Khairun University is an Indonesian public university in Ternate City, North Maluku. Named after a historical monarch of the Sultanate of Ternate, it was founded in 1964 initially as a partner of the Sam Ratulangi University in Manado. The university was nationalized in 2004, making it a state-operated institution.[1] In 2016, the university claimed a student count of 1,120 with 115 teaching staff, over double of 550 in 2014. The university offers both undergraduate and postgraduate programs.[2]

In 2017, following the prohibition of Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia, the university demanded all its teaching staff affiliated with the organization to resign.[3]
