In 1526 a college was founded in Granada by Holy Roman Emperor Charles V for the teaching of logic, philosophy, theology and canon law. On 14 July 1531, the establishment of a studium generale with the faculties of theology, arts and canon law was granted by a papal bull by Clement VII, marking the birth hour of the university. This explains its motto "Universitas Granatensis 1531" and his official seal, based in its founder coat of arms with representations of the imperial double-headed eagle and Spanish kingdoms.

The rectorate of the university of Granada is situated in the Royal Hospital of Granada, inaugurated in 1526 as well during the reign of Holy Roman Emperor Charles V and listed nowadays as BIC in the Spanish heritage classification.

Recent major new facilities include the Granada Health Science Technological Park, housing infrastructures and facilities devoted to its four main uses: teaching (98,000 m2), health care (120,000 m2), and research and business development (170,000 m2), with the participation of Spanish CSIC institution.
