Pacific Union College (PUC) is a private, coeducational liberal arts college located in Napa Valley, California. Its campus is located in the upper valley town of Angwin, eight miles north of St. Helena, California. It is the only four-year college in Napa County, California.

Pacific Union College was established in Healdsburg, California in 1882. It is the twelfth oldest institution of higher education in the state of California. In 1906, PUC changed its name from Healdsburg College to Pacific Union College. In 1909, the college moved to its present location in Angwin on Howell Mountain, overlooking California's Napa Valley wine country. The school was ranked America's Most Beautiful College in 2012 by Newsweek and The Daily Beast in part due to its enchanting setting in the Napa Valley.

Pacific Union College has a reputation for strong academics with personal attention from faculty, and the quality and success of its various pre-professional programs and its focus on undergraduate education. A residential college, it serves an almost exclusively undergraduate student body the overwhelming majority of which live on campus.

PUC is the only liberal arts college affiliated with the Adventist Church. It was also the first such college to become regionally accredited when the Northwest Association of Secondary and Higher Schools granted it accreditation in 1933.

In the fall of 2011, enrollment at Pacific Union College stood at over 1,500 students. Students choose from a variety of courses offered in over 70 concentrations of study offered by the school's 20 academic departments. The campus occupies 150 acres (0.61 km2) of the college's 1,900 acres (7.7 km2) property.
