Uva College Badulla (Uva Maha Vidyalaya) is a public school in Uva province, Sri Lanka which was founded in 1867. A national school, controlled by the central government (as opposed to the Provincial Council), it provides primary and secondary education. Uva College has supplied many undergraduates from Badulla District to local universities.
Uva College was the first school established in Uva province in 1867 by the Diocesan mission of Ceylon. It is situated in the heart of Badulla town. From the inception the college had two halls and two dormitories with a science laboratory. Adjoining the office was the principal's quarters. The first principal was Mr. William. At first there were only twelve students and of these eight were Tamils. Seven students entered university. There were also several girls attending Advanced Level classes.
