Fountain University, Osogbo was granted an operational license as a Private University on May 2007 by the Federal Government on the recommendation of the National Universities Commission. The desire of the Nasrul-Lahi-Il-Fatih Society of Nigeria (NASFAT) to establish a University was borne out of its educational policy and plan. Fountain University commenced its academic activities on the 12th March, 2008; the University presently occupied the former Muslim Grammar School, Oke-Osun, Osogbo.
Presently, Fountain University Library, Osogbo operates at its temporary location within the University premises. The University has two Colleges namely: College of Natural and Applied Sciences (CONAS) and College of Management and Social Sciences (COMAS). The University has a Central Library that services all the programmes in the departments. We have strong book and journal collections in the central library that support the programmes in the two colleges. An upcoming institution, Fountain University has completed arrangement to start its postgraduate school and the Library is prepared to update its collections to meet this new higher level.
