Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti, also known as ABUAD, is a private university located in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, southwestern Nigeria. The university was founded in 2009 by its founder Afe Babalola (Businessman, lawyer and philanthropist). Before Afe Babalola University Ado-Ekiti was issued a provisional license by the Federal Government of Nigeria, it went ahead to construct its College buildings and College Hostels and Staff Quarters. ABUAD operates on a single campus that is 130 hectares of land at an altitude of over 1500 feet above sea level.

Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti is the first Private University in Nigeria to take-off on its permanent site with all human and material resources ready. ABUAD is the first university both public and private to secure a 100% accreditation in all its 46 programmes presented to the National Universities Commission (NUC). No university in Nigeria ever gained full accreditation in Medicine and Health Sciences in less than ten years of existence; something ABUAD did in just 5 years of existence.
The National Universities Commission (NUC) was so impressed by ABUAD that it described the university; “a miracle, model, reference point and benchmark” for other universities. Finally, Afe Babalola University prides itself as the highest private employer of labour in Ekiti State. This is because apart from employing academic and non-academic staff, the institution also has 1,000 hectares of land dedicated to the cultivation of grains. ABUAD started with a total of 101 students. This number has risen over the years and the university now has over 8,500 enrolled students and a staff of about 1255.

Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti, has several academic and non-academic facilities for its students. These facilities include conference halls, an auditorium, a teaching hospital, student and staff accommodation services, a sports centre, a restaurant, a planetarium, a farm, a library, a bakery and a water processing plant.
