Management of information is a herculean task for most institutions. The advent of web portal technology proved promising as it provided ways to curb the difficulties in effectively managing data and information transfer within and outside the university community. This project was embarked upon to review the features of a university portal addressing the successes, flaws and challenges faced by the user group consisting of staff members, students and the general public when using the portal. Course registration and result computation modules are at the core of this design. It further introduces a new feature of integrating a lecture attendance monitoring system using a developed biometric (Fingerprint) module which has a real-time synchronization with the web portal. This project provides opportunities for the university community to upgrade the existing portal system through the adoption of this project and its rich features.
