About ADUN

The Admiralty University of Nigeria was established as a Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) through the joint efforts of Nigerian Navy Holdings (a subsidiary organization of the Nigerian Navy) and Hellenic Education Nigeria – (a private consultancy, with international educators as main partners).

The objectives of the University are: to expand the frontiers of knowledge in various academic disciplines, in Nigeria; to use University education as a tool towards development and the enhancement of human welfare; to meet the challenges of nation building in Nigeria; and to address the acute shortage of personnel in various sections of the economy in Nigeria. As part of its declared National Policy on Education, the Federal Government of Nigeria hopes to provide education to all citizens.

At the tertiary level, as with all levels, the Government has solicited and encouraged private participation to reduce its burden of educating all Nigerians. It is in heed to this national call and in tandem with their own goals and aspirations that the above mentioned education partners have established this new University.


The vision of the Admiralty University of Nigeria is “to be internationally recognized as a University with global perspective that meets the dynamic needs of society by educating leaders who shall embrace value creation for the good of mankind”.


The mission of the Admiralty University of Nigeria is “to advance the frontiers of human knowledge by providing leadership in teaching and learning, research and service using cutting edge technologies to meet current educational demands in order to surmount the myriads of challenges facing humanity “.


The main campus of the Admiralty University of Nigeria is located on 30 acres of land in Ibusa (Oshimili South Local Government Area of Delta State), about 20 km from Asaba, the Delta State Capital. The University also has another campus located on 203 acres of land at the existing site of the Nigerian Navy Engineering College, in Sapele (Sapele Local Government Area).
