The College has limited number of hostel accommodation for both male and female students. Three distinct hostels are presently available for the students; two for females while the remaining one is for the male students. Priority is usually given to 100 and 300 level students on the basis of first to come first to serve. However, there are enough off-campus hostel accommodation by private individuals within the neighbouring communities of Shango and Tungan Goro (Chanchaga). Students are expected to make personal arrangement for such accommodations.

All students officially allocated bed spaces in Hall of residence are made to sign an undertaking to be of good conduct and to abide by the following College rules and regulations:
- College authority is not under any obligation to provide students with hostel accommodation. Hence, allocation of bed space in Hall of residence is therefore a privilege and not a right.
- Rooms may be occupied on the day before the beginning of lectures, and through to the last day of the session.
- Rooms are rented on sessional basis. All rents are payable after allocation to the room(s) at the Accounts Department.
- Students who withdraw from the Hostel for any reason or who are dismissed or are requested to withdraw from the College for any reason whatsoever after the beginning of the session are not entitled to return to the hall or to any refund of accommodation fees or any other required charges.
- The right to room is not transferable. It is an offence punishable by fine and/or by expulsion from the hostel to make such transfer.
- Students are held liable for any careless or wilful destruction or damage of College property. Repair cost for proven damages/destruction will be charged to the student. Any damage to common room facilities shall be the collective responsibility of the students concerned.
- At the close of the session, expulsion from hostel or upon severance of their connection with any part of the work of College, students are required to return immediately all keys and other College property in their possession to the appropriate officer.
- Wilful failure to submit keys at close of session attracts strict penalty.

Sexual harassment is a gross misconduct. Which the College Management forbids. As a result, the College Management has put in place a committee known as Moral Conduct Committee (a.k.a Sexual Harassment Committee). A student is expected to report any case of sexual harassment to this committee. The office of the Chairperson to the committee is presently located at the Gado-Nasko Auditorium.
Sexual harassment involves verbal pressure or gestures for sexual activities or physical assaults including unwelcome or inappropriate promise of rewards in exchange for sexual favors like higher underserved grades in course. It is a violation of a student right as no one has the right to touch a student at any part of his/her body without his/her consent. Fresh female students are more at risk of being harassed than their male counterparts.
Every student should avoid being a victim of sexual harassment through the following ways;
- Dressing modestly and decently(see Section 4.25 on Dress Code)
