Campus Conflict – UNILORIN VS FUNAAB Which School Has The Toughest Dress code?

Campus Conflict

It’s another campus conflict post today, first, we don’t like to cause trouble. We only like small drama, just small that may eventually cause trouble.

Now that we’ve established that, we can go on with our weekly no trouble causing ‘Campus Conflict’

This week, we are looking at two schools from the West, UNILORIN and FUNAAB, and we’re comparing both in line with their dress sense.

It’s true that there may be circumstances of these schools that are hindering progress in their fashion sense. Let’s take a look at these:


Campus Conflict - UNILORIN dress code

With the ever-growing styles in the fashion scene in Nigeria, this school has successfully created restrictions on what students can and cannot wear in the school premises.

In UNILORIN, they don’t allow females to make their hair with attachments with other colours. This will ultimately affect girls who like to use them.

Also, the school has set restrictions on the following:

  1. Dress that exposes any sensitive parts of the body e.g. cleavage, chest, back, navel, thigh and armpit (clothes that reveal the armpits when hands are raised e.g. sleeveless/half sleeves)
  2. Tight fitting wears
  3. Transparent / See Through Wears
  4. Tattered Jeans/Ripped Jeans
  5. T-shirts with obscene inscriptions, depicting immorality, hooliganism, etc.
  6. Indelible markings and body tattoos by male students
  7. Leggings / Jeggings trousers with cropped top
  8. Skimpy dresses e.g. Spaghetti, Camisole only, body hug, topless blouse and shorts
  9. Knickers
  10. Bathroom slippers not acceptable within the administrative and academic areas
  11. Heavy make-ups
  12. Sagging trousers
  13. Wearing of earrings by male students
  14. Rumpled and dirty clothes
  15. Skin/ear piercing by male students
  16. Dread, Galax, Fadeout and Rough Coil Haircuts, Unkempt Appearance
  17. Hair plaiting or weaving by male students.

Reading this list would remind many people of secondary school.

Again, are the students of UNILORIN underage and should a university be extremely concerned about what students are wearing instead of their academics.

Till we stop seeing members of the opposite sex as a sexual object, dressing will always be a secondary thing to the cause of sexual harassment and rape.

So decide how these rules affect students of UNILORIN.

FUNAAB Dress Code

Did You know that in FUNAAB males and females are not allowed to wear shorts?

So moving on to FUNAAB, while this school may be subtle about their own restrictions, to an extent some of these restrictions are just outrageous.

In FUNAAB, they don’t allow female students to use paint their nails. Why these restrictions are targeted mostly to females, we would never know!

Also, in 2017, the school set a ban against wearing hijab around school premises for security purposes.

So here are some of their restrictions:

  • Head: Neat hair cut without patterns
  • Jewellery: Moderate jewellery without earrings.  
  • Clothes: Upper Torso – There should be no exposure of the upper part of the body. Lower Torso – Fastening of trousers below the waistline “sagging” is not allowed.
  • Foot Wears: Wear a good pair of sandals, covered shoes, or work shoes.  Protective boots for farm work only
  • Head: Wear neat and decent hairstyles.
  • Neck and Ear: Moderate but not bogus pieces of jewellery.
  • Clothes: Upper – Torso-top should not expose the upper part of the body.
  • (a) No exposure of the upper torso.
  • (b) Strapless dresses and spaghetti strap blouses without a jacket should not be worn.
  • (c) Body hugs should not be worn without jackets.
  • (d) Revealing blouses such as those that expose the navel and breast should not be worn.
  • Lower Torso – Clothes should be chosen to cover from the waist to, at least, the knee in all postures
  • we do not allow Hip stand trousers without belts and blouses that cover to the hips. No sagging of trousers.
  • Foot Wears
  • Sandals or covered corporate shoes and decent slippers should be worn.
  • Students must be corporately dressed for special ceremonies namely: Matriculation, Convocation e.t.c.

In Conclusion:

So, dressing is the art of wearing cloth, to put on clothing, to put on or wear a formal, elaborate, or fancy cloth.  
The function of dressing is to:

Provide warmth and protection, identify the wearer (by providing information about sex, age, occupation, or other characteristics and make the wearer appear more attractive)

As tempting as it can be to dress anyhow, modesty is always key, especially if you are in a place which demands you dress modestly.

I hope you enjoyed this read. Do you have dress restrictions in your campus?

I don’t even know what is wrong with these schools… shey this one is secondary school?


It’s sad that education is not the priority for these schools, instead they made out time to even make billboards for dress codes. SMH


Really? there are schools like this?


I’m tired of Nigerians and their hypocrisy…
