The University of Carabobo (Spanish: Universidad de Carabobo) is an autonomous, public university of Venezuela located in Valencia, Venezuela. It offers graduate and postgraduate studies in different areas. The university offers a lot of green spaces for student recreation, as well architectural art around the faculties, a theater, and two dining halls. There are around 65,000 students, mostly coming from the central part of the country.
The University was reopened in 1958 after the coup d'état which ended the Perez Jimenez dictatorship. It acquired the former railway station at Camoruco, some 3 km from the city center, which had become redundant with the closure of the rail service to Puerto Cabello. The converted railway station continues to be the seat of the "Rectorado" of the University.
