The National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) was first established in 1983, suspended in 1984 and finally reborn in 2002 by an Act of 1993, which provides amongst others that the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is the Visitor to the University.

The University is governed by the Council while the highest academic body is the Senate with the Vice-Chancellor as its Chairman. The Registrar serves as the Secretary to Council and Senate bodies.

The Registry Department’s primary responsibility is to provide support services in the General Administration of the University with emphasis on Council affairs, Senate matters, recruitment of Staff, Students’ admission/welfare, Staff welfare and other related activities.
