Sorbonne University (French :Sorbonne Université) is a multi-disciplinary research university established by the merger in 2018 of Paris-Sorbonne University and Pierre et Marie Curie University.

It employs 6,700 professors, research professor and researchers and 4,900 library, administrative, technical, social and health staff. Its budget is 675 M€.

Sorbonne University is headquartered in the heart of Paris, and extends its presence to more than twenty sites in the Île-de-France region. The three faculties of humanities, science & engineering and medicine have a wide-ranging autonomy in implementing the university's strategy based on a contract on shared objectives and means. University governance is primarily dedicated to promoting the university's strategy, steering, developing partnerships and diversifying resources.

The Faculty of Science and Engineering is composed of 79 research laboratories, 22 departments and 6 education and research units in chemistry, engineering, mathematics, physics, biology, earth environment and biodiversity. It also includes the École polytechnique universitaire, the Institut d'astrophysique de Paris and the Institut Henri Poincaré as well as 4 observatories of the sciences of the universe (Roscoff, Banyuls et Villefranche-sur-Mer, ECCE-TERRA).

It has about 21,000 students, including 2,700 doctoral students, and 3,252 staff members - professors, professor-researchers, researchers and administrative and technical staff.
