DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF AN INTERNET BASED HOSTEL ACCOMODATION ALLOCATION SYSTEM
BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
In Nigeria today and other countries, hostel management has become sophisticated that it used to be years age. The hostel however has been developed to solve the problem of accommodation for students, visitors and for reservation purposes.
Hundreds of student travels from their school to other schools during any reputable sports competition and visitation and for schooling purposes.

Thus, this research is aimed at finding system approach to computerize the hostel allocation system such that students can fill their hostel accommodation form online and check their allocation result online so that it can be processed at a high speed.
OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY
The main objective of this research is to provide an online system, which will help to speed preview hostel to students.

Therefore the presence of these computerized systems will help to update file accurately.
After the data or information of a student has been collected, this data includes Name, Department, Programme of study, state of origin etc. It is updated and then used for report making or accounting these reports obtained from updated files can be used for auditing by the board and polytechnic management teams.
