The Poor State Of UNIABUJA Hostels – The poor, decrepit state of the hostels of the University of Abuja have recently been revealed in a new report.

The report, made by Abuja-based blog, showed the sorry state of toilets and bathrooms in the university’s male hostel.

A 400 Level student, who did not want his name disclosed said that it is better to defecate in the bushes than using the toilets in the hostel. According to him, the toilets are always messed up, with tissues and some other harder papers are sometimes discarded inside the toilets.

The source attributed the unhealthy environment to lack of adequate water needed to wash and flush the toilets.

However, most of the blame allegedly lies on the students, with many of them untrained in the proper use and maintenance of toilets.

One of the students who spoke with our reporter affirmed that most students do not maintain proper hygiene, saying they use the toilets without bothering to flush. Others who refused to mention their names said when the condition of the toilets deteriorate they result to other means. All efforts to speak with the head of students affairs proved abortive.

A lecturer who spoke on condition of anonymity attributed the ugly conditions of the toilet facilities in universities of Abuja to improper usage by the students, adding that most of the students defecate like uncivilized people.

Whatever the cause may be, the situation of the hostels need to be improved. See photos below, courtesy

  1. A lot has been said about the issues average Nigerian undergraduates have in getting decent accommodation in or around the campus.
    I and friend thought about it, and came up with a way we believe that helps manage the situation.

    Since most real estate investors are wary of investing in building new and affordable hostels around Nigerian campus, mainly because most are not disposed to the trouble that goes with collecting rent from students, we then went around it, to create a platform that helps students manage more effectively the hostels available. It does two things mainly,

    1: A student can get to share his/room on a short or long term with other students both old and new.
    2: They can make small money from rent these users may pay him/her.

    E.G. A jambite living in Lagos may have applied to study in UNN. He/She knows nobody there or may even have uncles and aunts that live far off the campus. During his POST UME exam, such a student can conveniently come to the platform and search for students willing to share their room on a short let. He/She can just call, after viewing the room.
    The same goes for students looking for room mate.

    For the students who owns the room, they can use these easy steps to upload their rooms on the platform
    Designed with basic concept but with full functionality

    Just follow these 5 easy steps.
    1: Log on to and register. (takes approximately 20 seconds)
    2: Login to the platform and go to your profile by clicking on your name
    3: Go to the submit hostel section, take pictures of your room (Focus on the selling point)
    4: Name your price and upload.
    5: Wait for calls.

    Isn’t that cool?


    So the next time your on on holiday, IT break or just broke and needs little cash, Log on to and make some money.

    We strongly believe these will help build a better community of students and help save the parents some money and peace of mind.
