Best Hostel in UNN & UNEC Campus 2024

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.

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.

    • Joy,

      Exercise a little patience. There is no specific time frame for admission processing.

      The admission list will be out very soon on JAMB CAPS.

      Do you have any other question. I am here to assist you.

  1. Sir, I went to pay my school today and they said that the school fees for this session (2021/2022)have not been assigned, please advise Sir.

    • Ife,

      It is not advisable to buy bedspace. At times, it can result in one problem or the other.

      Meet with the hostel wardens to see if they can assist you with temporal hostel accommodation.

  2. Sir, I have paid my school and even have the Remitta payment receipt but the school portal says ‘No data found’ and the hostel portal says ‘no school fees have been paid’. Please advise. Thanks

  3. Hello Sir
    Good evening
    Please I tried logging into the hostel portal but it keeps saying I haven’t paid my fees for 2020/21 session. Please advise.
