About Us


To deliver quality education by creating a virtual campus of the University beyond its physical location to meet the changing needs of the learner and society through integrated education, innovative and cost effective use of application and cutting-edge technologies in the delivery of excellent academic and other professional services.

Our Background

With a mandate to combine the conventional system with a distance learning programme, the University of Abuja is set up, not only to provide instructional, research and public service programmes appropriate to a University of high standing, but to operate a strong and virile distance learning component. Essentially, our philosophy is to remove barriers and expand opportunities to education to those whom for one reason or the other could not acquire education through the conventional university education system. Located in the capital city of Nigeria, the University directs its activities towards the needs of students from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.


“To be a centre of excellence in the provision of quality access to and availability of distance learning educational contents through innovative technology-based services to enhance teaching and learning.”
