The University of Nantes is a well-known French university, located in the city of Nantes. Currently, it is attended by approximately 32,000 students, of which the vast majority are French.


The current University was founded in 1970 under the terms of the 1968 law which reformed French higher education. This newly established institution replaced the former University of Nantes which had been founded in the early 1960s. This itself was a re-establishment of the original University of Nantes which was established by papal bull in 1460 but was abolished during the French Revolution.
