I get many questions from newly admitted students on the best hostel in the University of Nigeria.
Well, in this post, I will quickly take you through the best girls and male hostels in UNN and UNEC Campus.
Read UNN Off-Campus Accommodation to get more details about Hostel and Lodges in UNN.
You need to know that UNN hostels have been standing way back in the 1960s.
Thus, you should not expect five-star accommodation. There is a reason why UNN is the Lion Den.
After all, old UNN students are living in the hostel. They are doing fine.
Trust me; you will be okay with whatever hostel that you get.
Let me know in the comment section if you have any questions about UNN hostels.

Best Hostel in UNN
There are two male hostels in UNN;
- Alvan Ikoku Hostel
- Eni Njoku
There is no comparison between the male hostels at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka.
The living and sanitary conditions in both hostels are pretty the same.
But the difference is that Alvan Ikoku has iron doors and a football pitch.
Every other thing in both hostels is the same. You will survive like a Lion in whichever hostel that you get.
First-year students in the College of Medicine get Alvan Ikoku Hostel.
