Founded in the Winter of 5 YD by Duke Sammael Haine of Springdale City, the university was built to encourage intellectual discussion and written expositions on various areas of knowledge. The University thrived to up to seventeen or more campuses but then declined drastically throughout its lifespan. By 22 YD, only the very first campus and the most recent stood. A resurgence began at the very end of the Autumn in order to reclaim the lost glory of academia, centered around Shinnen Purlieus and Luria Nova, with Seoras Madigan Nifelleisca, Aldrakar Renodin, and Jonsu Himoura amongst the prominent. Later, under the patronship of Emperor Aldrakar Renodin of Luria Nova, the University of Dwilight was founded in Shinnen Purlieus by Earl Staedtler la Stylo, after the Dwilight University had collapsed.
