UNILAG slashes school fees after NANs meeting




The University of Lagos (UNILAG) has backtracked on its school fees increment.

This was confirmed in a statement on Thursday night after a meeting with the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS).

UNILAG has now granted micro fee cuts to the students who have been demanding a reversal of the hike.

In July, the institution announced an upward review in its fees meant to take effect from September 1.

But the school has now reduced the fees.

Obligatory fees

Utility charges for all students were reduced to ₦15,000 from ₦20,000.
The obligatory fees for new undergraduate students were reviewed from ₦126,325 to ₦116,325 for courses without Lab/Studio and ₦176,325 to ₦166,325:00 for Courses with Lab/Studio.
The obligatory fees for returning undergraduate students were reviewed from ₦100,750 to ₦80,750 for courses without Lab/Studio; ₦140,250 to ₦120,250 for courses with Lab/Studio; and from ₦190,250 to ₦170,250 for medical/pharmacy students and students in health professions.
The convocation fee to be paid by all final-year students was reduced to ₦27,000 from ₦30,000.
Hostel fees

For undergraduate hostels in Akoka and Yaba campuses, the fees were reduced to ₦43, 000 from ₦90,000.
For hostels in the Idi-Araba campus, the fees were reduced to N65,000 from ₦120,000.
The fees for Sodeinde Hall were reduced to N135,000 from ₦250,000.
Among the resolutions that the meeting with the university management birthed is the decision to commence the reinstatement of UNILAG’s student union government, which was dissolved in 2016.
