The University of Nizwa was established in 2002 by the decree of Sultan Qaboos as the first non-profit university in the Sultanate of Oman.


The university was granted legal status by ministerial decision No. 1/2004 on January 3, 2004. The first class of 1,200 students, 88% of whom were Omani women, was inaugurated on October 16, 2004.


The current campus is located near the base of the famous Jabal al-Akhdhar in Birkat al-Mouz, 20 km NW of Nizwa. The construction of a new campus, located near the new Farq-Hail highway began in March 2010.


The university is currently in the final stage of institutional accreditation in accordance with the academic standards established by the Oman Academic Accreditation Authority.
