The University of Valencia of today is the outcome of more than five centuries of history that have led to the accumulation of knowledge and unique documentary treasures, making it one of the top Spanish universities.

In the thirteenth century, higher education was established in the city of Valencia thanks to King James I of Aragon who, in 1245, had obtained a Studium Generale institution from Pope Innocent IV. However, not until 30 October 1499 did the Juries of Valencia draw up the Constitutions of what was to become the first University of Valencia: a university authorised by the Papal Bull on 23 January 1501, signed by the Valencian Pope Alexander VI and by the royal privilege of Ferdinand II the Catholic. It was granted on 16 February 1502.

For more than 500 years, the development of the University of Valencia has run in parallel with the development of the city and has been an inextricable part of its urban fabric, creating spaces for teaching, research, creation and dissemination of culture and science as well as knowledge transfer.
