Godfrey Okoye University Enugu Maintains 100% Boarding Policy
In a bid to uphold a conducive learning environment and ensure the moral training of students, Godfrey Okoye University Enugu strictly enforces a 100% boarding policy. The Deputy Vice Chancellor of the University, Sister Prof Marysylvìa Nwachukwu, clarified this stance during the annual Parents Forum held this year.
According to Sister Prof. Nwachukwu, exceptions to the boarding policy are only granted in rare and exceptional cases.

The primary objective of this policy, as explained by Sister Prof. Nwachukwu, is to minimize undesirable activities and foster a positive moral upbringing for the students.
During the Parents Forum, Sir Eusebius Offor, the Chairman of the forum, announced a significant contribution to the university. The forum pledged to donate a coaster bus to the school of nursing, further emphasizing their commitment to supporting various aspects of the institution. Additionally, Sir Eusebius Offor highlighted the forum’s previous contributions to the infrastructure development of the Godfrey Okoye University Teaching Hospital in Enugu.
Dr. Cindy Ezeugwu, the Vice Chairman of the forum, used the platform to encourage parents. She urged them to establish open and effective communication channels with their children, emphasizing the importance of avoiding comparisons between their children and others.
The Parents Forum serves as a vital avenue for collaboration between the university and parents, fostering a supportive community committed to the well-being and development of the students at Godfrey Okoye University.
