The Catholic University College of Ghana (CUCG) is a private Christian institution located in Sunyani, Ghana. Its establishment came as an idea of the Ghana Catholic Bishops in 1997.

Sunyani is the capital town of the Bono region and the Sunyani Municipal of Ghana. The city has a total population of 70,299 inhabitants. The word ‘Sunyani’ was derived from the Akan word ‘Osono’ that stands for elephant.

The city was discovered in the 19th century and used as a camp by elephant hunters. Some years later, the colonial government earmarked Sunyani as a district headquarters.

Sunyani city is in constant growth with a thriving economy. Sunyani features a tropical climate, characterised by a range of high and low temperatures during the year; 25°C to 32°C.

The predominant ethnic group in the region is Akan, characterised by their distinct dialect, festivals and customs. Sunyani’s economy is predominantly agrarian, with approximately 48% of the population engaged in agriculture production.

Sunyani’s conduciveness is heavily reinforced by its high-quality water supply and regular electricity, supplied by the Volta River Authority (VRA).

It is regularly flooded by several inhabitants with administrative and financial goals, mainly because the city houses numerous public offices, companies and financial institutions, such as the Zenith Bank, Agricultural Development Bank of Ghana, Stanbic Bank, Bank of Ghana, etc.

Sunyani follows a triennial road and rail construction & rehabilitation strategy, which suggest that the coming years may be bright for the city’s roadway. This city also encourages movements by servicing flights within and out of its location through the Sunyani Airport.

It boasts of several touristic attractions that embrace visitors and local inhabitants such as the Jubilee Park, the Kintampo falls and the Lake Volta. Sunyani established an effective city communication system, by opening over 6,800 direct telephone lines, linked to most district capitals.

The city boasts of several Star-rated hotels, luxury guesthouses and hostels, of affordable prices.

Moreover, in Sunyani is found another top university named the Catholic University College of Ghana. Finally, the city ensures a healthy life for its inhabitants through the numerous hospitals, clinics and medical centres that are present and open to the public.  These facilities are vital points to look into when considering UENR for tertiary education.
