Provision of housing accommodation to students of higher institutions has been a great challenge over the years. Various efforts had been made both by the government and private individuals/organisations to assuage this situation but astronomical increase in the number of students gaining admission into the available institutions has all the time dwarf these efforts. This study therefore examined the factors motivating students to stay in the hostels. Questionnaires were administered on 325 students in the Bells University of Technology and Crawford University. The data collected were analysed using frequency distribution and mean. . The study found that electricity supply, peer/friendship influence, security, parental influence and water supply are mostly the factors motivating students to stay in the hostel. Following these findings, the study recommends that hostel providers should take critical look into and incorporate these factors that motivate students to stay in the hostel. This study is expected to serve as a guide to new hostel providers.
