Los Angeles Valley College is a community college located in the Valley Glen district of Los Angeles, California in the east-central San Fernando Valley. The school is a part of the Los Angeles Community College District.

The community college is adjacent to Grant High School. Often called "Valley College" or simply "Valley" by those who frequent the campus, it opened its doors to the public on September 12, 1949, at which time the campus was located on the site of Van Nuys High School.[1] The college moved to its current location in 1951, a 105-acre (0.42 km2) site bounded by Fulton Avenue on the west, Ethel Avenue/Coldwater Canyon Boulevard on the east, Burbank Boulevard on the south, and Oxnard Street on the north.

When the Metro Orange Line opened on October 29, 2005, Valley College received its own stop, the Valley College station, on the line, located at the intersection of Burbank Blvd and Fulton Ave. The closest campus buildings are less than a 5-minute walk away from the station.
