The university was established by charter in 1949. Its predecessor dates back to 1906 and was supported by Koyata Iwasaki, the fourth head of the Mitsubishi zaibatsu. Before World War II, this university was managed by donations from Mitsubishi Group. After World War II, it became independent from Mitsubishi Group through dissolution of the zaibatsu. However, Seikei University still has close connections with the Mitsubishi Group. This university has many graduates from families of noble or business backgrounds.
