Important Information About Unilag Hostel 2022

  • The registration is done online via UNILAG online portal
  • The spaces in each room are labeled A, B, C, D, E, F and so on, depending on the capacity of the room. This number is given to you when you secure a space on UNILAG online portal. Unlike other universities where top bunks are for 100 level and 200 level students, hostel spaces in UNILAG are not given based on the level. In other words, a final year student can get the top bunk space and a fresher can get the bottom bunk space.
  • All hostel balloting is on a first come first serve basis and is done online. Freshers and final year students are usually given preference during the balloting for hostels.
  • Hostels usually face the problems of pests and bed bugs so ensure you have yourself prepared for everything.
  • All hostels (male and female) have a good power supply except in rare situations where there is a general power failure. These situations are managed speedily on campus anyway.
  • All hostels cost N25,000 except Sodeinde Hall that costs from N65,000 to N85,000. This accommodation fee is paid per session.

How to secure hostel space in UNILAG for the 2020/2021 session

  • Pay your school fees and register your courses online on UNILAG portal. Only those that have paid their school fees for that session are eligible to apply for hostel and participate in balloting.
  • On the day of balloting, there is usually a lot of traffic so students are advised to use more than one device to ballot for hostel spaces, to ensure they can secure one. Balloting last for about 3 to 4 days. This session’s (2019/2020) balloting will begin on the 6th of January, 2020.
  • If you could secure a space, you will have to pay in the bank through Remita within 3 days after you get the space or you would forfeit it.
