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.
The local state school is Goerdeler-Gymnasium. There is also a British school John Buchan School, which is located in Sennelager and mainly educates children of British military personnel and the garrison's employees.
