    Good evening,please, I'm in serious need of a bed space in any hostel.I need information on when next the hostel portal will open.
    Need urgent reply to my request,please.
    Thank you.

    1. Rita, there are many female students in your shoes as we speak. UNN has a somewhat limited number of hostels compared to the number of students actually in need of where to stay within the school. The school will release an update if they plan to open the portal again and it will be posted here. However, you should know that whenever the portal opens again, the number of rooms that will be available will most likely be few and the demand is still high, which means that many people will still be overloading the portal trying to apply for bed space. If you have a friend or relative staying off campus, you might need to start considering merging with the person for security and quick accommodation. Either way, the decision is yours. All the best!
