Amoud University (Somali: Jaamacada Camuud) is a comprehensive public university in Borama, Somaliland. Founded in 1998, the university has grown to become one of the most prestigious institutions of higher learning in the country.

The idea to establish Amoud University came from four intellectuals working in the Gulf in 1994. They were concerned about the lack of higher education opportunities in Somaliland, and they wanted to create a university that would provide quality education to the people of their country. In 1996, the four intellectuals held a workshop in Borama to discuss their plans for the university. The workshop was attended by over 100 people, including representatives from the Somaliland government, businesses, and civil society. The participants at the workshop agreed to the proposal for the establishment of the university and adopted a resolution for its establishment by 1997.

Amoud University officially opened its doors in 1998 with 66 students in two faculties (Education and Business Administration), and three teachers. The university's first classes were held in rented classrooms in Borama. Despite its modest beginnings, Amoud University quickly grew in size and popularity. By 2008, the university had over 2,000 students and six faculties. The university also opened a second campus in Hargeisa, the capital of Somaliland.

In 2012, Amoud University became the first university in Somaliland to offer postgraduate programs. The university now offers a wide range of postgraduate programs in a variety of disciplines. Amoud University has been recognized for its quality education and research. The university has been ranked as one of the top universities in Africa.
