The University of Valley Forge was founded in 1939 and is part of an international network of Assemblies of God colleges and universities.
As a private university with undergraduate, graduate, and lifelong learning programs, our mission is to prepare individuals for a life of service and leadership in the church and in the world.
Our community is small, close-knit, and diverse. Each member—student, faculty, and staff—supports and guides each other as we grow and develop intellectually, physically, spiritually, and socially.
Choosing a college or university requires information, guidance, and practical help. UVF welcomes the questions of future students and parents, and we partner with them throughout the entire process—from inquiries to campus visits to applying—so students have the support they need to make the right decision about their future.

UVF is ideally located in close proximity to historical Philadelphia, allowing students to explore all the city offers. Our suburban Phoenixville campus is a community-focused environment connected by a nature trail to a 44-acre park and close to local coffee shops and restaurants.
UVF has three unique opportunities to visit and experience life on our campus: Breakaway, Open House, and College For a Day. Each event has its benefits and fun; we can’t wait for you to attend one!
