List Of School Hostels In Unilorin

The University of Ilorin provided hostels for its students, aside from the private individuals that independently own theirs. The school hostess is run and managed by the school management, set the rules, and payment methods.

Balloting for bed spaces in the school is not new, it’s a process whereby new and returning students are required to go to the school portal and make reservations Online.

It is allocated according to the bed space available for each department, therefore a limited offer.

The process is usually timed, so the majority of students stay glued to their portals to get a bed space within a short time range. After which the payment must be made within 72hrs for the effective preservation of the bed space, the price for these hostels ranges from 28k-30k.

Unlike the private-owned hostels, the hostel bed space for each student is reserved for only an academic year. In other words, there’s no retaining of previous rooms as only freshers are given more privilege to book bed spaces each academic session. Returning students have lesser opportunities. 

The hostels use a village system and have rooms of 2,4,6 and 8. There is only one male hostel in all of the villages while the rest are for the females. 

The rooms in the hostel are tiled with bookshelves and wardrobes, mattresses, and pillows. Bathroom and toilet and kitchenettes.
