A Complete Guide to Getting UNN Hostel Accommodation
In recent times, there has been this unusual difficulty experienced by lions and lionesses in their quest to secure school hostel accommodation. It’s so bad that it is now believed in some quarters that it is easier to gain admission in UNN than to get accommodation. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion though.
As is our custom, we want to arm you (whether you are a newly admitted student or returning student) with some very important information with regards to accommodation for this session so that things will work out easily for you with little or no hitches.
- You must appreciate the fact that the University has limited spaces for student accommodation.
- These limited spaces are allocated on a first come, first serve basis. The allocation process is fully automated and can only be accessed from the student portal.
- As expected of any sensible institution, the school gives high priority to First Year and Final year students during allocation.
- First years are allocated 40% of the total accommodation, final years 30% while others and special needs are allocated 30%. (If this doesn’t suit you, you have to deal with it)
- If you are a Nursing Mother, you must apply for accommodation online and must notify the authorities early enough.
- For those that love freedom, you need to know now that the school hostel accommodation is highly regulated. You can’t do or live the way you want to otherwise, find accommodation off campus! In fact, there are many things that are highly prohibited and some actions that can attract outright eviction from the hostel. Some of them include: Squatting of any kind, Late return to the hostel at night, Smoking, Drinking of Alcohol, Stealing, Fighting and quarreling, Use of hotplates, electric boiling ring, refrigerator, gas cooker and so on, Use of generator sets, Defecating and bathing at undesignated places, Pouring of water in undesignated places, Defacing of Hostel walls by posting of bills, posters and any document.
