Every year, aspirants of different Tertiary institutions are faced with the challenge of choosing where to stay in school. As an undergraduate, it’s fair to say that off campus hostel is better than the school owned hostel. Below are some of the reasons why.

It’s glaring that you simply don’t have “Me-time” in the school hostel. You put.your pen on the bed, you meet it on the floor. Your belongings also goes missing from time to time. staying off campus affords you that privacy. Nobody disturbs you. If you like sleep Unclad on the bed.
The amount charges by schools is simply ridiculous. You pay tens of thousands of Naira to stay in a room with eight other guys. Off campus accommodation is relatively cheaper.
In a typical school hostel, you friends can’t visit you in your room. if i hear say bae visits you. In some schools e.g. unilorin, you might even be fined or get thrown out of the hostel.
