Historically, the definition of the
University is inevitably dynamically changed by the theories, culture and
social perspectives of different times. The university in the 21st century has an
obvious tendency to much more flexible, integrated and most importantly, civic.
This paper firstly clarifies the definition of the university; then the
relationships between the university and the city are discussed. Thirdly, the
civic university in U.K and U.S are separately reviewed. Lastly, the trend of
the university—civic—is summarised and the future work on how to make high
density university in 21st century increasingly civic is proposed.
