The Catanduanes State University (CSU) is an institution of higher learning in the province of Catanduanes in the Philippines. It was established on June 19, 1971 by virtue of Republic Act 6341, authored by Catanduanes Congressman Jose M. Alberto, which converted the Virac National Agricultural and Trade School into the Catanduanes State Colleges. On July 8, 1972, Republic Act 6590 provided for opening of additional courses at CSC.

The courses are Associate of Arts in Nursing, Associate of Arts in Education, Associate in Commerce, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science in Agriculture, Bachelor of Science in Forestry, Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, Bachelor of Science in Commerce, Bachelor of Science in Business Education, Bachelor of Science in Education, Master of Arts Education and Master of Arts Commerce.

Located in the provincial capital Virac, CSU primarily serves Catandunganons, the residents of Catanduanes. Students from other provinces in the Bicol Region (Region V) and the Visayas also enrol.

The CSU has already produced national topnotchers in the field of Civil engineering, Nursing, Midwifery, Agriculturists and Education. However, the most notable performance is in the field of Civil Engineering where it has already produced 24 Civil Engineer Board topnotchers since 1992. Three of them are Top 1.
