The University of Vicenza was a medieval university located in the town of Vicenza in the Veneto region of Italy. It was recognized as a studium generale in 1204.[1]

The university was first formed by students migrating from the University of Bologna; Hastings Rashdall suggests a number of universities were formed the same way during the first decade of the 13th century.[2] The university closed in 1209.[3]
