In addition the college has ten networked computer laboratories of which the Departments of Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, and Statistics each have one, while the Department of Information Science has three computer Laboratories of its own. Moreover, the college has one networked computer laboratory dedicated to the graduate program and one multipurpose networked computer laboratory for undergraduate students. The remaining one is reserved for the African Virtual University (AVU) e-learning program. The college also hosts 16 fully functional science laboratories in the departments of Biology, Chemistry and Physics including one geometry laboratory in the department of mathematics. Two of the laboratories are dedicated for postgraduate and staff research activities. The details of the facilities within the laboratories could be accessed from the university’s web page with reference to the college’s departments. Among the science laboratory facilities available in the Department of Chemistry are Polarimeter, UV-Vis spectrometer, Electrochemical analyzers, Spectrofluorometer, GC, GC-MS, Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer, Thermogravimeric analyzer, Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer, etc. All classrooms are “smart”. Revenue generating, multipurpose hall with video conferencing facility is also one of the most important resources in the college supporting learning and teaching activities. A branch library known by the name, ‘Education Library’, renders 24 hours services for the college academic community with its learning and teaching references books and e-resources.
