University of Orlais in Val Royeaux is one of the oldest Universities in Thedas. It's a major center of learning that attracts young nobles from all over Thedas with the best education one can buy. The University is a relatively modern institution, whose liberal-minded professors have already clashed with religious conservatives over the content of their classes. Once Brother Genitivi lectured there.
The university was found by one of the emperors of Olrais.
By decree of Divine Renata I, any Chantry art in Orlais depicting elves has been destroyed save a single mural of Shartan which is at the University in Orlais, with his ears docked, and a copy of that at the University of Orlais.
