Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko (AAUAA) is a Nigerian university, owned and operated by the Ondo State government.
Adekunle Ajasin University was first established as Obafemi Awolowo University in March 1982 by the then government of the old Ondo State, headed by the late Chief Michael Adekunle Ajasin. The immediately succeeding military government of Navy Commodore Michael Bamidele Otiko changed its name to Ondo State University in 1985. Its relocation to Akungba Akoko in the new Ondo State became imperative in 1999, following the creation of a new state out of the old Ondo State three (3) years earlier in October 1996.
The bill backing the relocation was signed into law by the then Governor of the State, Chief Adebayo Adefarati, in November 1999, and that prompted the movement of a crop of workers from the old site in Ado-Ekiti to Akungba Akoko on 1 December 1999. The bill for yet another name change, this time to Adekunle Ajasin University, in order to immortalise the late Governor Ajasin, was signed into law by Governor Adefarati in 2004 following the demise of the former governor Ajasin.
The Adekunle Ajasin University has an estimated student population of about 23,456 students spread across its seven (7) faculties.
Adekunle Ajasin University is fully accredited and recognized by the National University Commission (NUC) of Nigeria.
