) has developed into a modern and multicultural academic environment, and is one of the top ranked universities in Asia.

UI aims to enhance its activities in research, development and knowledge diffusion to the highest level within the regional and global area. Being one of the reputable research universities, UI is committed to endorse academic invention and research activities through various scientific programs such as in natural sciences, social sciences, engineering, or humanities.

Indonesia as a nation is experiencing changes in response to competition in the globalizing world and Universitas Indonesia acknowledges that its role and contribution to change in the local and global levels will be determined by the university’s activities within society. In order to provide significant contribution to the nation and to the world, Universitas Indonesia sets its vision to be a world class research university.

UI has two campuses: the first one is in the central business area at Salemba, Jakarta and the second one is in the green environment of Depok, West Java. The Depok campus is set in 320 hectares of carefully maintained tropical greenery, half of which is set aside as an ecological laboratory and conservation area. Twenty five percent of the area is used for academic, research and student activities, while the remaining seventy five percent is used for forestation. UI also provides a 20 km long bicycle path. Hence, UI is a green campus which offers quality knowledge transfers and research activities for all UI’s academic community.
