List of Universities in Nigeria – Address and Contact Details

List of Universities in Nigeria – One of the good things about the Nigerian educational sector is it blessed with vast number of tertiary institutions who within themselves claim superiority in standard over another. Nigeria, a nation consisting of 36 states with half of the country’s revenue coming from the sales of crude oil, is resourceful enough to expand tertiary level of education to reach every sub-region of the country. The growing population of admission seekers mounted pressure on the carrying capacity of both federal and state universities which prompted to government to issuing license to individuals, cooperate and religious bodies to operate private universities in the country.

The National University Commission (NUC) is the only official body in Nigeria that approves an academic center and gives proper accreditation. Below is the list of all approved Federal, State and Private universities in the country. Also included are some of their location and contact details.
