Ahmadu Bello University Zaria hostel accommodation fee 2024/2025

Hostel accommodation is very competitive. The bed space is relatively small compared to the number of students in the school. So, it is like survival of the fittest. ABU Hostel accommodation fee is a sum of seven thousand five hundred nairas (#7500).

The ABU hostel accommodation price is not like school fees, which differ depending on faculty/courses or indigenization; instead, it is a set charge for a specific group of students.

The Ahmadu Bello University hostel cost is currently N7,500. The fee may change over time, but rest assured that we will keep you informed if it does.

Note: Always keep all your receipts (school fees, hostel fee, acceptance fee receipt, etc) intact up till your final year because Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria will require this receipt before you graduate from the school. It is very important if you don’t want unnecessary payment.

ABU Zaria Postgraduate School Fees 2024/2025

This is to inform the public that the management at Ahmadu Bello University ABU Zaria has released the school fees for the postgraduate Students for the 2024/2025 Academic Session.

The School of Postgraduate Studies at Ahmadu Bello University accommodates the PGD, Master’, Doctoral, and even Post-Doctoral programmes. Understandably, the fees are far more expensive than those of undergraduate courses. Note that to apply for any of these programmes, you have to purchase the application form which costs N10,500. 

  • Acceptance Fees: ABU requested a sum of N50,000 for both Sciences and School of Management Sciences. This is the same amount paid by Post-Graduate Diploma Students.
  • Registration Fee: N25,000 for PGD and Masters, both Sciences and Management Sciences.

One thing I must emphasize is that this piece only considers the fees in effect at the time of writing. Please try to understand if there have already been changes before you see this post. These fees may change at any time. It is crucial to remember that acceptance fees, as well as other miscellaneous charges, are already included in the tuition rates for new students. These so-called freshmen will begin to pay the cost for returning students once they reach the 200 level (UTME Candidates) and 300 level (Direct Entry Candidates).
