The University of Yaoundé (French: Université de Yaoundé) was a university in Cameroon, located in Yaoundé, the country's capital.

It was built with the help of France and opened in 1962 as the Federal University of Yaoundé, dropping the "Federal" in 1972 when the country was reorganized.

In 1993 following a university reform the University of Yaounde was split into two (University of Yaoundé I and University of Yaoundé II) following the university branch-model pioneered by the University of Paris.
