In Cambridge, England, there is a public, coeducational research institution called the University of Cambridge. The University of Cambridge is the third-oldest institution still in existence, having been founded in 1209.

With the arrival of academics who had left the University of Oxford for Cambridge following a conflict with neighbourhood residents, the institution was established. While they are sometimes referred to as competitors, the two old English institutions have many things in common and are often referred to as Oxbridge together. 22 years after its creation, in 1231, King Henry III recognised the institution with a royal charter.

The University of Cambridge has 150 academic departments, faculties, and other organisations divided into six schools, along with 31 constituent colleges that are semi-autonomous. All students are required to be affiliated with one of the colleges within the university. Eight cultural and scientific institutions, including the Fitzwilliam Museum and Cambridge University Botanic Garden, are also run by the university. A total of 16 million volumes are housed in Cambridge’s 116 libraries, nine million of which are in the Cambridge University Library, one of the greatest academic libraries in the world.

Cambridge University has been awarded 121 Nobel Prizes, with Sir Roger Penrose taking home the most recent award in 2020. 14 British prime ministers, 92 Olympic gold medalists, and several historically significant and influential figures in their fields are among the university’s notable alumni. The university is currently ranked fourth in the world, second in the world according to the QS World University Rankings, third in the world according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, second in the UK according to the Complete University Guide, and third in the UK according to the Guardian University Guide and the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide.
