University of Ilorin, UNILORIN dress code for male and female students of the institution. See the acceptable modes of dressing in the university.

UNILORIN dress code

This is to remind all students of UNILORIN that there is a DRESS CODE put in place by the University. And the university expects all students to strictly observe this dress code at all times.

The University is determined to continue to impact positively on its students not only intellectually but also morally. This is in pursuit of its 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.

UNILORIN Dress Code for Male Students

Male students of UNILORIN should note the following.

  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.

UNILORIN Dress Code for Female Students

Female students of UNILORIN should note the following.

  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.

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.
