Directorate of Physical Development, Work & Services

The Directorate of Physical Development, Works and Services (DPDW&S) is the sole directorate in the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) charged with the responsibility of ensuring Physical Development and Maintenance of the University’s properties and physical assets nationwide, which basically include accommodation, water supply, electricity supply and some other utility services including environmental sanitation, transport and logistics.

A Brief History of the Directorate
Established in 2003 as “Projects Unit” and later metamorphosed into the “Directorate of Physical Planning and Development (DPP&D)” in 2006 and then later in 2012, following the white paper report of the Visitation Panel to The University, it was renamed “Directorate of Physical Development, Works and Services (DPDW&S).

The Directorate of Physical Development Works and Services DPDW&S is headed by Arc. Haruna Suleiman as Director.

Role of the Directorate of Physical Development, Works and Services
