Welcome to Kaduna State University

History of KASU:

The Kaduna State University (KASU) was established under the Kaduna State Law No. 3 promulgated on 21st May, 2004. The promulgation was a consequence of the obvious and felt need to boost higher education in the State and the country in general. The underlying factor is the fact that the demand for University education in Nigeria has, since 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 vision of Kaduna State University is to become a University of world class standard with Excellence in Applied Sciences ans Sustainability studies.


The mission of of Kaduna State University is to provide an all-round university education of the highest standard for the development of the individual and the state, while inculcating the spirit of love, tolerance, understanding and unity in the state in particular and the country in general.
