Paderborn was once the oldest academic site in Westphalia. In 1614, the University of Paderborn was founded by the Jesuits but was closed in 1819. It was re-founded in 1972 as Universität-Gesamthochschule and transformed into a university in its own right in 2002. Today, it is attended by about 14,000 students.
Additionally, several theological and private academic institutes exist.
Paderborn has the largest computer museum in the world, the Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum. From 2001 to 2005 it hosted the RoboCup German Open.
