Bangkok University (Thai: มหาวิทยาลัยกรุงเทพ), established in 1962, is one of the oldest and largest private, non-profit universities in Thailand. The main campus is in the central business district of Bangkok. The university expanded its operation to a second campus in Rangsit, Pathum Thani Province to accommodate its rapid growth.
The university president is Mr Petch Osathanugrah (2016).
Using Thai as the language of instruction, Bangkok University awards bachelor's degrees, master's degrees, and doctoral degrees. The university also has an international program, using English as the language of instruction. The international program awards bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees.
Bangkok University has two campuses:
The City Campus (called "Kluay Nam Thai Campus", Thai: วิทยาเขตกล้วยน้ำไท) is in Phra Khanong Sub-district, Khlong Toei District. It occupies approximately 15,000 m2. International students attend this campus, as well as academics in special programs. It is the campus for most students in their third or fourth years. It is the location of the office of the university president, as well as the international college, the graduate school, and other faculties. There are laboratories, classrooms, seminar rooms, libraries, computer centre, and an indoor sports centre. An art gallery, the Bangkok University Gallery (BUG), opened on the campus in 2006.
The Rangsit campus (วิทยาเขตรังสิต) is in Tambon Khlong Neung Amphoe Khlong Luang of Pathum Thani Province. It is approximately fourteen kilometres north of Don Mueang International Airport. The campus is approximately 265,000 m2 in size. Regular students in their first and second years study here, except that regular communication arts students (not international) study on this campus for four years. Also on the campus are the Bangkok University Stadium, home stadium of Bangkok University FC, Thailand Premier League 2006 champions, the Surat Osathanugrah Library, and Pongtip Osathanugrah Communication Arts Complex. The BU Southeast Asian Ceramics Museum, an important archaeological research facility, is on the Rangsit campus. The campus has received the ISO 14001 standard, the first in Thailand to receive the designation.
