Victoria University 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.
The university however, has developed a number of courses that it teaches and examines independently of UB. The degree certificates of the VUU courses are awarded by Victoria University itself. It was accredited by the Uganda National Council for Higher Education in October 2010. In 2012, the affiliation with UB was terminated.
In September 2013, it was purchased for an undisclosed sum by Sudhir Ruparelia, ranked the wealthiest individual in East Africa, by Forbes magazine in 2012. It then 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
It has different faculties of Faculty of Business and Management, Faculty of Science and Technology, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Health Sciences and Petroleum and Energy Studies
