University of Caen Normandy

History

Founded in 1432 by the King of England Henry VI, the University of Caen was destroyed in 1944 during the Battle of Normandy. It was among the first buildings to be rebuilt during the city reconstruction after World War II. Redesigned with a futuristic vision, it became one of the most modern universities in Europe. In 2012, part of its buildings were thus classified as historical monuments.
