Dublin University (eng. University of Dublin) - one of the four universities in Dublin, the oldest university in Ireland, one of the seven "old universities" in Great Britain and Ireland. There are currently about 15,500 students enrolled at the university. The university was founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth I of England under the name The College of the Holy and Undivided Trinity of Queen Elizabeth near Dublin. Unlike the universities of Oxford and Cambridge, which have many colleges, after which the university was created, there is only one college in Dublin - Trinity College. Therefore, in practice, the concepts of "Trinity College, Dublin" and "University of Dublin" are used as synonyms.
