ASSESSMENT OF FACTORS CONTRIBUTING TO POOR ENVIRONMENTAL SANITATION IN THE UNIVERSITY’S STUDENT’S MALE HOSTEL

Author: DR HAQUE, RABIU MUAZU MUSA
Abstract: A university is an institution where a high level of environmental sanitation should be observed. It is expected that environment, particularly the students’ hostel should be kept clean and tidy because of the health implication attached to the practice. This study aims to assess the factors responsible for the poor environmental sanitation in the male hostel of Bayero University, Kano. In a total of six hundred students living in both new and old campuses of the University were recruited to participate in this study. A developed and validated questionnaire was distributed to the students and their responses were collected. Descriptive statistics and percentages were used to assess the students’ responses. It was evident from the data obtained that 75% of the students sampled revealed no adequate personnel to clean the male hostels, 64% indicated no regular water supply and 59.1% reported lack of waste disposal facilities. However, 78.3 % agreed that the student’s attitude contributes to poor hygienic conditions in the hostels while 70.3% affirmed that there is a lack of maintenance of waste facilities. The findings of this study indicated that the male hostels of the University were not free from environmental problems.
