The university was opened in 1986, and is located in Babayi Expressway near Tehranpars and Hakimiyeh in northeastern Tehran. The university is affiliated with IRGC, Ministry of Science, Research and Technology (Iran), and Ministry of Defense and Armed Forces Logistics (Iran). It is sometimes referred to as "IHU". The university's official title is the Imam Hossein Comprehensive University (Persian: دانشگاه جامع امام حسین Dāneshgāh-e Jām-e Emām Hossein). It is named after Imam Hossein, a grandson of the Islamic prophet, who was martyred in 680.
IHU provides undergraduate and postgraduate programs in 15 departments. The student body consists of 6,000 students and cadets. The procedure for accepting and processing requests at IHU is different from other universities. Regular students can get admission by passing Iranian University Entrance Exam which is done yearly by Ministry of Science, Research and Technology (Iran). Those students are without scholarship and will not be employed by IRGC. They should also pay tuition fees. However, students with scholarship are accepted by IRGC after passing ideological interviews and medical tests, and being a member of Basij will be an advantage for getting scholarship. Those students are not permitted to go abroad or work for private companies. For many years, IRGC Cadet College and IHU academic division were in the same place. But, Imam Hossein Cadet College was separated from the academic division in 2005. Then, the academic division was relocated to another recently built infrastructure, and was renamed to the "Imam Hossein Comprehensive University".
