University of Gladzor (Armenian: Գլաձորի համալսարան, Gladzori hamalsaran) was a medieval Armenian university, one of the two "great centres of learning" along with the University of Tatev (c. 1340-1425) that were "essentially of a single tradition."[1][2] It was established around 1280 by Nerses of Mush[2] and operated until 1340 and "left behind a rich intellectual heritage."[3]
