Unilag Hostels: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Hello everyone! Few days ago, I announced that balloting for bedspace would soon commence and encouraged everyone to register for my balloting service as soon as possible.

A large percentage of those who sent mails have been replied and the others would soon be replied.
However, for the purpose of proper documentation, we have not yet opened the portal for people to make payments yet. It would be opened soon.


As we know, my hostel balloting service is one of the cheapest and most reliable around and to save yourself the stress and frustration, book my service.
That's by the way. I intend giving you little descriptions of the available hostels so you can understand and know what to expect. Freshers would find this article priceless!
Some students prefer to live on campus where accommodation is cheaper, even though relatively difficult to acquire. There are various hostels on campus. But the advantages and disadvantages are what determine the decisions undergraduates make in the end.

UNILAG HOSTEL TIPS

1. The accommodation exercise is strictly an online distribution and allocation of bed spaces.
2. Students should note that there are limited bed spaces due to an increase in the number of students.
3. Allocation of bed spaces will be on the basis of first come, first serve.
4. All freshers shall be distributed into permanent Halls of Residence (HoR). Thereafter they will ballot for bed spaces on the basis of their
assigned HoR.
5. The students with medical challenges (physically challenged inclusive) should register at the Medical Centre; otherwise, their cases will not
be treated by the Students Affairs Division.
6. No sales of scratch cards for accommodation.
7. Students are advised to log on directly to the allocation portal for allocation of bed spaces using matriculation number or jamb registration
number as the case may be.
8. Every student should strictly abide by the timetable for allocation of bed spaces for each category.
9. Students must pay their accommodation fee within 3-working days after allocation of bed space, else the bed space stands forfeited
10. Deriving from nine (9) above, another round of balloting will be carried out to give the opportunity to students who did not succeed in the
earlier ballot.
11. Complaints should be channelled through the online helpdesk for accommodation. All complaints shall be attended to promptly. No students
and staff are allowed to gather in or outside the Students Affairs Office.
 12. Re-assignment of HoR based on choice will not be entertained; students with such request shall forfeit his/her allocation.
 13. Under no circumstances should any bed space/room not officially assigned to be occupied by any student.
 14. Students penalised for any form of social and academic misconduct are not eligible for accommodation.
 15. Biological form for staff-child(ren) has been uploaded online, members of staff are expected to fill, print, sign and submit at the Student
Affairs Division (attach a copy of birth certificate and last course registration form of the session). Other necessary information will be
posted on the University Website and in the Information Flash.
 16. All students resident in the HoR shall be issued identification pass/cards, which must be produced on demand at any point in time.
 17. All students are requested to avail themselves of information on accommodation through the Unilag Website, Lagmobile and the
Information Flash.

Why Balloting Isn't So Easy

University of Lagos (UNILAG) is regarded as the first choice of many Nigerian young people seeking admission into tertiary institutions. The reason is not far-fetched. Founded in 1962, the school provides a conducive environment for teaching and learning. 

It is also a place where students of all tribes, races, ethnics, culture and subculture can interact. UNILAG, a Federal institution has its main campus in Yaba, somewhere at the heart of the state.
University of Lagos has twelve faculties which are Faculty of Arts, Basic Medical Science, Clinical Science, and Dental science, Education, Engineering, Environmental Science, Pharmacy, Law, Sciences, Social Science and Management Science.
Every year thousands of aspiring undergraduates apply to the university because of its elevated social life and the rich cosmopolitan experience. Unfortunately, only few are chosen.
I'd advise that if you are very sensitive or you are rather very tush, buy a private hostel. Guess what? We handle it too at Unilag Updates. Just send me a mail with subject 'I need a Private Hostel' and I would give you the steps to take and if possible, get one for you within few working days at affordable amounts!

  2. Based on number 15, does that mean that staff children don't need to ballot?
