Welcome Message

You are warmly welcome to the website of the Faculty of Environmental Design, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Nigeria. The faculty is endowed to be the oldest amongst its pairs among the Nigerian Universities. It was part of the nucleus of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, when it was established in 1962. The two departments of Architecture and Fine Arts were established in 1952 and 1955 respectively, and existed as component parts of the defunct Nigerian College of Arts, Science and Technology, which later metamorphosed into the Ahmadu Bello University. Our pioneer status has aided us to be blessed with high calibre manpower – both in academic and administrative staff mix, as well as in lecture and research facilities.
