Devoner University (DVU) is a private, non-sectarian research university with the main campus located in the city of Adustelan, Carraway Island. Founded in 1906, it is the largest private university on Carraway Island and the second largest overall, after the Adustelan City University system. In addition to on-campus schools and facilities, the University also manages several off-campus housing developments.
The school is internationally renowned for its cooperative education program which has often been favorably compared to those of Drexel University and Northeastern University in the United States.
The school athletics teams are collectively known as the Devoner Marksmen.
Devoner University - Quarry Pit Graduate Campus opened as part of the now defunct Ehrmantraut County Community College system in 1952. When the system ceased operations in 2018, Devoner University invested $300 million in converting the campus for graduate use, citing its proximity to another university property, the Elijah S. Crestman Memorial Hospital. The hospital was incorporated into the new campus, and the area as a whole adopted its current name and administration on January 4, 2019. It is today the university's flagship graduate medical campus.
It is located in the city of Adustelan near Quarry Pit which, while not an official neighborhood, straddles the border between the neighborhoods of Quinton and Bellamyville. The campus consists of a handful of buildings around the intersection of Rarity Street and Fischbach Avenue, all of which are connected via an underground tunnel system.
