You can download the PDF here too. According to the National Universities Commission (NUC), Nigeria presently has 43 Federal Universities, 47 State Universities, and 75 Private Universities. Remember that the NUC is the Agency tasked by the Nigerian Federal Government to regulate and act as a catalyst for positive change and innovation for the delivery of quality university education in Nigeria. The NUC has always warned the general public from time to time to first verify if a university is approved before patronizing them. Some of our friends and loved ones have fallen prey to some elements parading themselves as approved universities especially foreign ones, only for people to later find out that they are not approved by the NUC. We don’t want this to happen to you that is the reason we have gone to the NUC to obtain the full list of all approved Universities in Nigeria. As you will see from the list above below, Nigeria has a total of 40 different Federal Universities scattered across all the geo-political zones of the country; the country also has a total of 44 state Universities and 68 private universities.
