All Unity schools in Nigeria are also known as Federal Government Colleges (FGC), and admission into these Federal Government Colleges is based on a quota system; in this quota system, 30% of prospective students are admitted based on merit irrespective of their state of origin; another 30% are admitted from other states; of the Federation, another 30% from the host state; and then, the final 10% are admitted based on exigency.

Before the Federal Government built these existing Federal Government Colleges, there existed King’s College and Queen’s College which were both established in the colonial era. Both schools are the first unity schools in Nigeria and they’re both located in Lagos State.

After Nigeria gained independence from Great Britain, there were three unity schools built by the Federal Government in Warri, Enugu and Sokoto. After these, the Federal Government in 1973 commenced building other unity schools in all the states across the country.

There are currently 104 unity schools in the country and we have compiled a list of all of them in the six geopolitical zones of the country. In no particular order, below is the list.
