Linyi University (LYU, simplified Chinese: 临沂大学; traditional Chinese: 臨沂大學; pinyin: Línyí Dàxué) is a public university based in Lanshan district of Linyi, Shandong province, China. It offers studies in 62 different undergraduate degrees, organized among nine major disciplines: Economics, Law, Education, Literature, History, Science, Engineering, Agriculture and Management.


The predecessor school of Linyi University, Seaside High School of the Military and Political College (军政干部学院滨海中学), was founded in 1941. It was one of the first universities in Shandong, taking the name of Linyi University in 1958. Yet the institution was transformed into a teachers school just one year later. Through the following decades it kept the profile of an institution for teachers education, and was known as Linyi Normal University (临沂师范学院) after 1999, the school was finally awarded full university status in 2010.
