Niger Delta University which started academic activities in the 2001/2002 session, had its pioneer set of graduating students in the 2004/2005 academic year. Although, the student population was only 1,039 at inception, this has increased to over 10,000 in 2009/2010 session. Given the fact that the university maintains the quota provided by the National Universities Commission (NUC), it may continue to be a relatively small but efficient one.

Niger Delta University is located in Wilberforce Island, about 32km from the state capital, Yenagoa, and is made up of three campuses; the Gloryland campus (main campus), the College of Health Sciences campus and the temporary campus of the Faculty of Law in Yenagoa. A new campus, which is really an extension of the Gloryland campus, is being developed.

The establishment of the university through a Law of 2000 is no doubt a significant turning-point in the educational, indeed socio-economic history Bayelsa State in particular and Nigeria in general.
