14世纪, “高等学府”, 也是“构成大学的团体”, 来自英法 université, 古法语 universite “普遍性; 学术共同体” (13世纪), 来自中世纪拉丁语 universitatem (名词 universitas), “整体, 集合”, 晚期拉丁语“公司, 社会”, 来自 universus “整体, 整个” (见 universe). 在学术意义上, 是 universitas magistrorum et scholarium “大师和学者的共同体” 的缩写; 取代 studium 成为这个词. 该拉丁词也是西班牙语 universidad, 德语 universität, 俄语 universitet 等的来源.
