It is housed in campuses formerly belonging to the Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT) and the Anambra State University of Science and Technology (ASUTECH). These campuses provided a temporary accommodation before the new campus was completed along Enugu Road, Abakaliki.

The university's medical faculty was established in 1991 as ESUT's Faculty of Health Sciences. Many of its facilities were developed in response to a Guinea worm pandemic; the Abakaliki Specialist Hospital, created for this purpose, was remodelled to become Ebonyi State University's primary teaching hospital. It was subsequently granted accreditation by the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) for the training of medical students and resident doctors. Since it became part of Ebonyi State University, the medical school has received considerable funding from the Ebonyi government.

In 1985, the ASUTECH Edict No 20 of 1985, created a four campus structure and the Abakaliki Campus, housing Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine. Consequently, Abakaliki Campus took off with a pre-science programme and was later enabled to run courses in Agricultural and Basic Basic Medicine Sciences.

Egwu, Governor of Ebonyi State announced the upgrading of the University College to a multidisciplinary university and establishing statute received executive consent of His Excellency on January 14, 2000.
