The University of Urbino "Carlo Bo" (Italian: Università degli Studi di Urbino "Carlo Bo", UNIURB) is an Italian university located in Urbino, a walled hill-town in the region of Marche, located in the north-eastern part of central Italy. The university was founded in 1506 and, in the 1920s, gained recognition as an “Independent University” with a charter which made state aid possible though not mandatory. Once fully recognized as an Independent University, student numbers gradually increased as more facilities were opened.

During the 1960s/70s, the University succeeded in buying up quite a number of derelict palaces in the old center which have since been restored and used as faculty and department buildings. While the student body and faculties gradually increased and developed over time it was under the long and presidency of Senator for Life Carlo Bo that the University enjoyed unprecedented growth in size and prestige, prompting the former president of the European Community Commission, Roy Jenkins, to state that “the University of Urbino is an incisive presence in contemporary thought, contributing in original ways to the cultural and intellectual life of Europe”. This was also the period where architect Giancarlo De Carlo designed and built the University Halls of Residence, which can accommodate 1500 students.

Today, the University of Urbino is a state University. It numbers 8 departments and one centre of excellence and currently has about 20,000 students, many of whom are from overseas. The university has no central campus as such, and instead occupies numerous buildings throughout the town and in the surrounding countryside. The main accommodation blocks are situated a short distance from the town.

Traditionally a centre of studies in law since its foundation in 1506, nowadays the University of Urbino is renowned mostly for teaching and research in humanities, in particular literature and language studies, and sociology, and for the good reputation of its Italian language courses.
