University of Nigeria Portal – Features and How to Use it

University of Nigeria Portal – Features and How to Use it

You are welcome to today’s tutorial. On this guide, I will be highlighting the different features of University of Nigeria’s web portal popularly known as UNN portal. I find it needful to teach you how to navigate through this portal because if you master it, it will save you a lot of stress and you would enjoy a level of independence both as a prospective student and returning student. 

Because many do not know how to use the unnportal, they have never logged into their profiles themselves talk more of updating their accounts or doing any form of semester course registration. Such people depend on business centres and cyber cafe attendants to do every single thing on the portal. Such should not be your experience, at least, not after religiously going through this tutorials.

Features of UNN Portal

  • Note that it is now very easy for every student of UNN (both the newly admitted and older students) to have personal account with the school via the portal.
  • You will need a device with internet access (data) to access unnportal.

The very first step is to access the unnportal through this link:

On the home page that loads, you will see the following bold tabs:

  • Bursary Collections 
  • Prospective Students 
  • Undergraduate Students 
  • Postgraduate Students 
  • Affiliate Universities 
  • Account 
  • Back Home

I will take a little time to discuss the features of these tabs and what they are used for.

  1. student related payment
  2. staff related payment
  3. UNN Ventures payment
  4. Stakeholders payment
  5. Other payments

Under each of the categories outlined above, you have other sub categories, some of which are: examination fee, attestation fee, Certificate collection, NYSC exemption fee, House Rent from UNN Quaters, Staff Housing Loan, etc 

So you are required to select the one that suits your category and the payments you want to make whether you are a student, staff or stakeholder.
