In January 2003 MUP became Melbourne University Publishing Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of the University of Melbourne; it inherits the proud 80-year history of Melbourne University Press, which was founded in 1922.

Melbourne University Publishing Ltd publishes under two main imprints: Melbourne University Press and the Miegunyah Press. The name 'Melbourne University Press' is the general imprint of MUP. The Miegunyah Press is a special imprint of MUP, begun in the late 1960s at the suggestion of Sir Russell Grimwade. It is supported by a bequest from the Grimwade family and allows MUP to produce books of enduring quality with the highest production standards.(Adapted from the publisher's website:
