The University of Toulouse is a consortium of universities and other institutions of higher education and research, named after one of the earliest universities established in Europe in 1229, and including the successor universities to that earlier university. This article describes the institutions that have been called the University of Toulouse.


The formation of the University of Toulousemarker was imposed on Count Raymond VII as a part of the Treaty of Paris in 1229 ending the crusade against the Albigensians. As he was suspected of sympathizing with the heretics, Raymond VII had to finance the teaching of theology. Bishop Foulques de Toulouse was among the founders of the University. Among its first lecturers were: Jean de Garlande,Roland of Cremona. Other faculties (law, medicine) were added later. Initially, the University was located in the center of the city, together with the ancestors of student residences, the colleges.

In 1969, the University of Toulouse split into three separate universities and numerous specialised institutions of higher education. The present-day University of Toulouse was founded on 27 March 2007. The University of Toulouse has more than 120,000 students, making Toulouse the second-largest university city in France (after Parismarker). It is a consortium consisting of:
