Tishreen University (Arabic: جامعة تشرين, lit.'October University'), is a public university located in Latakia, Syria. It is the third-largest university in Syria.


The university was founded under the name of the University of Latakia on 20 May 1971. The name was changed in 1975 to honor the memory of the October War (Tishreen War in Arabic).

In the beginning, the university only had 3 faculties, Arabic literature, science, and agriculture, and an enrollment of 983 students during the 1970s.[1] However, that number has grown to more than 70,000 students,[1] making Tishreen University the third largest in Syria, with the number of its faculties increasing from 3 to 21.[1]

Many internally displaced students enrolled at the university after the outbreak of the Syrian Civil War.[2]
