Amity University was established on 24 March 2005 through The Amity University Uttar Pradesh Act, 2005 (Act 11 of 2005) of the UP Vidhan Sabha by the Ritnand Balved Education Foundation.[4]

It was India's first private university to implement reservations for both faculty as well as students.[5] The school was started in 2003 with an enrollment of 120 students.[citation needed] In 2011, it was reported to have over 80,000 students across 240 programs.[6]

In September 2015, the university signed a memorandum of understanding with the BSE Institute, a subsidiary of the Bombay Stock Exchange, to commence a 2-year distance learning MBA programme in global financial markets, that will be open to students and working professionals.[9][10]

In September 2016, the university purchased St. John's University's 170-acre campus in Oakdale, New York for US$22 million (£18 million).[11]
