The Mediterranean International University was founded on 10/12/2014, (resolution of MIU Board No. 01- 2014) in Benghazi, Libya and operates under license number (6044) of 12 / 05 / 2014. The founders aim at providing theoretical and practical education in Arabic and English, gaining prestigious status among the regional higher education institutions, and lifting the level of the Libyan higher education through the advancement and progress of supportive and promising higher education institution that meets the quality assurance of the Libyan and international requirements. In fulfilling these aims, the university hopes to disseminate knowledge and support scientific research with all available means and methods in accordance with public and private professional ethics.

The International Mediterranean University is located in the city of Benghazi on a 10,000-square-meter plot of land in the Kanfoudah area in the western suburb of Benghazi. However, as a result of the difficult security conditions of the city through which it was not possible to complete the building of the MIU campus in Kanfudah, the university moved temporary to a rented building located on Nahr Street in the Kish area within the city of Benghazi. The current building, which consists of three floors and an external yard, has been prepared and equipped with all the educational support facilities.
