History

The University of Nice was officially founded on October 23, 1965. However, its predecessor can be traced back to the 17th century with the Collegium Jurisconsultorum Niciensium, founded in 1635 by the Prince of Savoy, that became an important school of law, jurisdiction and consultancy. The official founding of the University of Nice in 1965 made it a multidisciplinary university, consisting of the faculty of letters, sciences, law, and economics. In 1989, the University of Nice added Sophia Antipolis to the name to show its relation with the Sophia Antipolis technology park.

Campus

The "Grand Château" building at UNSA's Valrose campus.

The university has four main campuses: the Valrose campus (Sciences), the Trotabas campus (Law), the Saint-Jean d'Angély campus (Economics and Management) and the Carlone campus (Letters, Arts and Humanities).

However the university operates on several secondary locations like Sophia Antipolis or Villefranche-sur-Mer outside Nice.
