Adikavi Nannaya University (Telugu: ఆదికవి నన్నయ విశ్వవిద్యాలయము) is a state university located in Rajahmundry in Andhra Pradesh, India. Adikavi Nannaya University was established in March 2006 through the Government of Andhra Pradesh Act No. 28 of 2006. It is named after Nannayya, the earliest known Telugu author. The university attends to the education needs of both the Godavari districts and now all the 74 post graduate and 350 degree colleges in these districts are affiliated to the university. These colleges were earlier affiliated to Andhra University.

The university initiated a program in Geo-Informatics and Petroleum Exploration, the first of its kind in Andhra Pradesh and one of the few in the country. In the second phase, keeping in view of the government policy of encouraging five-year integrated courses, the university designed and offered a new course in Mathematics and Computing, with the objective of providing trained programmes to the I.T. industry.
