The University of Michel de Montaigne Bordeaux III has been renamed the University of Bordeaux Montaigne following the merger of the 3 other universities .


After 1968, as a result of the May riots , the university was forced to move most of its activities from the city of Bordeaux to suburbs. Today the majority of Universities I, III and IV have their campuses in the suburb of Talence . There are also facilities in Gradignan and Pessac . University II has remained mostly in the center of Bordeaux and partly in buildings from the 19th century.


In the Academic Ranking of World Universities , the University of Bordeaux is in the 151–200 group.
