The University of Zaragoza, sometimes referred to as Saragossa University (Spanish: Universidad de Zaragoza) is a public university with teaching campuses and research centres spread over the three provinces of Aragon (Spain).

Founded in 1542, it is one of the oldest universities in Spain, with a history dating back to the Roman period.

It has been the alma mater of Prime Ministers Pascual Madoz, Manuel Azaña, Salustiano de Olózaga and Eusebio Bardají, of the Nobel Prize laureate and father of modern neuroscience Santiago Ramón y Cajal, the Catholic saint Josemaría Escrivá and the Cuban national hero Jose Marti, who studied at this university.

In 2014, it had more than 30,000 students and more than 3,000 teaching members, among its 22 centers and 74 degrees. Its current rector is José Antonio Mayoral Murillo, full professor of organic chemistry.[5]
