In 1885, the Detroit College of Medicine merged with its competitor, the Michigan College of Medicine and they consolidated buildings. In 1913 the school was restructured as the Detroit College of Medicine and Surgery, passing under that name into the control of the Detroit Board of Education.

These institutions are incarnated today as the Wayne State University School of Medicine. In 1881, the Detroit Normal Training School for Teachers was established by the Detroit Board of Education. In 1920, after several re-locations to larger quarters, the school became the Detroit Teachers College; the Board of Education voted in 1924 to make the college a part of the new College of the City of Detroit. This became the Wayne State University College of Education. In 1917, the Detroit Board of Education founded the Detroit Junior College and would make Detroit Central High School's Old Main Hall its campus. Detroit's College of Pharmacy and the Detroit Teachers College were added to the campus in 1924, were organized into the College of the City of Detroit; the original junior college became the College of Liberal Arts.

Recognizing the need for a good public law school, a group of lawyers, including Allan Campbell, the school's founding dean, established Detroit City Law School in 1927 as part of the College of the City of Detroit. Structured as a part-time, evening program, the school's first class graduated with the bachelor of laws degree in 1928 and achieved full American Bar Association in 1939; the school is known today as Wayne State University Law School. In 1933, the Detroit Board of Education voted to unify the colleges. In January 1934, that institution was named Wayne University, taking its name from Wayne County in which the University and the City of Detroit reside, as well as Major General Anthony Wayne. Continuing to grow, Wayne University added its School of Social Work in 1935, the School of Business Administration in 1946.

In 1985, the School of Fine and the Performing Arts, the College of Urban and Metropolitan Affairs grew the university further. In the early 21st-century, WSU constructed several new buildings, including the Integrative Biosciences Center, a 207,000-square-foot facility for interdisciplinary work in the biosciences.
