Local nameUniversity Of Jaffna
LocationJaffna, Sri Lanka

The University of Jaffna is a public university in the city of Jaffna in Sri Lanka. Established in 1974 as the sixth campus of the University of Sri Lanka, it became an independent, autonomous university in 1979. Like all public universities in Sri Lanka, UoJ receives the bulk of its funding from the University Grants Commission, part of the Ministry of Higher Education in Colombo. The UGC and the central government therefore exert a great deal of control over the university.

UoJ has two campuses — the main campus in Thirunelvely in Jaffna and a second campus in Vavuniya. It also has facilities in Ariviyal Nagar near Kilinochchi, Kaithady and Maruthanarmadam near Chunnakam. It has ten faculties and thirteen other academic units/centres. The university offers undergraduate and postgraduate courses that award various degrees.
