UNILAG Cuts Fees after meeting with students association


The University of Lagos (UNILAG) has responded to student demands by reducing fees and addressing key concerns. After a meeting with representatives from the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), UNILAG authorities led by Vice-Chancellor Prof. Folasade Ogunsola announced significant fee reductions.

During the meeting, NANS President Comrade Usman Umar Barambu presented students' demands, including the reversal of obligatory fees, hostel fee reductions, and the reinstatement of the Students' Union Government.

Vice-Chancellor Ogunsola emphasized the university's commitment to providing quality education to all students, regardless of their background.

The consensus reached during the meeting includes:

1. Utility Charges for all students reduced to N15,000 from N20,000.

2. Obligatory fees for new undergraduate students reviewed to N116,325 for Courses without Lab/Studio and N166,325 for Courses with Lab/Studio.

3. Obligatory fees for returning undergraduate students adjusted to N80,750 for Courses without Lab/Studio, N120,250 for Courses with Lab/Studio, and N170,250 for Medical/Pharmacy and Health Professions students.

4. Convocation Fee for final year students reduced to N27,000 from N30,000.

5. Hostel fees lowered significantly: N43,000 for undergraduate hostels in Akoka and Yaba campuses, N65,000 for hostels in Idi-Araba campus, and N135,000 for Sodeinde Hall.

This decision follows student protests against the initial fee hikes announced by the university earlier this year.

UNILAG's move to reduce fees demonstrates its commitment to accessible and quality higher education for all students.
