Enugu is the capital of Enugu State, southeastern Nigeria. The name Enugu is derived from two Igbo words, “Énú Ụ́gwụ́” that means “top of the hill or mountain”. Enugu was founded in 1909 by Mr Kikson; a British Mining Engineer, who stumbled on vast coal reserves in the area. Lord Lugard, the then colonial governor, took a keen interest in this discovery and, in 1917, he gave the village township status.
In 1939, Enugu became the capital of the Eastern Provinces of Nigeria, and in 1967, it briefly served as the provisional capital of the secessionist Republic of Biafra. Following the split of the old Anambra State in 1991, into Enugu and Anambra State; Enugu was chosen and hitherto serves as the capital of the new Enugu State. Enugu has a tropical savanna climate. This climate is humid, characterised by high humidity between March and November. However, its average temperature is typically 26.7o C. The city’s economy depends mainly on its natural resources such as coal, Iron ore, mine, limestone and its cash crops.

The primary forms of transportation in the city are buses and taxi cabs.  Motorcycles once served as a means of public transport in the city until the state government banned them from this use in April 2009. The city also has an international airport called the Akanu Ibiam International Airport that services flight within and out of the city. The city hosts both inhabitants and visitors in its affordable hotels and hostels. Enugu also possesses several restaurants, malls and markets that are open to serve the needs of the city’s inhabitants. The Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium that is geared towards filling the sports need of the population.
The city encourages relaxation and refreshment through the UZ Joint Relaxation Centre, the Erico Relaxation Centre and the Enugu State gulf club. The population is kept informed through the numerous newspaper (the Daily Star, the Evening Star, the Renaissance and the New Renaissance), the Enugu State Broadcasting Service Television and the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria. Finally, the city possesses several hospitals, a teaching hospital and numerous clinic that cater to the needs of the ill population. All these facilities are geared towards providing a conducive environment for those wishing to study in ESUT.
