Your Hostel At UI And What It Says About You

You might find it hard to believe this but whether you like it or not, the hall of residence you were allocated at the University of Ibadan somehow affects how people see you.

So today, we’ll be talking about how people view students from different halls of residence in the school.

1. Nnamdi Azikwe Hall

It’s no news that Zik hall is filled with bullies of different shapes and sizes. Not like I’m badmouthing them but it’s very obvious.

In the last SU week, they prepared a coffin on the day of their match against Kuti hall. Moreso, they’re popularly known for Aroism. Yet, I have a great fondness for Zik students. No be only for mouth, the Zikism spirit motivates them to do great things in football, politics, academics, and other aspects. You’d be surprised at how spiritual Zikites are.

Like Zik hall, Indy is full of students who value Aro more than their academics yet they have so much to offer in terms of party vibes. So far, the best gyration I’ve attended at the University of Ibadan was at the Independence. From the sound to the stage lighting and the master of ceremony, everything was top-notch. They also deserve accolades for their special beans recipe which can make hundreds of mouth water.

3. Kuti Hall

No Uite would be surprised that Kuti hall is that hall that both female students and male students from other halls do not have access to, unlike other male halls because of their strict rules. So, Kuti students are generally referred to as “Omo mummy”, “Omo butter” or “Kuti Ladies”. But as much as they appear innocent, they’re party rockers. If you’re the partying type, you can’t afford to miss any event at Kuti.

4. Mellanby Hall

It’s always fun to hang out with Mellanbites on a normal day but they’re not so great at offence. However, they’re good at playing volleyball and basket. Mellanbites don’t do Aro as much as other male hostels so they’re fun to be around.

5. Tedder Hall

We can all agree that their name sulks  What on earth is Tedderites? Sounds like Tedder rats to me. Nevertheless, Tedderites are the kings of debate. With my own eyes, I’ve seen how vibrant they are at explaining vital points of debate topics. 

6. Obafemi Awolowo Hall

The Obafemi Awolowo Hall is a hall that commands respect among other female halls in UI. Haters can keep referring to Awo girls as “Yam legs” but that doesn’t change the fact that they’re active in sports, debates, and academics. Awo is the home of intellectual women committed to making a useful impact in society.

7. Queen Idia Hall
