“A university is a city in outer space”

The word “university” sounds like “universe city.” A pun was posted on the website Pun of the Day by Joseph Leff of Brooklyn, New York, on November 9, 2017:

“A university is a city in outer space.”


Online Etymology Dictionary
university (n.)
c. 1300, “institution of higher learning,” also “body of persons constituting a university,” from Anglo-French université, Old French universite “universality; academic community” (13c.), from Medieval Latin universitatem (nominative universitas), “the whole, aggregate,” in Late Latin “corporation, society,” from universus “whole, entire” (see universe). In the academic sense, a shortening of universitas magistrorum et scholarium “community of masters and scholars;” superseded studium as the word for this. The Latin word also is the source of Spanish universidad, German universität, Russian universitetŭ, etc.
