This present study includes the use of MATLAB R2012b software for the design and analysis of waste stabilization pond for the university of Ilorin. Kwara State. Contamination and pollution resulting from unlawful and increasing wastewater discharge expose the environment to degradation and the populace to health risks. The forecasted population in 25years time was found to be 93606 people. The total volume of wastewater that will be generated in 2042 was found to be 9372.6m3/day and the maturation pond had the largest area (43738.80m2) with its dimension being 296m by 148m by 1.5m while the facultative pond had the least area (11715.75m2) with dimensions 501m by 167m by 1.5m.
