The Royal University of Koningstad (Dutch: Real Universiteit van Koningstad), also known as RUK, is a public research university and Brunant's largest, founded in 1795. It is located in both Grafstad and Charleston Beach in the capital Koningstad.


The Royal University of Koningstad was founded under the orders of James Carrington, who wanted to have a university in his capital. From 7 October 1795 to 3 June 1801, Crown Prince Ambroos (later king) was made the first Chancellor of the University and since 1803, he was declared honorary president for life.

While located in the political capital of Brunant, the University began to specialize in science and medicine and it has the most prestigious medical school in the country, the King Adrian Medical School.
