    • Eligible students facing financial challenges can expect support from the University.
    • This assistance can be availed by contacting the Dean, Student Affairs Division.
  5. Triple A Initiative:
    • Under the innovative “Triple A (Adopt an Akokite)” project, alumni and philanthropic Nigerians are given the opportunity to support a student’s journey at the University.
    • More details on this laudable initiative can be found on the official UNILAG website.
  6. Pay for Mentors Project:
    • Aimed at nurturing the brightest minds, the University introduces the “Pay for Mentors Project”.
    • This is yet another stride by UNILAG to enhance the academic environment for its exceptional students.
  7. Collaboration with Lagos BRT:
    • To address transportation concerns, the Management has successfully collaborated with the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA).
    • As a result, additional BRT dedicated routes will now cater to students commuting from the Berger Bus Stop axis and the Oshodi/Iyana Ipaja areas in Lagos State.

The University wishes to emphasise that these strategies are dynamic. Continuous reviews and enhancements will be made to serve the community better. Students, parents, and guardians are assured of the unwavering commitment of the UNILAG Management towards their welfare.
