The University of Ilorin, one of the top and most sought Institutions in the, has thousands of students applying to the institution every academic year from every zone of the country.
However, all these students, especially non-indigenes would need a place to stay or go back to after the whole stressful day in school. And especially if you don’t want to get into the hassle of fighting for transport, to and fro school. If you don’t want to worry about missing lectures too, then staying on campus is the right choice for you.
There are choices, as some would look out for bed spaces outside the campus, and some would choose to stay inside the campus.
And inside the campus, you’d have two more options. You can either opt out of the school hostels run and managed by the institution or the private hostels owned by individuals.
Well then, if you are a returning student wanting to change your hostel or you are starting to consider living on campus for lenient accessibility or as a freshman.
While some might not want to stay in the school hostels because of limited bed space or privacy notwithstanding the cheap price tags, many would prefer to go for the private hostels, not for the cost but the cool amenities available for occupants of the individual hostels.
Ladies and gents, here are top-ranked private hostels for thorough navigation:
