A school hostel is simply an accommodation the school provides, usually a tertiary institution for its students.
Universities hostels are within the premises and are always available at a subsidized rate compared to normal accommodation outside the school.
Some years ago, I was admitted to the Federal University Of Abeokuta (FUNAAB) with the confusion about living in the hostel or off campus.
A sister connected me to a trusted Agent, and I stayed at FUNAAB ZOO, which is not far from school because the transport fare in Abeokuta is expensive.
Campus life is all about experiences you interact with other students, the teaching method, meet intelligent kind of personalities.
It would help if you got a hostel near the school area because of the financial aspect, and all other things.
Make sure you study hard, focus, and choose a like-minded friend.
Staying in the school hostel or off campus is not a gateway to failing your exams.
To succeed in the University depends on your hard work, source of motivation to study, disciplined, the kind of friends you mingle with, be prayerful, not emulate bad friends and Staying in a well secured with basic needs such as light, water, security, quiet hostel.
I hope this article will help you in your academic pursuit in securing a good ACCOMMODATION and many more.
