University of Yaoundé

The University of Yaoundé is a leading university in Cameroon, located in Yaoundé.

It was built with the help of France and opened in 1962 as the Federal University of Yaoundé, dropping the "Federal" in 1972 when the country was reorganized.

In 1993 following a university reform the University of Yaounde was split into two (Université de Yaoundé I and Université de Yaoundé II).
