The Authorities and Management of Lagos State University (LASU) News Updates hereby inform Staff, Students and the General Public that the recess declared on March 23, 2015 is still very much in force.
That is to say that the school is still on break as against the information being circulated in some quarters that the University would re-open for both academic and administrative activities on Monday, April 27, 2015.
However, the continued closure will not in any way affect the activities of ensuring that all graduates of the University, who have been mobilized for NYSC Batch “A”, scheduled to commence on May 5, 2015 are duly attended to by the relevant Service Areas in the University.
Consequently, staff and students who do not fall into the category enunciated above, should kindly stay away from the University, pending its re-opening.
Management is therefore using this medium to express it’s appreciation to all, as it hopes to re-open the institution as soon as possible.
