Universitas Pembangunan Nasional (UPN) ”Veteran” Jakarta was found in 1963, by the Veterans of Independence Warriors of the Republic of Indonesia, to educate the life of the nation, so as to avoid all types of colonialism. It was anticipated by the founders that the best way to change human behavior, attitude, and thinking ability is only through education.

UPN "Veteran" Jakarta as an educational institution that has been recognized by the community, located on Fatmawati Hospital Street, Pondok Labu, South Jakarta, is a university managed by the Defense and Security Ministry of the Republic of Indonesia. Subsequently, it changed its status to become a private university in 1995 under the auspices of the General Sudirman Foundation (YKPBS) which later in 2007 was changed to the Warrior Housing Welfare Foundation (YKPP).
