It is one of Korea's three "SKY" universities, considered the most prestigious universities in the country, with the other members being Seoul National University and Korea University.

The university was formally established in January, 1957 through the union of Yonhi College (연희전문학교; 延禧專門學校) and Severance Union Medical College (세브란스 의과대학; 세브란스 醫科大學). This was a result of a lasting bilateral cooperation between the two colleges that began in the 1920s. The institutions were new to Korea at the time of their inception—Yonhi College was one of the first modern colleges, founded originally as Chosun Christian College (조선기독교대학; 朝鮮基督教大學) in March, 1915, and Severance has its roots in the first modern medical center in Korea, Gwanghyewon (광혜원 廣惠院, House of Extended Grace), founded in April, 1885. As a tribute, the name 'Yonsei' was derived from the first syllables of the names of its two parent institutions, 'Yon; 연; 延' from Yonhi College and 'Sei; 세; 世' from Severance Union Medical College.

Historically, the Daeyeon-dong area was a small fishing village which was populated by anchovy fishermen. In the early years of the 20th century these fishermen found their products in high demand and amassed a fairly sizable amount of wealth. With this money they purchased what is now the Daeyeon-dong campus land and donated it to the national government under the condition that it be used to establish training for their industry. During the Korean War, the Daeyeon campus was used as an airfield by the U.S. Air Force. Local residents constructed a large Dol-Jip “stone house” for the commanding officers and pilots. Today this building still stands and is used as a student cafeteria.

At present, there are some 26,000 students and 544 professors on both campuses which cover 673,899 m2. Three large libraries (two are in Daeyeon Dong and one is in Yong Dong campus) are there. The old library is open to students 24 hours a day. A network of shuttle buses runs every 15 minutes. The two campuses are separated by about 4 km distance. The bus takes 10–15 minutes and is free for students.

Although primarily a fisheries university, PKNU has 6 colleges including a large humanities and social sciences department, 4 graduate programs with master's courses in 60 departments in 15 interdisciplinary programs and doctoral courses in 56 departments and 12 interdisciplinary programs. In addition there are 8 research institutes.

In 2012, the mayor of Seoul, PARK Won-Soon, implemented a campaign promise, "Half-priced tuition" as soon as he started his term. The half-priced tuition was initiated in UOS first so that it would drive other universities to decrease their tuition. In 2013, UOS tuition per semester ranged from $915 to $1,441 (two semesters a year, 1,117.3 won/$ in 2013). Because of high quality of education and low tuition of UOS, admission process has been more competitive. And student's satisfaction is still very high. In 2012, the registration rate of new students was very high (96%) and the withdrawal rate of students was extremely low (0.97%), compared with other universities in Seoul.

Because UOS students think that they take a lot of financial and educational benefits from the Seoul government, most of them participate in social works. Number of social work volunteers in 2012 was 3,105 and is expected to increase.
