Over the past few years, the advancement of technology in universities have led to rise in the number of vulnerabilities in University computer Network (UCN). To ensure robustness and hardness of UCN, an efficient Vulnerability Management System is required. The focus of current work is on the importance of vulnerability management in a UCN. A plethora of tools are used for vulnerability scanning and assessment. This paper also focuses on the implementation of vulnerability scanning tools on UCN. Assessment of scan results is done to identify vulnerabilities in the network that need to be resolved on priority basis. Based on the scan results obtained after scanning the network using scanning tools, the decision can be taken to mitigate the vulnerabilities on priority basis. Vulnerability Management in a UCN is a stepwise procedure that needs to be implemented to keep the network secure. An effective VM framework is important and inevitable to prevent cyber security breaches in a UCN as it regularly checks for new vulnerabilities on and also provide solutions to remediate or resolve the vulnerabilities. The scanning tools used for the current work were Nmap and Nexpose. Nmap was used for information gathering of network and Nexpose was used for scanning the network for vulnerability detection
