1826

Shortly before its removal to Munich, LMU has 1,000 students.

At the turn of 1825/26, shortly before the University moved to Munich, now the capital of the Kingdom of Bavaria, approximately 1,000 students were on the rolls, making LMU the fifth largest university in Germany – behind Leipzig, Göttingen, Halle and Berlin. During the quarter-century in which LMU was resident in Landshut some 5,700 studied there. Of these, 20% chose to study Philosophy, 25% Theology and 35% Law; the remaining 10% were medical students.
