UNILORIN Dress Code: Acceptable & Unacceptable Dressing

University of Ilorin, UNILORIN dress code for students of the institution.

UNILORIN dress code

All students are hereby reminded that there is a DRESS CODE put in place by the University which must be observed at all times.

The University is determined to continue to impact positively on its students not only intellectually but also morally in pursuit of its avowed commitment to the development of TOTAL MAN. To this end, it will award its degrees to only deserving students who have been found worthy not only in learning but also in character. Students are therefore strongly advised to exhibit good behaviour and dress decently at all times.

Male Students Should Note that.

  1. The hair should be neat and well combed at all time.
  2. The hair should not be coloured (except it is natural colour).
  3. Curled hair is not acceptable.
  4. The hair should be well kept and groomed always.
  5. The haircuts should not carry inscriptions.
  6. Artificial dread locks, plaiting, weaving or braiding of hair are not acceptable.
  7. Beards must be well kept.

Female Students Should Note that.

  1. Weaving, plaiting, braiding, fixing and wigs are acceptable.
  2. Hair extensions with colours such as; Blue, Green, White, Yellow, Red, Pink, and Purple or a combination of any of these colours are not acceptable.
  3. Hair must be neatly packed and weaved.
  4. The hairstyle should not carry inscriptions.
  5. All wears must be below the knee level.
  6. Pencil trousers are allowed but must be complemented with tops that cover the butt line.
  7. All traditional and corporate wears that do not reveal sensitive parts of the body are acceptable.

The mode of dressing of a student speaks volumes about him or her. In other words, one’s appearance influences people’s perception of one’s person. Students should, therefore, always dress responsibly to command respect. All students must refrain from wearing INDECENT CLOTHINGS if they must be accorded respect and protect their dignity.
