About University Of Ibadan
Established in 1948, the University of Ibadan, UI as it is fondly referred to, is the first University in Nigeria. Until 1962 when it became a full-fledged independent University, it was a College of the University of London in a special relationship scheme.
The University, which took off with academic programmes in Arts, Science and Medicine, is now a comprehensive citadel of learning with academic programmes in sixteen Faculties namely, Arts, Science, Basic Medical Sciences, Clinical Sciences, Agriculture, the Social Sciences, Education, Veterinary Medicine, Pharmacy, Technology, Law, Public Health, Dentistry, Economics, Renewable Natural Resources and Environmental Design and Management.
The Faculties of the Basic Medical Sciences, Clinical Sciences, Public Health and Dentistry are organised as a College of Medicine. The University has other academic units among which are:
A new National Institute for Maternal Child & Neonatal Health (NIMCNH) & Institute for Infectious Diseases are under construction. A new school of Business (UISB) is expected to take off later this year. The University, as part of efforts to fulfil a God-given mandate of promoting Nigeria’s development, established a Research Foundation (UIRF).
In response to emerging threats to peace and peaceful co-existence in Africa, the University established the Institute for Peace and Strategic Studies (IPSS) to provide actionable studies and solutions.
The University of Ibadan Postgraduate School is, well-acknowledged within and outside the country as one of the largest in Africa and the flagship of Postgraduate Education in Nigeria as it produces the much required human resources for the entire Nigerian University system, the Nigerian public and private sectors and beyond. The Postgraduate School enrolment takes about 50% of the entire student enrolment.
The University of Ibadan produces an average of 3,000 Masters & 250 PhDs every year. The University currently hosts the Pan African University Life & Earth Sciences Institute on behalf of the West African Subregion. This is an initiative of the African Union.

The main thrust of the University for the 21st century is to be a world-class institution for academic excellence geared towards meeting societal needs. Today, the University is consistently ranked among the prestigious Universities in the world
There are twelve Halls of Residence which provide accommodation for about 30% of the population of students in the regular studies mode; and three others under construction with the support of the FG Revitalisation Funds. The University has 1212 housing units, out of which 609 units are occupied by senior staff and 603 units by junior staff.
The University of Ibadan is, therefore, a truly complex organization. Its governance is based on the Committee System; all the Boards and Committees report to Council and/or Senate. In order to carry out its main functions of teaching, research and community service, the University has been providing to a large extent, basic services like electricity and water supply, security, health facilities and other municipal services to its staff and students.
