HAPPY 300th BIRTHDAY TO THE UNIVERSITY OF BURGUNDY


The University of Burgundy (Université de Bourgogne) in York’s twin city of Dijon will be celebrating its 300th year anniversary in 2022. The University of Burgundy (UB) was formerly known as the University of Dijon until 1984, which was founded in 1722.

UB is spread across six campuses in the region, with the main campus based in Dijon (Campus Montmuzard) west of the city centre.

The York-Dijon Twinning Group has sent best wishes to UB for 2022 and seeks to use this opportunity to encourage closer collaboration between UB and our two York-based Universities: The University of York, and York St John University.
