This list of Nobel laureates by university affiliation shows the university affiliation (either as a student, alumnus or faculty) of winners of the Nobel Prize. Universities are listed in order of number of affiliated Nobel Prize winners, from highest to lowest.
It is not always straightforward to determine which institution was key to the contribution for which each Nobel laureate was honoured. Many laureates earn their bachelor's and master's degrees at one university, then move to a different university to earn their doctorates. Some laureates may have taught or done research at more than one university. Some names will appear below as 'graduates', 'researchers' or 'academic staff' of more than one university. Each institution practices different methods for counting affiliates, from extremely generous counting to extremely conservative counting. For example, Oxford University declares that it does not include anyone who received the Nobel Prize before arriving there, although there are very few laureates who joined Oxford after winning a prize.
The federal University of London is counted by individual constituent college in this table. The University of London and Imperial College London (which separated in 2007) together have a total of 72 affiliated Nobel laureates overall (including 7 Nobel laureates affiliated to the University of London International Programmes).
The University of California is also counted here by its individual campuses. The university as a whole is affiliated with a total of 59 Nobel Laureates.
A list of laureates' university affiliations is also maintained by the Nobel Foundation, which defines the awards by the affiliation at the time of the award. Many universities maintain their own tallies using widely divergent methodologies, most far narrower than what appears on this list.
Legend: Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, Literature, Peace, Economics.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, affiliation, university, list and/or nobel:
“Loves boat has been shattered against the life of everyday. You and I are quits, and its useless to draw up a list of mutual hurts, sorrows, and pains.”
—Vladimir Mayakovsky (18931930)
“Men seem more bound to the wheel of success than women do. That women are trained to get satisfaction from affiliation rather than achievement has tended to keep them from great achievement. But it has also freed them from unreasonable expectations about the satisfactions that professional achievement brings.”
—Phyllis Rose (b. 1942)
“It is well known, that the best productions of the best human intellects, are generally regarded by those intellects as mere immature freshman exercises, wholly worthless in themselves, except as initiatives for entering the great University of God after death.”
—Herman Melville (18191891)
“Thirtythe promise of a decade of loneliness, a thinning list of single men to know, a thinning brief-case of enthusiasm, thinning hair.”
—F. Scott Fitzgerald (18961940)
“Parents can fail to cheer your successes as wildly as you expected, pointing out that you are sharing your Nobel Prize with a couple of other people, or that your Oscar was for supporting actress, not really for a starring role. More subtly, they can cheer your successes too wildly, forcing you into the awkward realization that your achievement of merely graduating or getting the promotion did not warrant the fireworks and brass band.”
—Frank Pittman (20th century)
