The university was founded in 1955 by Nnamdi Azikiwe.

A law to establish a university in the Eastern Region of Nigeria was passed on the 18th of May 1955. While that day marks the precise commencement of the history of the University of Nigeria, the enactment of this law by various Nigerian leaders was inspired particularly by the then Premier of the Eastern Region, Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe.


UNN was formally opened on 7th October 1960, as the climax to the Nigerian independence celebrations in the Eastern Region. Her Royal Highness, Princess Alexandra of Kent, representing Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at the Nigerian independence celebrations, performed the opening ceremonies and laid the foundation stone of one of the university’s early buildings. It is the first distinguished and autonomous university in Nigeria based on the American education system. It is Africa’s first land-grant university and one of Nigeria’s five most prestigious universities.
