Bursa Uludağ University Faculty of Theology started education and training in a primary school building in Geçitköy as the Bursa Higher Islamic Institute on 28 November 1975 under the directorate of Halis Ayhan. Later, the institute was moved to the Historical Sericulture Research Institute allocated to the High Islamic Institute and continued its education in the additional education building built there. In 1982, the High Islamic Institute was affiliated to Uludağ University with the name of "Faculty of Theology". The building in Fethiyeköy, whose construction was started as the Higher Islamic Institute, was completed after a year and the Faculty of Theology was moved to this building in 1983.
In July 2012, the Faculty of Theology was temporarily moved to Uludağ University Görükle Campus, after it was determined that the existing building was not earthquake resistant and the classrooms of the building were demolished and rebuilt. As a result of the reconstruction of the building with the contributions of the benevolent businessman Faik Çelik, the Faculty of Theology returned to its former campus in September 2013 and continued its education and training under the name of Uludağ University Faculty of Theology Faik Çelik Campus. The Faculty of Theology still continues its educational and training activities in this campus.
