VUU's main campus is located at Victoria Towers, 1-13 Jinja Road, in the central business district of Kampala, the capital and largest city of Uganda. The coordinates of VUU are 0° 18' 48.60"N, +32° 35' 21.00"S (Latitude:0.3135000; Longitude:32.589167). Plans are underway to relocate the main campus of VUU to a more spacious location in the future.

Overview

As of October 2013, VUU is a young university offering four undergraduate degrees in three faculties. Its campus is located in a high-rise tower in the central business district of Uganda's capital city. Because of changes in ownership in 2013, VUU is now a member of the Ruparelia Group of Companies. VUU is a Ugandan institution of higher education, owned by Ugandans and teaching courses accredited by Uganda's education authorities.

History

VUU was established in 2011 by Edulink Holdings Limited, a private company that invests internationally in tertiary institutions of higher education. From 2011 until late 2012, VUU was affiliated with the University of Buckingham (UB) in the United Kingdom, which awarded the majority of degrees offered at VUU.. However, VUU has a number of courses that it developed, teaches, and examines independent of UB. The degree certificates of the VUU courses are awarded by VUU. VUU was accredited by the Uganda National Council for Higher Education in October 2010. In 2012, the affiliation with UB was terminated.

In September 2013, VUU was purchased, for an undisclosed sum of money, by Sudhir Ruparelia, ranked the wealthiest individual in East Africa, by Forbes magazine in 2012. VUU became a member of the Ruparelia Group. Its campus relocated to Eagen Mansions, at 1-13 Jinja Road, in Kampala's central business district, which was renamed Victoria Towers.
