About Us

The Directorate of Works and Municipal Services is responsible for providing and maintaining physical infrastructure, including buildings, plant, machinery, utilities, roads, byways, grounds and gardens of the University, whether owned, leased or otherwise controlled or possessed by the University, wherever situated.

As a Directorate in the University, there is the need for a work structure (organogram) that will coordinate the activities and also allow workflow of the Directorate and define assigned roles, responsibilities, reporting, and communication lines to help the Directorate work effectively and efficiently to respond to its mandate.

The new work structure proposes a three-tier management system-Departments, Sections and Units.

The Directorate operates with four departments and two supporting departments (administrative and accounts) to harness both human and material resources effectively to meet the demands of stakeholders.
