The University of Paris (French: Université de Paris) first emerged in the second half of the 12th century, but in 1970 was reorganized as 13 autonomous universities (University of Paris I–XIII). The university is often referred to as the Sorbonne or La Sorbonne because of the college institution (Collège de Sorbonne) founded in 1257 by Robert de Sorbon, but the university is older and was never centered entirely on the Sorbonne. Of the thirteen universities, the first four universities are located at the Sorbonne, and three of them bear the name Sorbonne. These thirteen universities still exist and are under the general rector of the Paris Academy, with offices located at the Sorbonne. In 2006, the Chancellor of the Paris Academy and Chancellor of the University of Paris was Maurice Quénet. The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Paris is Pierre Gregory.

The University of Paris remains one of the most renowned and prestigious universities in the world, and has created Nobel Prize winners from its faculty and student body, as well as some of the greatest intellectuals, politicians, scientists, technicians, physicists, theologians, and artists. Many great scientists were born in this university. Examples are Victor Hugo, Claude Levi-Strauss, Roland Barthes, Jean Baudrillard, Paul Ricouer, Henri Lefebvre, and many others.
