- "Go Beyond! Plus Ultra!"
- ―U.A.'s official motto
It is one of the primary settings in which the story takes place.
U.A. is the #1 ranked high school for heroics and is considered as the top Hero Academy in Japan. Students are separated based on their abilities into specific Departments and Classes - A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, and K. At the entrance, there is a security wall nicknamed the "U.A. Barrier" that automatically closes if a person does not have a Student ID Card or Special Entry Permission ID. Many precautions have been made to keep members of the press and Villains out.
U.A. was originally a day school, but it was later turned into a boarding school.
U.A. executes a 6-day school week where the only day off is Sunday.

Department of Heroes

These students belong to Classes A and B.
Department of General Education
Students who don't make the cut for the hero department are included in this department. It boasts a top-notch education with an eclectic lineup of teachers. The department of general education supports students aiming for college and other pursuits. It is also possible for students with exceptional grades to be transferred to the hero department.
These students belong to Classes C, D, and E.

The lessons themselves depend on the department but the general daily schedule is as follows:
|Period||Start Time||End Time|
The U.A. High School student uniform consists of a long-sleeve, button-up white shirt, a gray jacket with blue-green stripes, and a red tie. The boys uniform includes dark blue-green pants while the girls uniform includes a dark blue-green skirt.
The U.A. P.E. uniform is a pair of dark blue pants with white vertical lines going up the legs and a dark blue short sleeve shirt with white lines that form the letters 'U' and 'A'. The winter variation of the gym uniform consists of a long-sleeved shirt.
While U.A. students are required to wear this uniform, it seems the faculty is lax about enforcing students to wear the uniform properly. Katsuki Bakugo wears his uniform with the top buttons undone, no tie, and his pants sagging. Izuku Midoriya wears his tie not tied properly.
- U.A. (雄英 yūei?) is the inverted kanji for "hero" (英雄 eiyū?).
- The school's motto "Plus Ultra" is Latin for "further beyond" and is the national motto of Spain.
