Pentecost University College currently has three campuses. They are:

Main Campus
City Campus
Agogo Campus

Main Campus

The main campus of Pentecost University College is sited at Sowutuom, away from the hustle and bustle and inner city traffic of Accra. Sowutuom (which literally translates “hold your gun”) is within the western parts of Accra. The main PentVars campus is located in a quiet and serene area off the Kwashieman-Ofankor highway. The main campus is the hub of our undergraduate programmes.

City Campus

The city campus has been designated for our graduate and executive school. It is located at the plush Kama Conference Centre in Labone, a suburb of Accra. This prime location is to enable executives who are hard pressed with time easily access graduate and executive programmes.

Agogo Campus

The Agogo campus is situated at Agogo near Konongo in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. Located outside Accra, this Campus is purposely for group getaway seminars, conferences and retreats.
