Now we will be looking at each of the advantage in details

Advantage of staying in the school hostel in year one

1.The school hostel is secure: When it come to security, the school hostel is better off compared to off campus. This is because the school hostels have dedicated people(portals) whose aim is to ensure the safety of lives and properties in the hostels.

On the other hand, staying off campus is another story entirely. Social vices like robbery,cultism,harassment, rape, assasination are very common off-campus.

2.It is relatively cheaper: The school hostel is cheap when compared with hostels off campus. In the university of Benin, you will spend a total of #17,000-#18,000 to get a space in the school hostel. 

On the other hand, to get a good hostel off campus you will need about #50,000 upward.

Therefore, staying in the school hostel saves your parent or guardian a lot of money. Such money can be used to get you more food stuffs or textbooks.

3.Proximity to classses: This is another great advantage of staying in the school hostel. You can easily rush to your class in the case of emergency test or attendance.

Also, you can rush back to your hostel in case you forgot anything like your class notes, textbooks or any other important stuffs. On the other hand, if you stay off campus moving tho and fro between the school and the hostel might be expensive, time consuming or even impossible(For those that stay very far away from the school).

4.Proximity to information: Student staying in the school hostel always get  first hand information. As we all know, information is very crucial in the school settings. Information is what put you in the right direction, information is what helps you succeed in the school.

5.You will have broader knowledge: When it comes to knowing things, the school hostel is the best place to stay. This is because in there are up to 8 students in a particular room and as such they tend to always share information among themselves. Tell stories and personal experience on different subject matter relating to life, religion, socialization, sports etc. If you are deficient in any aspect, your room mates may be able to share information concerning that aspect.

This will broaden your knowledge on different subject matters.

6. Access to school facilities:Staying in the school hostel gives you easy and complete access to the school basic amenities like electricity,water,health care services,library,relaxation centers, school wifi etc.

In the school hostel, the electricity supply is almost constant, and as such student can go the extra mile when it comes to using the internet to get more information and learn more since there’s constant power as well as school wifi.

On the other hand, when staying off campus, you will have to depend on the electricity of that community and also you depend on the water provided by your hostel. You might be lucky to stay in a good place with good supply of power.

7. Improves your academic performance: A lot of my friends have use staying in hostel to improve their academic performance.

This is because when you stay in the school hostel, you see a lot of student serious with their academics( tho there are still unserious ones too) you can easily pair up with them, ask for assistance if you happen to offer the same course, go to night class with them all for the purpose of boosting your academic performance.

8. You will learn to tolerate people: This is a great advantage dear, a lot of year one student don’t really know how to mingle and tolerate their fellow student.

Staying in the school hostel where there are up to 8-12 student in a room, if not more will teach you how to mingle, relate and tolerate people with different characters and attitudes.

Since you all share the same resources like toilet, water, socket, light , fan etc. you will gradually learn to tolerate your room mates with bad attitudes and manners in other for you to stay with them peacefully.

Those are the advantages and reasons why you might consider staying in the school hostel.

There is this saying that goes thus:

“If something has advantages, there must also be disadvantages”

Some of the disadvantages of staying in the school hostel are listed below:

  1. The rate of stealing is very high
  2. The school hostel is very noisy
  3. There is no privacy in the school hostel
  4. You cannot choose your room mates
  5. You might be given a bad room mate
  6. Hygiene
