Clermont Auvergne University (French: Université Clermont Auvergne) is a public university with its main campus in Clermont-Ferrand, France. It was created with the merger of Blaise Pascal University and the University of Auvergne on 1 January 2017.

There had been only one university in Clermont-Ferrand since the 19th century. In 1976, due to political disagreements following the 1969 loi Faure, the university was split in two, Clermont I University (later renamed University of Auvergne) and Clermont II University (Blaise Pascal University) 16 March 1976.
Discussions about the possibility of merging the two universities were started in 2012, and the merging was officially announced on 23 September 2013 by the two university presidents.
