The school became Robert Morris College in 1969 when it began offering bachelor's degrees in business administration. The first graduate students were admitted in 1978 for master's degree programs in business administration, taxation, and business teacher education; the first doctoral program was offered in 1999. In 2002, the school attained university status and was thus renamed Robert Morris University. In 2010, the university sold its Downtown Center at 600 Fifth Avenue to Duquesne University.

On September 10, 2015, Robert Morris named Christopher B. Howard as its eighth president. Howard, the former president of Hampden-Sydney College, is the first African-American president in RMU's history; he assumed office in February 2016.
