Ekiti State University started with a campaign promise by Chief Adekunle Ajasin led civilian government of the Ondo State in January 14,1981, with a 16-member planning committee set up.
The outcome and recommendations by the 16 men committee led to the establishment of the University named Obafemi Awolowo University, Ado-Ekiti with the appointment of Prof. I.O. Oladapo as the first Vice Chancellor with Chief B.A. Ajayi, as the head of council on March 28,1982.
Although it later changed to Ondo State University and much later Ekiti State University.
The University started with 136 students, cut across the faculties of Science, Social Science and Arts.
In 1983/84 session, the university introduced new courses to boost the existing faculties such as Chemistry, Philosophy, Geology, French, Biology, Yoruba studies, Religious studies, Political Science and Psychology.

Note: According to history, (Wikipedia) in 1984, the ownership of the University came under the military administration of Ondo State since the governance of the country came under the military junta. In 1985, the government as proprietor of the university cancelled the multi-campus and non-residential policy of the university and changed the name to Ondo State University, Ado-Ekiti. (The change of the University’s name did not affect the site/location of the campus at Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, Nigeria.
Although, that arrangement has been abolished as it is called Ekiti State University today.
