How much is the UNILAG hostel fee?
Considering the accommodation cost in Lagos, I would say the hostel fee is very cheap.
UNILAG hostel fee is 25,500 naira per academic session.
However, it doesn’t come easy. You need to apply for rooms. If you get lucky enough, you might get one.
Living in the school hostel might be considered a good decision, but it has some disadvantages.
As you applied for the hostel room in your 100 Level, you will do the same every other session. You might not get your former room.
Each room is overpopulated, and you won’t have any privacy. You are susceptible to any disease your roommates may be carrying.
The hostel toilets and environment is nothing to write home about. Be careful not to contact any disease.
Accommodation off campus is costly. If you are not financially capable, apply for the school hostel.
