Stuyvesant University is located in New York City. It is presumably named after Peter Stuyvesant, a major figure in the early history of the city.
The University's colors are scarlet and gold.
In Season 6, Dean Venture applied to and was accepted at Stuyvesant University (thanks in part to the VenTech Bio-Bots enhancing his natural talents).
While on a pre-admission tour of the University's campus, Dean encountered the Brown Widow in his civilian identity as a campus tour guide. They also crossed paths with Tosh Tompkins, the secret identity of the boorish superhero Stars and Garters.
- While in the real world there is no Stuyvesant University in New York City, there is a Stuyvesant High School which is a college preparatory science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) focused liberal arts high school. It is highly exclusive in that less than 3% of all applicants get accepted each year.
