Boston University is a private, non-profit, research university in Boston, Massachusetts.
Hey there! Brown APIs is a set of web APIs for getting useful information about Brown. In general, to form a request, pick a method from below and look at some of the sample queries to get a feel for how the API works. Also, join the Brown APIs group on Facebook for FAQs and community support!
Cambridge University Press advances learning, knowledge and research worldwide
The world’s largest collection of open access research papers.
Cornell University has a pretty interesting eBird API. I do not see much else of APIs out of the institution, but will be keeping an eye out.
EdX is a massive open online course (MOOC) provider and online learning platform. It hosts online university-level courses in a wide range of disciplines to a worldwide audience, some at no charge. It also conducts research into learning based on how people use its platform. EdX differs from other MOOC platforms, such as Coursera and Udacity, in that it is nonprofit and runs on an open-source software platform.
FenixEdu is a modular software platform for academic and administrative management of higher education institutions. It is among the growing number of service providers targeting higher educational institutions using APIs.
Florida State Antarctic Research Facility Core Database
I just found the one arctic research API at Florida State University, but it is a sign there is more, and now they are on my radar. I think that Florida State University reflects another trend Im seeing with APIs being born out of university research.
George Washington University
George Washington University has an API out of the library, it is crude and simple, but allows for searching. There is also a rogue course API done by a student, which is always good to see. This is how many early API efforts look like at institutions in my experience.
I came across the Georgia Tech API at a gathering of Universities to talk about another project, but learned they had a pretty robust API defined used Swagger. Looks like it is still a work in progress, but a great model to look at.
Harvard University is devoted to excellence in teaching, learning, and research, and to developing leaders in many disciplines who make a difference globally. Harvard University is made up of 11 principal academic units.
Johns Hopkins University
Johns Hopkins University provides a Hub API, opening up API access to several campus resources including articles, events, galleries, issues, divisions, locations, tags, and topics as simple API endpoints with documentation. Not much else is provide via the portal.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is a private research university located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States.
MIT Media Lab
North Carolina State University
I only found the library API, and the dining API. I could tell there was more APIs somewhere, but will need to dig deeper.
There are only two basic APIs available here, but it is interesting that these were done by a university sanctioned organization, dedicated to delivering technology solution in support of the institution. Will keep an eye on what they are producing as well as other APIs to come out of the institution.
Purdue has APIs, but it looks like they have a very resource based one in their banner API, and another attempt at making it more accessible with modern approaches using Purdue.io. I also found another student API for food court dining--these are always cool to see.
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute just has an API coming out of the student union. I found evidence of other possible APIs, but nothing that student out like this student led one.
Rutgers University has a nice central portal, with a sensible list of API resources that are common across university API approaches, but it is still missing much before Id consider a viable central portal for the institution. Good start, but a definite work in progress.
San Jose State University
San José State University is a public comprehensive university located in San Jose, California, in Silicon Valley.
ScottyLabs is a technical club at Carnegie Mellon University. We organize educational events to help people learn how to make things, host workshops to give students the opportunity to work on projects outside of class, and develop applications and services for the campus community.
Syracuse University has the APIs, but just not exposed. They have a single page talking about, without much other detail. Work to be done.
Texas A&M University
Texas A&M University only has a set of geocoding, address, and mapping APIs, but they are a real nice set of services. It puts Texas A&M on my map, and Im sure I will find more.
The Ohio State University
The Ohio State University has a number of APIs, but they are really fragmented and all over the place. You can get at some as part of library services, and some as part of an data API, and there is another transportation related ones. Lots of API profiling work to be done, and pull out all the detail, and organizing it.
The University of Iowa
There are a number of housing, and science APIs available at The University of Iowa, but there is not central portal for access them. I could probably find more looking through their search. Definitely a work in progress effort.
The University of Texas at Austin
The University of Texas at Austin is a public research university and flagship institution of the University of Texas System.
The University of Minnesota has a really nice, central developer area for their APIs complete with Twitter account, but without access I cant really see what APIs are available. I did find another utility API for grouping and comparing of individuals on campus.
Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC)
La UOC és una universitat online que ofereix cursos de grau, postgraus, màsters i idiomes.
University of British Columbia
The University of British Columbia is a global centre for research and teaching, consistently ranked among the top 20 public universities in the world.
University of California Los Angeles (UCLA)
UCLA only has one API that I can find, a URL shortener API. The whole system is pretty well done though. I know there are other UCLA APIs I have come across, I just cannot find currently. Will keep looking.
University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB)
University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) is doing some pretty interesting work around APIs and governance using Swagger. The work is being done as part of campus CS, and the RaceLab. They dont have any APIs available, but are doing some real interesting work.
University of California, Davis
University of California, Davis provides a wealth of APIs as part of their IT operations. There is a complete identity and set of APIs for many aspects of campus operations, but still reflect a very IT driven operation, over a modern API movement.
University of Maryland
The University of Maryland is interesting because it has another, almost central API developer portal that is adjacent to regular IT operations. The simply call it UMD.io, and provide basic course, bus, mapping APIs. They also have a really interesting music composition API that needs more investigation.
University of Missouri
The University of Missouri is a public, land-grant research university in Columbia, Missouri.
University of North Texas
UNT is a student-focused, public, research university located in Denton, Texas. As one of Texas largest universities, we offer 103 bachelors, 86 masters and 38 doctoral degree programs within the universitys 13 colleges and schools.

University of Virginia School of Medicine
The University of Virginia School of Medicine only has the one research faculty directory API, but is enough of a start that I think it is worthy of recording. I will keep looking for other APIs that emerge at the school, and see if it expands beyond just this one API.
