The University of Ibadan, popularly known as UI, is the oldest and one of the most prestigious universities in Nigeria. Although the university is not the first university founded in Nigeria, it is the first university in Nigeria that was founded

as an independent university.

It is also the first university in Nigeria to be a post-secondary educational institution. The University of Ibadan is located in Ibadan, the capital city of Oyo State. The institution has the number designation "001" as a mark of its significance in the Nigerian education system.

The Nigerian Federal Government ensured that the institutional name ("University of Ibadan") became synonymous with its unique status by also giving the institution its key designation as the one and only entity with the number, thus forever distinguishing it from other universities in Nigeria.
