The history of the Department is tied to the establishment of Enugu Campus of the University of Nigeria in 1961. The University of Nigeria was formally opened on 7th October, 1960. The former Nigeria Collage of Arts, Science and Technology Enugu was incorporated into the University of Nigeria in 1961and its building and facilities now form Enugu Campus of the University. The College of Medicine and Faculties of Business Administration, Environmental Studies and Law are located at the Campus.
The Registrar’s Office, Enugu Campus which is an extension of the main Registry’s Office at Nsukka Campus was created to serve the Academic Departments on the Campus by rendering efficient, qualitative and unalloyed services to all and sundry and at all times.
