The university was originally named the Massachusetts Agricultural College, founded in 1863 under the provisions of the Federal Morrill Land-Grant Colleges Act. It was mandated to instruct the citizens of Massachusetts on the "agricultural, mechanical, and military arts" of the time. It was not until 1867, under the term of William S. Clark as college president that the school admitted its first students.

The college thrived during the start of the 20th century, allowing it to expand its curriculum to accommodate the liberal arts. In 1931, it was renamed as Massachusetts State College.

Major construction projects further occurred after World War II to allow it to accept a growing number of applicants. In 1947, the college was elevated as the University of Massachusetts.

The 2021 edition of the Best National Universities by the US News and World Reports ranked the university tied in the 66th place and 26th among 141 US public universities. Its computer science undergraduate program tied for 31st among 481 US colleges.

The National Research Council placed the university second in polymer science and 18th in its quality of PhD program.

The university is known for pursuing sustainability, a response to the challenges of the changing climate. It aims to be carbon-neutral by 2050 and accordingly pushed a Climate Action Plan in 2010. It was rewarded with a gold star by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education in 2011.

The university faculty adopted an open-access policy, making its research database publicly accessible online. The university is well recognized for the quality of its outputs in the field of astrophysics, optics, electronics, nanotechnology, and synthetic polymers, among others.
