The 40th Matriculation Ceremony of the University of Nigeria will hold on Saturday, March 08, 2014 to admit freshmen formally to full membership of the University. All freshmen are expected to solemnly and publicly make a declaration of loyalty to the University of Nigeria on that day.
The ceremony will take place in the various faculties at both the Nsukka and Enugu campuses of the University at 10.00a.m.
Full participation in the ceremony is mandatory for all freshmen. It is also mandatory that every matriculated student who is fully cleared will sign the Matriculation Register. Any freshman who fails to participate in the ceremony loses the chance of being formally admitted into the University community. Consequently, he or she will be regarded as not having fulfilled the requirements for full studentship in the University.

4. Academic Regalia Matriculating students should appear in the University’s academic regalia to be collected from their Faculties as may be arranged. Matriculating postgraduate students and members of staff taking part in the ceremony may wear the regalia of their respective universities. No hoods are required.
5. Conduct at the Matriculation Venues The Matriculation Ceremony is expected to be of relatively short duration. Matriculating students are therefore, expected to remain in their places all through the ceremony. They are also advised not to bring any cameras, as taking photographs in the course of proceedings will disrupt the ceremony. Accredited photographers will be in service at various faculty venues.
Matriculating students are strongly advised to report early to the various venues so as to ensure their full participation in the ceremony. Those who report late will be excluded from the ceremony.
6. Happy Matriculation On behalf of the entire University community, we once again, congratulate all matriculating students on their admission into their dream University. We wish them all happy Matriculation and a rewarding studentship.
