The Free University of Brussels (French: Université Libre de Bruxelles) was a university in Brussels, Belgium established in 1834.
The university, founded on the principle of secularism by Pierre-Théodore Verhaegen and Auguste Baron in 1834, formed part of a reaction to Catholic dominance in Belgian education. In 1969, during the Linguistic Wars, it split into two separate universities: the French-speaking Université Libre de Bruxelles (known as ULB) and the Dutch-speaking Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB).
The two universities continue to collaborate, and are together referred to as the Brussels Free Universities.
