Every university is a child of the place where it originated and a child of the time from which it grew. Both did not feel very good about a university in Innsbruck, so Innsbruck is the youngest of the old universities in Austria today. Emperor Leopold I had by the resolution of 15 October 1669 a mark-up of 12 cruisers on every salt sold from the Saline Hall in Tyrol salt, in order to cover the expected income with the costs of reestablishment. As late as 1669, the Faculty of Arts was opened, followed by the Theological and Juridical Courses in 1671, the Faculty of Medicine in 1673 and the doctoral degree for all faculties, so that this year, as the date of the oldest seal of the university on the stamp shows, the founding may be regarded as completed , After a historically conditioned ups and downs in the history of the university, the path has steadily increased over the centuries. The last important step was taken by the University of Innsbruck with the establishment of the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Architecture, which began operation in the academic year 1969/70. Finally, a number that perhaps best characterizes growth: Studied here in 1870/71 571 listeners, it was 1966/67 already 6173.
