UNN Hostel Portal: A Guide to Getting Hostel Accommodation

In recent times, there has been this unusual difficulty experienced by lions and lionesses in their quest to secure UNN hostel accommodation. In fact, it’s been so bad on UNN hostel portal that many people now believe that it is easier to gain admission in UNN than to get accommodation. Opinions vary though.

UNN Hostel Portal: A Guide to Getting Hostel Accommodation

1. You must appreciate the fact that the University has limited spaces for student accommodation.

2. These limited spaces are allocated on a first come, first serve basis. The UNN hostel allocation system is fully automated and can only be accessed from the UNN hostel application portal.

3. As you would expect of any sensible institution, the school gives high priority to First Year and Final year students during allocation.

4. First years get 40% of the total accommodation, final years 30% while others and special needs are get 30%. (If this doesn’t suit you, you have to deal with it)

5. If you are a Nursing Mother, you must apply for accommodation online and must notify the authorities early enough.

6. Note that all hostel accommodation invoices are valid for only three days after generation. (Any student who fails to pay online within the three day period will forfeit the allocation and fees paid).

7. All Reverend Sisters are to follow the authorized process for accommodation.

8. Physically challenged students are also expected to generate invoice online and proceed to make payments.

Conditions you Must Meet Before Applying for Accommodation on UNN Hostel Portal

At this point, I must remind you that UNN hostel accommodation is given only to those who apply early enough. But only students who have specifically met the following conditions will be qualified for accommodation on UNN hostel portal:

  • Paid all fees till date including acceptance fees. (See how to make UNN acceptance fee payment)
  • Registered all courses online till date.
  • Possess the University ID card or have been successfully captured.
  • Possess and use the University student email address.

You, therefore, need to know where you stand before carrying out your UNN hostel application.

UNN Hostel Rules and Regulations for Students

I’m adding this one here because I’m sure you need it. Many of you love freedom and you have craved for it till now. You see your admission into the tertiary institution as liberation from the ‘restrictions’ of your parents. So you are planning to fully exercise your liberty as an adult when you get to campus.

If you’ve got such mindset and plans, my dear UNN hostel accommodation is not recommended for you. The reason is because the school hostels are 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, bathing or pouring of water at undesignated places.
  • Defacing of Hostel walls by posting of bills, posters and any document.

You need to avoid all of the above.

Application for Temporary Application on UNN Hostel Portal

At the beginning of a new academic session, many ask if UNN can give them temporary accommodation. Some say even if it’s for 2 weeks or something like that.

This question comes mainly from freshers for obvious reasons. They are new in the campus and need a place to stay to process and pay their fees before they could be given their own bedspace.

Sadly, there is no room for temporary accommodation.

  1. Do they open the school fees Portal and hostel portal on the same day

    • Not necessarily.

      They may be opened the same day. But normally, the school fees portal would open before the hostel portal. This is because payment of school fees is a prerequisite to applying for hostel accommodation.
