Sorbonne University is a public university in Paris, France, which was officially established in 2018 following the merger of Paris-Sorbonne University and Pierre and Marie Curie University. However, the institution can trace its history back to the 13th century and the University of Paris, which had a Collège de Sorbonne which was founded in 1257 by Robert de Sorbon. The university’s central campus is located in Paris’s Latin Quarter, on property inherited from the former University of Paris. The Jussieu Campus - formally the Campus Universitaire de Jussieu - is located in the 5th arrondissement of Paris and was the main campus of the Pierre and Marie Curie University (also known as Paris VI). Meanwhile, the institution’s Maison de la Recherche campus houses the history and geography departments and the Serpente Library, which boasts more than 50,000 works and about 300 French and international periodicals. The university has a number of prestigious scientific collections The Sorbonne University houses eight notable scientific collections, including a display of 1,500 minerals; a collection of nearly 50 photographic plates created by Gabriel Lippmann in his studies of photography; and the Charcot library, which houses a collection of the personal library of neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot. Sorbonne University is comprised of three faculties: arts and humanities; science and engineering; and medicine. In 2008, Paris-Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi was established in the United Arab Emirates, which teaches a range of qualifications in the French language. Sorbonne University was first ranked by THE in the 2019 World University Rankings.
