The two major Units of critical operation on the campus are Electricity and Water Supply.
The University main source of electricity power is from IBEDC, we are connected to the 33 KVA national grid, it caters for all equipment power requirements and lightings. While the second source is via a cocktail of standby electrical generating plants with various capacities ranging from 500kva, 300 KVA, 100 KVA, 65KVA 30KVA that are provided to augment power supply in case of power failure from IBEDC. Furthermore, the university is presently exploring the option of renewable power supply via solar, to power critical areas of need, especially in the face of rising cost of fuel. Main auditorium, main library, ICT Centre are already placed on different capacities of solar power ratings.
Because of the peculiar terrain of the University, regular Water supply is reasonably achieved in the University via a cocktail of boreholes that are integrated with treatment plant to supply water and distribute same within the campus. The supply and distribution of water on the campus is mostly effected through the deployment ofa combination of submersible pumps of various ranges and surface pumps. A standby water tanker is deployed in case of emergency water needs.
