Nanterre La Dfense (Universit Paris Ouest Nanterre La Dfense) is a
French university in the Academy of Versailles. It is one of the 13
successor universities of the University of Paris. It is located in
the western suburb of Nanterre, near La Dfense, the business
district of Paris. Paris X University was built in the 1960s on the
outskirts of Paris as an extension of the Sorbonne. Based on the
American model, it was created as a campus (as opposed to the old
French universities which were smaller and integrated to the city
they were in). Paris X University became famous shortly after its
opening by being at the center of the May 68 student rebellion. The
campus was nicknamed "Nanterre, la folle" (Mad Nanterre) or
"Nanterre la rouge" (Red Nanterre, in reference to communism). To
this day, the university remains traditionally a center of the left
wing, as opposed to universities such as Paris II-Assas,
traditionally inclined to the right.
