5 things you must know about University of uyo UNIUYO

The University of Uyo was
founded in 1991 by the Federal
Government of Nigeria. At the
time, there existed in Uyo the
University of Cross River State
which was established in 1983 by the then
Cross River State Government.
In 1987 Akwa Ibom State with
headquarters at Uyo was created out of
the Cross River State and from that time
up to the time of Federal Government
take-over in 1991, the University was
jointly owned by Akwa Ibom and Cross
River State Governments.
When first proposed by the President, and
Commander-in-Chief of the Armed
Forces, the University was to be a Federal
University of Technology (FUT) and the
Campus of the University of Cross River
State at Uyo was to be the nucleus of the
proposed University.
Following representations and series of
implementation strategy meetings, it was
finally resolved by a letter dated 24th
September 1991 that “the Federal
Government has decided that University
of Cross Rivers State should be converted
into a Conventional University instead of a
FUT”. Academic activities commenced in
1991/92 session.
What is today called the University of Uyo
has a humble but unique historical
metamorphosis. The campus where the
University of Uyo is situated started in the
1930’s as a practising school and became
a Teacher Training College in the 1940’s. It
was upgraded to Advanced Teachers’
Training College in the 1960’s.
In 1975, it became a College of Education
and was converted to the University of
Cross River State (UNICROSS) in 1983.
In 1991, the erstwhile University of Cross
River State assumed a new status and
nomenclature called the University of
Uyo, a Federal University. It is a citadel of
learning, research and community
The University is located in the heart of
Uyo, capital of Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria.
Uyo is accessible by road and there are
two International Airport within 100km
radius – the Margaret Ekpo International
Airport, Calabar, Cross River State and the
Ibom International Airport in Uyo,Akwa
Ibom State.
The University runs a multi-campus
system namely: the Main Campus, the
Town Campus and Annex Campus, the
College of Health Sciences Campus and
the Ime Umanah Campus.
Though a third generation University in
Nigeria, the University of Uyo is
competing favourably with most first
generation Universities in Nigeria and has
recorded various strides.
