Abstract: We characterize those classes $ \mathcal{C}$ of separable Banach spaces admitting a separable universal space $ Y$ (that is, a space $ Y$ containing, up to isomorphism, all members of $ \mathcal{C}$) which is not universal for all separable Banach spaces. The characterization is a byproduct of the fact, proved in the paper, that the class $ \mathrm{NU}$ of non-universal separable Banach spaces is strongly bounded. This settles in the affirmative the main conjecture from Argyros and Dodos (2007). Our approach is based, among others, on a construction of $ \mathcal{L}_\infty$-spaces, due to J. Bourgain and G. Pisier. As a consequence we show that there exists a family $ \{Y_\xi:\xi<\omega_1\}$ of separable, non-universal, $ \mathcal{L}_\infty$-spaces which uniformly exhausts all separable Banach spaces. A number of other natural classes of separable Banach spaces are shown to be strongly bounded as well.
