The University of Asmara (UoA) was a public university in Asmara, Eritrea. The nation's first university, it was founded in 1958 by the "Piae Madres Nigritiae" (Comboni Sisters). The school was meant to provide for the local population, though its initial enrollment in the 1950s was entirely Italian.[2] Over the course of its history it has been reopened and reorganised following political changes. In 2006 it was closed[clarification needed] and reorganized into other institutions such as the Eritrea Institute of Technology.[3][1]
