Welcome to the University of Orléans
Born in 1306, our multi-disciplinary University celebrated its 700th anniversary in 2006. The University of Orleans is one of the oldest universities in Europe. Famous people like Pope Clement V (1264-1314), Jean Calvin (1505-1673), Moliere (1622-1673) or Charles Perrault (1628-1703) studied here …
The university was relocated in 1961 on the campus of Orleans La Source, close to prestigious research institutes such as CNRS, BRGM and INRA, in a city where life is enjoyable.
Situated in the heart of the “Loire Valley-UNESCO” in about a hundred hectares of forest, just one hour from Paris by train, the multi-disciplinary campus of the University of Orleans attracts and welcomes around 14,000 students — among them, more than 2,000 foreigners, that is to say 15% of the total number of students — in the framework of the LMD system.
The University’s international status has been reinforced year by year in the field of education and research cooperation. Its policy for international degree programmes represents a major asset for mobility.
