The University of The Gambia was established by an Act of the National Assembly of the Gambia in March 1999.  The enactment, which was a bold step to fulfill a long-standing desire of the people of The Gambia and to respond to several years of advocacy both within and outside the country for a university, ended years of indecision on the university question.

The first Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Donald E.U Ekong was appointed and assumed office in October 1999. Since then, the University has had 3 Vice Chancellors. The First Gambian Vice Chancellor, Professor Muhammadou M.O. Kah was appointed as the University’s third Vice Chancellor in May 2009.
