The station opened along with the rest of the CTS Rapid Transit on March 15, 1955 and was originally named "University Circle Rapid Station." As originally constructed, the station had entrances and bus loading lanes on both sides of Cedar east of the rail tracks. In addition, there was a bus loop with loading area southwest of the station at the corner of Cedar Avenue and Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive.
In October 2010, federal funds were secured for a complete reconstruction of the station and to bring it into full ADA compliance. Ground was broken on September 19, 2012 and the new station opened on August 28, 2014. Upon its reopening, the station was given the new name of Cedar–University. The new facility reconstructed the rail station in the same general location, but the entrance on the south side of Cedar was closed and removed and the south bus loading lane was also eliminated. The bus loop transfer zone was rebuilt and moved to the northeast corner of the intersection of Cedar Avenue and Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive.
