Challenges while trying to get UNN Hostel Accommodation on UNN Portal


  • If you have tried and did not get accommodation, do not worry. School will open the portal again as most rooms are later discovered unoccupied.
  • For the first year students, I will advice that you apply for a hostel and get a good place before planning to get a lodge outside the school. The advantage of staying in hostel are just too numerous to contain in this article.
  • I also want to add that getting accommodation is usually competitive. It is usually on a first come first served basis. The faster you are to log in and apply, the higher the chances of getting a good hostel.
  • The Hostel portal usually crashes due to high traffic from students trying to get hostel accommodation. This is the truth, an I must say it. But that should not make you relax yet. The portal are usually very flexible at nights. Let me now give you an expo.
  • Try at midnight hours after you have tried in the day and it did not work.
  • Also, Make sure you use a good working PC when applying.
  • Make sure that the network you are using is good. If possible, use MTN or Airtel. If Glo network is faster in your area, then go for it.
  • If you select a room and while trying to generate an invoice, another person has already got it. Do not worry. try another room. But make sure that you get one. 🙂
  • For the females, accommodation is usually competitive. So pay your school fees in time to access the hostel portal for accommodation.
