The study examined the impact of TETFund Interventions in Nigerian Universities and its implications for sustainable development with special attention on EBSU. Content Analytical Approach was adopted while Public Goods Theory was used as a theoretical framework.The study reviewed the contributions of scholars in this field.Data were extensively sourced from documentary papers from which the three major objectives of the study were accomplished.The study finds that TETFund Interventions in Nigerian Universities particularly EBSU have impacted positively on the infrastructural and human development of the institutions; the implications of this for sustainable development is also positive.The study recommends amongst others, a reduction and/or total elimination of unhealthy bureaucratic bottlenecks involved in accessing TETFund; utilization of honest and competent contractors in executing TETFund projects and involvement of donor agencies to assist governments in funding tertiary education in Nigeria.This, if tenaciously adhered to, will launch Nigerian Universities to a better footing.
