Weber Stake Academy, the university's forerunner, was founded in the Utah Territory in 1889. Members of the Mormon Church ran it at the time. It became a regular (teacher-training) college in 1916. Before the college was taken over by the state in 1933, it was a two-year institution. It conferred its first bachelor's degrees in 1964. In 1991, Weber State was designated as a university.
The school went under several names in the early twentieth century, including Weber Stake Academy from 1889 to 1897, Weber Academy in 1902, Weber Normal College in 1918, and Weber College in 1922. The college was in financial trouble by the late 1920s, and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints had four options: transfer it to a partnership between the city of Ogden and Weber County; transfer it to the University of Utah as a branch campus; transfer it to the state of Utah as a junior college, or shut it down. The Utah Legislature approved a law in 1931 allowing Weber College and Snow College to be purchased from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The university is located in Ogden, Utah, on the east bench of the Wasatch Mountains; the Dee Events Center for indoor athletics is one mile (1.6 kilometers) south of campus.
