Before we proceed to list down all the federal, state, and private universities in Nigeria I believe it would be better to know the differences between Nigeria Federal, State, and Private Universities.

Difference Between Nigeria Federal, State, And Private Universities

In terms of certification all NUC approved Nigerian universities; be it federal, state, and private awards Degree certificate upon graduation which is recognized nationwide, the main difference between them is just the school fees, admission competition, striking, and learning environment.

Federal Universities

This category is owned and sponsored by the federal government thereby making it the cheapest among the three, Nigerian federal universities school fees range from 20,000 Naira to 60,000 Naira, it is the most sorted thus making admission harder.

State Universities

This is owned by the state government and it is expensive as the school fees range from 100,000 Naira to 250,000 Naira, admission is usually mild.

Private Universities

This kind of university is owned by individuals or private organizations, the school fees are usually very expensive ranging from 300,000 thousand Naira way up to millions of Naira although its usual conducive learning environment and facilities make it worth it, getting admission into this kind of university is easier once the money is there as admission is less competitive.
