Eve University was formed in March of 2004, with the goal of serving the needs of players new to the Eve universe. Since that time it has gone from strength to strength and with over 1200 members currently enrolled, it makes us one of the largest corporations in Eve with thousands of graduates across the galaxy.

Eve University is a rarity in New Eden: A purely altruistic corporation. Every day, faculty and older students give freely to new players their most valuable resource: their time and guidance. This has made Eve University what may be the friendliest corp in the game.

We are a relaxed corporation, with an open door to new players (typically under 8 weeks old) who wish to learn. Faculty and mentoring positions are also available, and both students and Faculty are welcome to stay just for a "term", or longer if they wish to assist us in our mission.

Some of the benefits from joining...
  • Scheduled Classes on all aspects of life in New Eden.

  • Ad-Hoc Events run by experienced graduates.

  • Guest Lectures.

  • Group NPC Pirate hunts and Mining expeditions.

  • PvP combat lessons, including tackling, EWAR and scanning.

  • Guided mission and complex runs.

  • A skillbook program, providing the common books to students.

  • A library of videos and lessons to parts of the game.

  • Corporation research and production access.

  • Jump-clone access for all members.

  • Hangars stocked with common ships, modules and ammo for member use.

  • Special recruitment posts, from corporations wishing to recruit our graduates.

  • Extensive standings network, identifying the bad guys from the good guys before they act.

  • Supportive in-game and forum environment, always willing to answer your questions.
... and much more.

New Players
Come join a corporation whose sole interest is introducing you to Eve and making you a better player, and providing you the support needed in those early months. The only thing we ask is that you have finished Eve's introductory tutorial and follow-on missions - we can help you take it from there! Many fine capsuleers have started their career in Eve University, and you should check out our previous recruitment threads to hear the testimonials of players from all around Eve.

Experienced Players
Do you wish to give something back to the Eve community? Would like to give your game more meaning than the next wallet entry, dead NPC rat, or 0.0 system taken? Become a faculty member at Eve University. You will find teaching and mentoring new players a very rewarding experience, while still being able to enjoy the game. Our criteria for more experienced players is a willingness and desire to help and instruct new players, and to support Eve University's mission.

Applications are accepted from all stations - just look up Eve University in-game and click "Apply to Join" at the bottom of the window, alternatively apply in person at the Pator Tech School in the Aldrat system of the Metropolis region. The full step by step application process is available on our website. Please remember to respect Eve University’s mission - E-UNI is not a warehouse for alts, nor is it a flag to hide behind when spying or free supplies for your own corp, and suspicious members are tracked and will of course be removed.

Want to Know More?
Join the channel E-UNI and talk to some of our friendly members and students, as well as those willing to assist new players from other corporations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What rules do I have to follow while I am in Eve University?
A: Our Policies are available on our site, but the short version is that you shouldn't be an ass, and respect the rights of other members.

Q: Can you explain how the classes work?
A: All live classes are taught on our TeamSpeak server, and many involve practical elements. As well as these, we have a library of recorded classes, for those who were unable to make the class, or want to start learning straight away.

Q: How much do I pay to attend Eve University classes?
A: All our classes are free of charge to our members. And although currently there are no classes available for non-members, we have occasionally held public "introduction" classes in specific circumstances.

Q: Then how is Eve University funded?
A: Part of our income is provided by the 2.5% tax on mission rewards and bounties, which covers the core expenses such as office rent. However, the majority of the programs are run on donations from the Eve community, either in the form of ISK, modules, ships, blueprints and other resources.

Q: How long can I stay in Eve University?
A: There is no time limit on your stay in Eve University. However, most members want to explore the rest of the Eve universe and move on to other corporations to get a deeper knowledge of industry, PvP, trading or other professions after a couple of months.

Q: How much PvP is there, and when can I get involved?
A: A new member can get involved with practical PvP training almost immediately. While we do suggest you take one of the PvP basics classes, we have fleets which go pirate hunting and running around lo-sec space quite often. Even the newest pilots are a valuable asset in an E-UNI fleet, as within a few hours they are capable of 'tackling' the targets, keeping them in place for the big guns.

Q: What about wars?
A: While it is very unusual for Eve University to declare war, unfortunately it is not uncommon for us to be declared war on by those who do not know our track record. In these cases we switch gear to become almost entirely PvP focused and those who are not ready to fight are free to leave and return one the war ends. During this time, all non-PvP activity (mining, hauling, running missions) is suspended in order to deny the hostiles any targets of opportunity, and all resources are tasked to destroy the attackers with maximum prejudice, in order to allow us to return to teaching.

Q: This sounds like something I'd love to contribute to. How can I help?
A: You can join Eve University as a teacher if you feel that's something you'd like to do. If you are not interested in teaching but still would like to contribute, you can always donate to the Eve University corp in any form available. All modules, ships, skillbooks, blueprints and materials are more than welcome.

Eve Uni is without a doubt, the best corp to get started in Eve. Since I joined Eve Uni, I've been blown up by titans, learnt a lot, met a great bunch of friendly people and feel confident to move into the world of low sec PvP.

The best newb training corp, full stop

Does EU have a presence in 0.0?
Does EU as a whole or does a corp affiliated with EU participate in FW?
Does EU have a jumpclone service for members?

Eve university has no 0.0 presence and no goal to get presence there.
We have affliated corps into Faction War, eve university itself is not participating and as you can read in the opening post, we have access to jump clones

A bit more info on the 0.0 part...

E-UNI is neutral, which we define as not being allied with any group, and we have a rule of non-involvement. What this means in practice, is that we simply don't get involved with 0.0 politics and stay out of in any conflicts.

However, while we will not make the first move if you have no standings, after your hostility is proven, standings are set and our members are free to engage at will.

In general, 0.0 space is off limits to members without it being part of a specific project or event - this means that we can dedicate the majority of our resources to teaching, without having to fund POS networks and otherwise maintain that space.

Yes but if you have a negative security status you have to get it positive before you join us. No pirating while in the uni. You of course are free to go yarr on an alt, as long as you don't tell everyone its related to your uni character.

I'm Aurea, and have been with EVE University for some time, around 10 months totaling active and less active time. During my tenure, I've been host to a number of classes and experiences. I've learned a great deal about life in New Eden, from how to get set up with a supply of ISK in multiple ways, from mission running to trading, exploration to industry. I'm knowledgeable in multiple areas, including things as mundane as how to set up your overview to tactics for countering nano gangs.

All in all, I credit the amount of time I've spent in EVE to both what I've learned and the opportunities that have been presented to me by EVE University.

I've only been in uni for a week, but I learned a lot. Besides the standard group activities like mining and missions, they have classes and training courses which are fun and helpful. They also help you with acquiring skillbooks and equipment. Very nice place :)

I spent a bit over a year in Uni, starting out as a lowly noob as we all do and eventually progressing to the point where I was teaching classes on aspects of the game that are somewhat esoteric or overly specialized. The guidance I found early on and the friends I developed there now net me a network of friends and contacts that span nearly all of the major alliances and a lot of the lesser ones. There have recently been a few cases of politics and drama which have taken it's toll, but the core mission of the corp is still there and they are doing a good job of moving on in spite of it all. I recently moved on to another corp but will always recommend EU to any new player and even some lost not so new players.

I recommend Eve Uni to any new player- I certainly wish I'd found it sooner. You can learn the skills to be anything from a yarrhed pirate to the cuddliest carebear station trader, and you won't find a better group of people in an MMO. I joined the Uni to study PvP and fleet mechanics, and found myself immediately plunged into months of almost continuous wars, some of them against truly formidable opponents. All that fighting might not be the norm, but it was a heck of an education.

Having spent more than 2 years in Eve University, first as a student and later in various leadership positions, I encourage all new players to spend some time with the pilots of Eve University.

No matter your interests, inclinations or inhibitions, you will find like-minded folks, with both tons of relevant experience and the willingness to share it with you, without obligation or hesitation.

Stepping away from the Uni was the single hardest in-game decision I have ever made because of the people. Friends from literally around the world.

Once you fly Uni colors, you never really leave.

Hello everyone,

I have been in the uni for a long time and learned a great deal. The willingness to help out is overwelming, from other students and teachers alike. This is THE place to be for every new capsuleer. Some stay long (like me) some leave after a couple of weeks but ALL (new) players will benifit from a stay in this corp and alliance.

Joining EvE University is like wetting yourself in black pants, it gives a wonderfull warm feeling and noone notices it. Very Happy

EVE University is a great corporation for new players, and a great public channel to learn all sorts of things.

Whether your questions are, 'Should I fit a 75mm Railgun I instead of a Civilian Gatling Railgun on my Ibis?' or 'How can I best set up a complex reaction-chain between these moons?' you will find someone in E-UNI or its alumni who can help you. Both of these examples are questions that I have asked of E-UNI, and both of them were answered to my satisfaction at the time. Whether you love or hate their stance on policies, they do provide an invaluable service to the new players in EVE.

E-UNI is hands down the best place to learn and enjoy the game! If you're confused and overwhelmed by the often difficult mechanics of Eve Online, you will find the UNI a truly marvelous place. The people in E-UNI are eager to help, and you will never feel alone. Although the UNI has strict rules while you're a member, you will find many miners, industrialists, pvpers, pirates (!), mission runners, roleplayers, and just about every other type of player who were once a member of the UNI when they were young and green. Give it a shot and learn why E-UNI is the best corp for new players.

Eve University is full of great instructors, and a wonderful atmosphere for new players. You will learn how to fight, mine, manufacture, and navigate your way through this fantastic gaming environment. They will teach you to fly safe, but not too safe, because that would be boring.Very Happy

Over the weekend while CCP set a new PCU record, we broke the 1000 active member barrier and we are still going strong.

The more people, the more experience, is shared across the membership and the better you can learn, and with well over 100 members online each evening, it really couldn't be a better place for a new pilot.
