5. The School Library-Am sure people will lash me for 

not putting it in number one but its due to my 

personality as I am not the library type, cuz I 

entered the library just 3 times in 5 years and not 

to read but to make photocopies (loolz), but trust 

Unilag, this shows in my grades and in the number 

of years spent on campus. So if you are of my 

personality, I will still suggest you visit the library 

more frequently than I did, say like 4 times in 5 

years *winks* if not…you know my story right??

4. Jekaplay-This is located directly under the 2001 

café. It is a chillzone (fun spot) and when the 

stress of registration and lectures is getting to you, 

you can always run down here to have fun. With 

the latest games and high resolution tvs, chilled 

drinks, snacks and best toast bread in school 

Jekaplay is a place you should visit in your 1st week 

in school.

3. Unilag fm-This is the pride of the university as it 

is the 1st university radio station. 103.1 fm (I 

suggest you listen as information concerning 

school activities are usually passed every 

morning) is the frequency and its was formally 

located at the 7th floor of the tallest building in 

the university “the senate building”, 4 floors 

below the vice chancellor’s office but now at the 

mass communication department behind Afe 

Babalola hall. Unilag fm boasts of the best 

student presenters you can think of. You should 

pay the station a visit and see how broadcasting 

is being done.

2. 2001 Café-This is the biggest café in school and it 

is located at the heart of the school “new hall” 

opposite access bank. The 2001 café boast of over 

15 food booths of different tastes, quality and 

origin. There is no food, I repeat there is no food 

you are looking for that you won’t find here. My 

personal choice; JC canteen has the best jollof and 

fried rice and that is the 2nd booth on your right 

while mascot has the best ofada stew that’s the 4th 

booth to the left. Calabar kitchen has the best of 

native soup ranging from idikainkong to afam, and 

that is the last booth to the left while the best 

bread and beans is of the 5th booth to the left after 

mascot. The best yam and egg is served by the 4th 

booth to the right while the best noodle is served 

by the 1st booth to the left. Before you eat out in 

all the small cafes I suggest you try out the, most 

famous café in the University of 1st Choice, 2001 


1. Lagoon Front- Even people that are not Unilag 

students come into school just to have a firsthand 

view of the popular Lagos lagoon. The lagoon front 

is located behind the library stretching down to 

the back of faculty of business admin to the left 

and back of faculty of sciences to the right. I spent 

most of my early days in school here even tho 

most of my lectures were at DLI. You can go there 

to see the overview of the 3rd mainland bridge, or 

see the lagoon or probably just chill and enjoy the 

fresh breeze. It’s also a good spot to take that girl 

you met during registration and classes and you 

have been trying to scope *winks* 5 years back 

there use to be boats for boat rides down to 

bariga and to the 3rd mainland bridge and back to 

the lagoon front but recent incidents ensued to 

prompt the school authorities to ban them.

NOTE: So that’s that about that. I want to congratulate 

you on gaining admission, study hard and party hard, cuz 

when you are done and you don’t do both you will regret 

one way or the other!!! And please stay off 

relationships!! You don’t need them now!! Just 

friendship is enough!!!…
