The choice of a university depends on many factors which may vary with individuals. Few of many reasons people give why they choose UNIUYO are as follows:
- UNIUYO is situated in an easy accessible area from all different locations.
- UNIUYO is a federal University; the fees are affordable, unlike the state owned universities where they pay exorbitant fees.
- UNIUYO is the only university in the south-east where Electronics and Computer Engineering has been accredited by the National Universities Commission and COREN.
- In UNIUYO, admission is strictly by merit.
- The environment is intimidation and harassment-free, giving no room for cult activities. One can walk around freely at anytime of the day without fear of molestation, and this goes a long way to suggest that the security network is very active.
- Finally, it is the wish of every student to graduate as and when due with good grades; UNIUYO is known to support this, as it runs an uninterrupted academic calendar year in year out.
- The transportation system in UNIUYO can only be described as effective and efficient.
