This article provides a list of all the private universities in Nigeria, based on the information we gathered from the official NUC website.

There are several private universities in Nigeria; however, they do not all possess NUC accreditation / licence to operate.

The National Universities Commission (NUC), which serves as the regulatory and accreditation body for universities in Nigeria, is responsible for ensuring all private universities in Nigeria meet certain requirements.

In recent times, the NUC has granted licences to individuals, corporate bodies and religious bodies to establish private universities in the country.
