Circular to the University Community

The attention of the University Management has been drawn to the rumours being widely circulated that the students of the University are expected to vacate the campus.

We wish to assure all students that the University Academic Calendar for the 2017/2018 Academic Session is very much on course. As there are no plans to compel students to vacate the campus until the end-of year holidays, all members of the University community must be unanimous in the resolution to ensure that the Calendar remains sacrosanct.

The University Management therefore enjoins all students and staff to continue their normal activities in line with the University’s approved guidelines.

The University Management will like to assure all staff and students of their welfare and safety at all times.

Thank you

M. I. Omosule (Mrs.) Registrar
