About KASU

The Kaduna State University was established under the Kaduna State Law Number 3 promulgated on 21st May 2004. The promulgation resulted from the obvious and felt need to boost higher education in the State and the country in general.

The underlying factor is that the demand for University education in Nigeria has, over the past few years, risen astronomically.

This has been the basis of reform regarding the establishment and ownership of Universities by both the public and the private sector. Since the reforms, many State and Private universities have been established.

The objective is to provide added opportunities for advancing the frontiers of learning through teaching, research, and community service by taking cognizance of the needs and aspirations of the people of Nigeria.
