    • When it comes to girls’ hostels at the University of Ibadan (UI), there are several options for two-person rooms, pricing, and amenities. Here’s a breakdown to help you:

      Hostels with Two-Person Rooms:

      1. Queen Elizabeth II Hall (QEII): This large undergraduate female hall offers shared two-person rooms and individual rooms. Pricing information isn’t readily available online, but you can contact the UI Lodgings Unit or student government for current rates. Cooking is not allowed in QEII or any other university hostels.

      2. Adetowun Ogunsheye Postgraduate Hall (AOPH): This newer postgraduate female hall provides self-contained two-person flats with a kitchenette. However, cooking is still not officially permitted, although some residents might use small appliances for basic food preparation. The cost for a two-person flat in AOPH is around N110,000 per semester.

      3. International Hostel Postgraduate Hall: This mixed-gender hall has one-person and two-person rooms, though availability for females in two-person rooms might be limited. Cooking is strictly not allowed. Room costs vary depending on type and duration (daily, weekly, monthly).

      Best and Most Comfortable Girls’ Hostel:

      Choosing the “best” hostel is subjective and depends on your priorities. Here are some options to consider based on different factors:

      Spaciousness and Modern Facilities:

      1. AOPH: Modern, self-contained flats with good furniture and study areas. Limited availability for undergraduates.

      2. New Postgraduate Halls: These include Alumni Postgraduate Hall and International Hostel Postgraduate Hall, offering modern amenities and shared facilities like laundry rooms and recreational areas. However, competition for spaces can be high.

      Social Atmosphere and Location:

      1. Queen Idia Hall: Large and vibrant community with access to various facilities and activities. Located near central campus.

      2. Alexander Brown Hall: Mixed-gender hall for clinical students, offering a unique social experience. Convenient for medical students.

      Overall Comfort and Security:

      1. AOPH: Quiet and secure environment with good living conditions, but located further from central campus.

      2. Queen Idia Hall: Secure and well-maintained, but can be noisy due to the large number of residents.

      Let me know if you have further questions.
