The University of North Sumatra was established in the form of a Foundation, which was established by the Leadership Council of the North Sumatra Universitet Foundation on June 4, 1952, by Abdul Hakim (Governor of North Sumatra Province) Dr. Mansoer (Chirurg in Medan), and Dr. Soemarsono (Inspector of People's Health of North Sumatra Province).

In early January 1954, the North Sumatra Universitet Foundation established the Faculty of Law and Community Knowledge, by accommodating several preparatory examination stage students at the Indonesian Islamic College (now the Islamic University of North Sumatra) who collectively applied to continue their studies under the auspices of the North Sumatra Universitet. At that time the Leadership Council of the North Sumatra Universitet Foundation decided while maintaining good relations with the Indonesian Islamic University and based on responsibility to the community, a shelter was held at that time for 8 students who had received a preparatory examination level. After a thorough screening, 37 students were accepted for the first time.

The Faculty of Law and Knowledge of the Community was officially opened on January 12, 1954, marked by the admission of 10 new students, and in line with that as a shelter, the effort accepted another 34 people as listeners. After taking additional exams to comply with the Regulation of the Minister of Education, Teaching and Culture of the Republic of Indonesia, dated September 5, 1954, Number: 12356 / BPT, 9 students were accepted from 21 people who requested additional exams. Thus, the Faculty of Law and Public Knowledge in the Academic Year 1953 – 1954 had 64 students plus 34 listeners. The head of the Faculty of Law and Community Knowledge at that time by the North Sumatra Universitet Foundation was appointed Mr. T. Dzulkarnain as Dean and Mr. Mahadi as Secretary.

Furthermore, on September 1, 1955, the Faculty of Law and Public Knowledge and the Faculty of Medicine were handed over to the Government of the Republic of Indonesia. Some of the figures who played a role in this matter are Prof. Mr. T. Dzulkarnain Prof. Mr. Mahadi Prof. Mr. Ani Abbas Manoppo Prof. Mr. Mahammad Yusuf, Mr. Tagor Ginagan Harahap T. Jafizham, S.H. These figures were then included in the process of establishing a State University in Medan which was listed in the Decree of the Minister of Education and Teaching and Culture of the Republic of Indonesia Number: 34175 / S, dated March 29, 1957. On Wednesday, November 20, 1957, Ir. Soekarno, President of the Republic of Indonesia inaugurated the establishment of the University of North Sumatra. Other figures whose role cannot be forgotten in this regard are:

Prof. Mr. Suhunan Hamzah Drs. Cung Tet Lie Prof. Mr. Tan Tjeng Bie Prof. Mr. T.M. Hanafiah.
