Godfrey Okoye University (GO University) was founded in 2009 by the Very Reverend Father Professor Dr. Christian Anieke for the Catholic Diocese of Enugu.[1] The university, which got its operational licence on 3 November 2009 from the National Universities Commission (NUC), belongs to the Catholic Diocese of Enugu in Nigeria. It is the first university owned by a Catholic Diocese in Africa.

In 2009 the university started with 215 students[2] and admitted 1,200 students by the end of 2012.[3]

On 1 December 2013, GOU commenced a week-long programme of activities to celebrate its maiden convocation. 100 students were awarded bachelor's degrees during the final ceremony on 7 December 2013.[4]

GOU is a member of the Committee of Vice-Chancellors of Nigerian Universities (CVC).[5]
