USM was founded in 1969 in Malaysia. It was then called University Pulau Pinang. It used to operate at the Malayan Teachers' Training College and moved to Minden in 1971. D.S. Ramanathan had the idea of a university in Penang. His idea had started to take shape when he was appointed the Chairman of the Penang University Project committee. Prime Minister Y.T.M. Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj laid the stone of foundation on August 7, 1967.

USM mainly has three campuses. They are known as the Engineering Campus, Health Campus, and the Main Campus. The Main Campus is named after a German city (Minden) as it was built on the territory formerly known as the British Minden Barracks. The Health campus is situated at Kubang Kerian in Kelantan. This campus was initially known as USM Hospital in 1982. The campus had expanded following the shift of the School of Medical science from Minden to Kubang Kerian. The Engineering Campus was originally known as the Perak Branch Campus as it was situated in Perak at Tronoh. After 15 years, the campus had shifted to Nibong Tebal in mainland Penang.
