The Residential programme is a period set aside for Distance Learning students to come on campus and reside for a stipulated  period of time to:

  • have intensive revision of the courses that they have been studying individually or during study centre meetings with their facilitators
  • have a feel of campus life as university students
  • have enough time to study their course materials and
  • eventually write their examination.
In  Distance Learning Institute, the University of Lagos, you are given the privilege to reside in different halls of residence within the campus for the purpose of  the residential. 
This Session, the residential programme would commence on Monday the 30th of October, 2017. You would come on campus for revision and examination. This will last between 30th of October to the 17th of December. 
My candid counsel to you my student.
As you move into the halls of residence, kindly be conscious of the following
  1. You are here for something important.
  2. Your future is very important and you cannot afford to play with it.
  3. Be mindful of the major reason why you are on campus and do not play away your time.
  4. Watch the company you keep.
  5. Secure your life and your property.
  6.  Your self-esteem is to be protected.
  7. Do not do anything that will tarnish your image or drag your name to the mud.
I wish you well.
