Khalifa Isyaku Rabiu University

About khairun

University Overview

In the year 2022, the National Universities Commission (NUC) announced an addition of a new private university in Kano State. That was the proclamation of the Khalifa Isyaku Rabiu University, Kano. The University’s acronym is KHAIRUN. The Founder of the University, was Khalifa Isyaku Rabi’u (Khadimul Qur’an), rahimahulLah. Until his wafat he demonstrated keen interest and desire to witness the completion of his long standing ambition of building an educational empire, from Kindergarten to the University level. Allah (SWT) in His infinite mercies did not plan for that. In His divine wisdom, Allah SWT has however, blessed the worthwhile ambition of this gentleman – today, KHAIRUN is a reality. It is an addition to the various schools he has established from the scratch. May Allah SWT continue to rest his gentle soul in Jannat el-Firdaus.  

Presently, KHAIRUN has three Faculties, ten Departments and sixteen academic programmes, namely: Allied Medical Sciences with three Departments and three programmes; Science and Computing with five Departments and ten programmes; and Engineering with two Departments and three programmes. Each of these programmes has been equipped with state of the art equipment in classes and in the laboratories. In addition to all these there are smart classrooms for easy tutelage, strong internet access, and a vibrant website. The University Library is well equipped with current holdings and e-resources. There is also a well-equipped hostel facility for both male and female, and for international students. All these are provided for students in order to ease academic pursuit.

While we remain prayerful for Allah’s protection, the University has provided adequate security measures to protect lives and properties, and against any incursion by insurgent elements. To crown all these, the University has a well-planned arrangements on ground to ensure strict compliance to all University regulations, social norms and values, and for the observance and enforcement of our highly cherished Islamic traditions. Staff and students are therefore encouraged to be wary of, to support and be ready to imbibe the peculiarities of KHAIRUN environment.

I want to, on behalf of Proprietors, Board of Trustees, Governing Council and Management of KHAIRUN, welcome all the newly admitted students to this promising citadel of learning. I also wish to congratulate you for the single advantage and rare privilege of being pioneer students.
