The Medical Services Unit


Brief History

The University took off from a temporary site, made up of three blocks of building meant for a primary school in Gwagwalada, tagged the “mini – campus”. Academic activities started on the mini – campus in 1990. In the same year, the University was allocated an expanse of land covering over 11,800 hectares along the Abuja – Abuja road for the development of its main campus.

You know, it is impossible to imagine how this picture would look like. I'd advise you cast your imaginations to something less ethreal :)

Convocation ground: Mini Campus

If programming did not exist, perhaps we'd be discussing how to journey to 36 states, letting them know a UniAbuja exists.

Main Campus

This absolutely has no meaning and is fundamentallly means to fill up this space. Try not to think too much.

There is no content to copy and paste here. Absolutely nothing. And i'm tired of the damned lorem ipsum text i see everywhere.

Our Location


The University now operates from both its Main Campus, along Abuja Airport Road, and the Mini – Campus in Gwagwalada. Currently, the Administrative Building and the Faculty of Arts are on the Main Campus. More faculties are expected to relocate to the Main Campus from Gwagwalada in due course. The distance learning offices of the University are located within the municipality(Garki) where contact sessions of the programme are also held.
