With the proliferation of higher institutions in the country, it’s now imperative to give you a comprehensive list of private universities in Nigeria, their vice chancellors, websites and year of establishment.

This is very important now more than ever before as it will help you choose your preferred institution wisely and avoid falling prey to illegal universities whose certificates are worthless because they are not recognised by the relevant government regulatory body for Nigerian universities, the National Universities Commission, NUC.

The list contains all the 75 private universities in Nigeria approved by the NUC and they have been arranged alphabetically and without prejudice.

It also comprises the vice chancellors, websites and year of establishment of these private universities.
