Holy Angel University is a private Roman Catholic research university in Angeles City, Pampanga, Philippines. Founded in June 1933 by Don Juan Nepomuceno and co-founded by Fr. Pedro Paulo Santos, who was later named as the Archbishop of Cáceres, is considered the first lay-founded Catholic school as well as the first co-educational Catholic high school.[2] With a student population of over 21,000, it is the largest private institute of education with the largest student population in a single campus in Central Luzon.

The national government recognizes the institution as among the country's top universities in terms of academic excellence when the Commission on Higher Education renewed the university's Autonomous Status. This follows the acquisition of an international accreditation from the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE)-the only school in the Philippines and the Far East to have done so. CHED has also declared seven programs as centers of development, namely, Teacher Education, Hospitality Management, Information Technology and Computer Science, Business Administration, Civil Engineering, Industrial Engineering, and Electrical Engineering.

Dr. Luís María. R. Calingo began his term as the University President on June 1, 2015, taking over from Engr. Geromin T. Nepomuceno, Jr. who served as the Acting President upon the resignation of Dr. Villanueva in June 2014.


The university sits in an 8-hectare urban campus. The university campus features the Epiphany of Angels Park that has an exhibit of the Seven Archangels and the Holy Guardian Angel. The university houses the original image of the Holy Guardian Angel commissioned by Don Juan Nepomuceno in the University Chapel. The University library is housed at the second and third floors of the San Francisco de Javier building; along with the University theater in the ground floor and the chambers of the University President in the fourth floor.

The university is set to open its Alviera campus in Porac, Pampanga which is expected to be finished by the year 2020.


As a Roman Catholic learning institution, aside from the major and professional subjects, all undergraduate students are required to take 12 units of Catholic Theology classes. The students are also required to attend 8 units of physical education class, and a choice from ROTC, civic welfare service training (CWTS) and literacy training service (LTS).

Based on the strength of its academic programs and quality of services, HAU has been given an Autonomous Status by the Commission on Higher Education (CHEd), as well as Accredited Status by the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU) and as the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE).

The university is home to eight undergraduate colleges, with the School of Business and Accountancy as the oldest. The university also has a high school and laboratory elementary school.
