NaNo University is a program launched by NaNoWriMo in September 2010 for college and university students and for instructors teaching at that level. Over the years, more and more students have done NaNo for the first time at the university level or have continued doing NaNo in university after participating in high school. The OLL team recognized this and created special resources for students giving advice on how to get through the month while juggling school, along with tips on creating a NaNoWriMo club and getting funding for said club. NaNo University also provides advice for instructors such as how to organize the course, writing the syllabus, and handouts. The staff is also working on providing more resources, such as flyers, certificates, and a fact sheet for convincing the higher powers that a NaNoWriMo course needs to exist.

Beginning in 2010 university students and instructors had their own forums to share their experiences. Instructors teaching NaNoWriMo in K-12 classrooms are encouraged to use the Young Writers Program resources, while students in K-12 classrooms and writers under 13 should participate in YWP; however, writers 13 and over can participate on the main NaNoWriMo site. These forums are moderated by Heather Dudley and an OLL intern coordinating the program (Nora Coon in 2010 and Paige Knorr in 2011).
