The name Universitas Brawijaya (Brawijaya University) was granted by the President of the Republic of Indonesia through a wire sent on July 11, 1961. This name is derived from the title of Kings of Majapahit, a great kingdom in Indonesia from 12th to 15th centuries. UB transformed into a state university on January 5, 1963, following a Presidential Decree issued earlier in the same year. This date was later promulgated as UB's anniversary (specially called Dies Natalies among Indonesian academi society members). Prior to its transformation into a state university in 1967, UB had started its operation in 1957 in Malang, as a branch of University of Sawerigading Makassar. In those days, this Malang branch had two faculties, the Faculty of Law and the Faculty of Economics. Then, on July 1, 1960, its name was changed into the Municipal University of Malang. Under the new name, two more faculties were established a few months later, that is, the Faculty of Trade Administration and the Faculty of Agriculture. Finally, the name Municipal University of Malang was changed into Universitas Brawijaya.

At the time of its transformation into a state university, UB only had 5 faculties: the Faculty of Law, the Faculty of Economics, the Faculty of State Governance and Trade Management (an extension of the Faculty of Trade Administration now called the Faculty of Administrative Science), the Faculty of Agriculture and the Faculty of Veterinary and Animal Husbandry. In 1973, the Faculty of Veterinary and Animal Husbandry was then divided into two faculties: The Faculty of Animal Husbandry and the Faculty of Veterinary, which were under Airlangga University. The Faculty of Engineering was established in 1963 based on a Decree form the Ministry of Universities and Education Science in the same year.

In 1982, due to a change in UB's organizational structure, the Faculty of Fishery became a separate faculty after previously, since 1977, it had been under the Faculty of Animal Husbandry and Fishery, which was later called the Faculty of Animal Husbandry. As a matter of fact, prior to this date, the Faculty of Fishery had operated since 1963, but in Probolinggo, a town about three hours away to the Northeast from Malang, as a department under UB's Faculty of Veterinary and Agriculture of UB. The Faculty of Medicine has officially been under UB since 1974. Previously, since its establishment, it had been under the Foundation of Higher Education of East Java. The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences was inaugurated following the issuance of a Decree from the Ministry of Education and Culture dated October 21, 1993. UB added one more faculty, that is, the Faculty of Agricultural Technology, which was upgraded from the Department of Agricultural Technology, which had been under the Faculty of Agriculture.

The Hymn of UB was composed by a student of the Faculty of Veterinary and Animal Husbandry called Yanardhana in 1963, while the Mars of UB was composed by Lilik Sugiarto in 1996. Both songs are still frequently sung up to this day.
