The University of Quebec (Fr: Université du Québec) is a system of ten provincially-run public universities in Quebec, Canada. Its headquarters are in Quebec City. The university coordinates university programs for more than 87,000 students. It offers more than 300 programs. The government of Quebec founded the Université du Québec, a network of universities in several Quebec cities. In a similar fashion to other Canadian provinces, all universities in Quebec have since become public.
It was created in 1968 by an act of Quebec's National Assembly. The component institutions are:
- the École de technologie supérieure (ETS), in Montreal;
- the École nationale d'administration publique (ENAP), based in Quebec City, with campuses in Montreal, Gatineau, Trois-Rivières, and Saguenay;
- the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS), based in Quebec City and a campus in Montreal;
- the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi (UQAC), in Saguenay;
- the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQÀM), in Montreal;
- the Université du Québec à Rimouski (UQAR), in Rimouski;
- the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (UQTR), in Trois-Rivières;
- the Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue (UQAT), with campuses in Rouyn-Noranda, Val-d'Or, and other towns;
- the Université du Québec en Outaouais (UQO), in Gatineau.
- Télé-Université (Téluq) was originally an independent component of the network, based in Quebec City, with offices in Montreal, but was made an affiliate of UQAM in 2005. On 13 January 2012, it was announced that the TELUQ would become a separate university from UQAM.
