UNN Hostel Accommodation for Post UTME Candidates 2024

The University of Nigeria provides hostel accommodation for Post UTME students.

It is to ensure that students coming from afar do not get stranded when they arrive at Nsukka.

Usually, Post UTME students have the option to stay at the school hostel during their exams. 

But, the challenge is that few students can afford to lodge at hotels in Nsukka. Also, most of the hostels get booked during this period.

Another option is to live with a relative staying off-campus or at St Peter’s Chaplaincy during the period of your exams.

Other Christian Fellowships in UNN Campus provide free accommodation for students.

But what happens if you cannot afford a hotel or do not know anybody in Nsukka?

The UNN has made it possible for Post UTME candidates to apply for hostel accommodation. 

In this post, I will show you how Post UTME students can apply for UNN hostel accommodation.

Do let me know in the comment box below if you have any questions or need further clarifications.

  1. Good afternoon Blessing
    I’m coming from Lagos, how do I locate the St Peter’s Chaplaincy and how do I go about securing a space.

    • When you enter the UNN shuttle at Ogige Market.

      Tell the driver that you want to stop at St. Peter’s.

      Remind the driver when the bus enters the campus.

      Inside the St. Peter’s premise.

      Ask for direction for the NFCS Secretariat. They will assist you with where to stay for the Post UTME.

      I wish you a safe trip to Nsukka.

    • There is no information for now concerning the booking of a hostel for Post UTME students.

      You can always stay at St. Peter’s Chaplaincy free of charge.

    • Application for Post UTME Hostel accommodation is not yet available.

      You’d need to follow instructions as they are made available.

  2. Hello sir.
