This is to inform all staff and students that the Senate, at its 59th Regular meeting held on Thursday, 14th January, 2021, resolved that the University should re-open for continuation of academic activities.

By this resolution, all students are expected back on campus on Sunday, 17th January, 2021, while lectures will commence on Monday, 18th January, 2021. 



The 2019/2020 Academic Session continues from Monday, 18 January, 2021 and ends on Friday, 6th August, 2021.

The University Management has magnanimously extended the period for sessional registration to Friday, 29th January, 2021. Students who are yet to register, are therefore advised to take advantage of the two weeks grace period to pay up their outstanding school charges and complete their course registration.

Defaulters in the payment of school charges/registration would not be allowed to participate in any examination. (NO PAYMENT/REGISTRATION, NO EXAMINATION).

The detailed revised Academic Calendar can be accessed via the University website.

All staff and students must endeavour to observe all the prescribed COVID-19 protocols, which include the wearing of face masks, physical distancing, as well as hand washing/sanitizing at regular intervals.

All students must come along with enough face masks (not less than ten (10) pieces) and their personal hand sanitizers.

The University will be strict with regards to her policy of “NO FACE MASK, NO ENTRY”. In other words, no one would be allowed into the University premises or any office within the University without wearing a face mask.

The FUPRE COVID-19 Task Force, comprising both staff and student marshals, has been charged with the responsibility of ensuring compliance to all COVID-19 protocols within the University. Kindly cooperate with the members of the Task Force in the discharge of their duties in promoting the safety of all. 


The University uses this medium to welcome back all staff and students, and earnestly hopes that all would adhere strictly to the COVID-19 safety guidelines, so as to curtail its spread and enjoy robust health throughout the session and beyond. 


Thank you.
