Moving on, we have the Queen Idia hall which is by default the best female hostel in the University. This hall has just 4 blocks and each block has its water tank as opposed to Queen’s hall. The porters are friendly and can even be seen joking with the residents.

3. Obafemi Awolowo hall

Then, the Obafemi Awolowo hall which is the largest female hall in the Sub-Saharan Africa. Apart from this, each block has about 6 floors and these floors do not have running water on them which leave its occupants to source for how to get water to their floor. Most Awoites have yam legs due to the fact that they have to climb stairs.
