University of Catania (UNICT) is a public university located in the Italian region of Sicily. Founded in the 1400s, the university is among the oldest in the world and is also currently the largest university in Sicily.

The university currently offers over 100 programs at the bachelor's, master's, university master's, and Ph.D. levels through its departments, which specialize in fields such as agriculture, engineering, physics, chemistry, political science, and education. Students can also pursue medicine and surgery programs through its Faculty of Medicine. In addition to these departments, UNICT maintains didactic units in architecture and foreign languages and literature for advanced studies in these fields. Aside from these programs, the university offers courses in the Italian language through its School of Italian Language and Culture.

Students at UNICT can participate in advanced courses offered by the university's School of Excellence, the Scuola Superiore di Catania. The university accommodates international students at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels and offers double degrees through its partnerships with public and private institutions in Canada, Brazil, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States, among other countries. The university also participates in the European Union's Erasmus+ Program.

Sicily's first university, the University of Catania was founded in 1434 by King Alfonso V of Aragon, who also ruled Sicily and wanted to establish a studium generale that can grant bachelor's degrees and licenses to students. Ten years after its founding, the university was officially recognized by Pope Eugene IV and started admitting its first students into schools of Canon and Civil Law, Medicine, Theology and Arts, and Philosophy. In the late 1690s, the university moved to the Palazzo dell'Università, which remains the seat of the Catania University today. The university's campus is also home to a botanical garden and observatory, both established in the 1800s. In addition to these facilities, UNICT also houses several museums dedicated to the arts and natural sciences.

UNICT has also established itself as a leading research institute in Sicily. The university is home to over 450 researchers and over 80 research centers and laboratories focused on studies in areas such as archeology, cerebral cancers, rare diseases, pharmacology, and humanistic informatics. It is also involved in several national and international research projects and is a member of the European Researcher's Mobility Centres Network.

As a testament to the university's excellence in academics and research, the University of Catania has produced several notable scholars throughout its history. These figures include historian Santo Mazzarino, mathematicians Guido Fubini and Mario Pieri, and astronomer Giuseppe Colombo.
