In common parlance, University of Bordeaux can also refer to one or all of the four public successor universities to the historic University of Bordeaux, each of which covers a different field of study:

These four universities, together with the University of Pau and the Adour region, make up the five public universities under the jurisdiction of the Academy of Bordeaux.

Bordeaux 2 is located in central Bordeaux, while the other three were relocated in the 1960s to the Domaine Universitaire, a vast campus located in the Bordeaux suburb communes of Talence, Pessac and Gradignan.


The historic University of Bordeaux

The original University of Bordeaux was established by the papal bull of Pope Eugene IV of 7 June 1441. The initiative for the creation of the university is attributed to Archbishop Pey Berland. The university originally was composed of four faculties: arts, medicine, law, and theology. The law faculty later split into faculties of civil law and canon law.

This university was disestablished in 1793, and then was refounded by the law of 10 July 1896.

Following the events of May 1968, the university was split into three universities: Bordeaux I, Bordeaux II, and Bordeaux III. In 1995[8], the University of Bordeaux I was split into two universities: the new Bordeaux I and Bordeaux IV.
