University of Lagos

Founded in 1962, the University of Lagos has, for over 5 decades, provided qualitative and research-oriented education to Nigerians and all those who have entered its domain in search of knowledge.

Over the last fifty years the University has pursued this mission with vigour, excellence and panache.
