Located in the U. S. Virgin Islands, UVI is a unique public university for the United States. It offers far more than just beaches and coconut trees. UVI is a “university of place” where lives are nurtured, talents developed, potentials groomed, ethical standards practiced, and students are given the opportunity to succeed.

If you are looking for an excellent education where you can interact with worldwide cultures in ways you never experienced before – while staying in the United States – UVI is for you. UVI students come not only from the U. S., but from as far away as Africa, Asia, Europe and South America. They’re attracted by our challenging academic programs, innovative research and excellent teaching.

Campus diversity is not the only reason we are called “globally interactive.” While developing green technologies, making breakthroughs in tropical and sustainable agricultural research and working to preserve Caribbean culture, our students are impacting the Virgin Islands and beyond. UVI produces graduates who are academically excellent, globally sensitive, entrepreneurially focused, emotionally and spiritually balanced, and committed to serving the world.
