The University of Douala (UNIDOU - UDLA) was created on January 19, 1993 as part of a Cameroun governmental effort to decentralize and redistribute the student body of the University of Yaounde - until then the sole university in Cameroon.

The Douala University is housed on the campuses of l'Ecole Supérieure des Sciences Economiques et Commerciales (ESSEC - 1977) and l'Ecole Normale d'Enseignement Technique (ENSET - 1979).

The university is thus a combination of the already existing 1977 and 1979 university centers in Douala Cameroon

With Seventy two (72) vocational programs and a good number of specialty schools, the University of Douala now has over 45, 000 students and is one of the largest of Cameroon's six (6) states own universities.

Departments within the university are

  • Faculty of Arts and Humanities
  • Faculty of Law and Political Science
  • Faculty of Science
  • Faculty of Economics and Applied Management
  • Faculty of Industrial Engineering
  • Faculty of Medicine and Pharmaceutical Sciences
