The history of the Registrar’s Office of Obafemi Awolowo University dates back to 1962 when the then University of Ife was founded by the Government of the Western Region headed by Chief Obafemi Awolowo.  The Registrar’s Office since inception has contributed immensely to the much-celebrated greatness of the University.

We provide real-time information for timely decision-making and answer inquiries with confidentiality and integrity for our Students, Faculty, and Administrators, while facilitating the achievement of the vision and mission of the University. We also provide timely support for the Directorates to deliver high quality service towards achieving a world class standard at Great Ife.

We are committed to supporting the goals and objectives of the founding fathers of the University by working together to recognize and meet the needs of our students and staff through mutual respect and partnership.

With best wishes,

D. O. Awoyemi
Registrar and Secretary to Council
