List of Federal, State & Private Universities in Nigeria

This page contains the list of Federal, States and Private Universities in Nigeria that are accredited by the Nigerian Universities Commission alongside their year of establishment and official contact websites.

According to the National Universities Commission (NUC), the total number of accredited Nigeria Universities can be classified into forty (40) Federal Universities, forty-four (44) State Universities, and Sixty-eight (68) Private Universities. Meanwhile, The National Universities Commission (NUC) is the major accreditation and regulatory body tasked by the Federal Government of Nigeria to enforce uniform standard and sets the admissions capacity of every university in Nigeria.

Given this task, the NUC has always warned the general public to ensure they verify if a university is approved before patronizing them. However, several students have fallen prey to some fraudulent groups/institutions parading themselves as approved universities (especially foreign ones), only for people to later find out that they are not approved by the NUC.

To save you this hassle, we have taken the time to compile the verified full list of all the Nigerian Universities approved by the NUC. Also, we are committed to updating this list as changes are made within the Nigerian Educational system. We hope you find this useful.
