Ahmadu Bello University ABU Zaria School Fees for Freshers


The ABU University has one of the largest student bodies in Nigeria, if not the largest, with many departments and faculties. Ahmadu Bello University has very low tuition, making it affordable to the average Nigerian.

The federal government of Nigeria bears the majority of the cost of running the university, thus students do not have to pay as much.

Ahmadu Bello University is one of the most difficult universities in the country to get into since it is highly competitive and has a strong reputation, thus everyone wants to attend there.

ABU provides its students with nice dorms, well-equipped libraries, a strong road network, and so on. Its tuition and fees, like those of most federal colleges, are also relatively low.

I am pleased to inform you that at the end of this article, you will be aware of ABU school fees, ABU acceptance price, ABU housing charge, and a brief history of the institution.

Ahmadu Bello University hostel accommodation fee 2023

Hostel rooms are really affordable. In comparison to the number of students at the school, the bed space is relatively tiny. So it’s a case of survival of the fittest. The housing charge at ABU Hostel is fourteen thousand naira (#14000).

The ABU hostel accommodation pricing is not variable based on faculty/courses or indigenization; rather, it is a fixed rate for a specific group of students.
