UNILAG Hostel Allocation Portal has various issues ranging from usability to security vulnerability. These usability issues often results in the extortion of students by cyber cafés within the school.
1) MOBILE RESPONSIVENESS: if you’re accessing the portal from a mobile device, you might not be able to go beyond the dashboard, after logging in. This is because the navigation menu where you’re supposed to use to click on the ALLOCATE NOW link which will take you to the allocation page is not usable. I could remember several people calling me to know what to do In order to fix this, use Responsive Mobile Menu, jQuery mmenu or Slick Nav.
2) TRAFFIC HANDLING: Before developing a portal as big as that, you should know how much traffic you’re expecting and work on how to handle it. According to estimates, UNILAG has about 45,000 students. Meganet Limited should have put that into consideration and make provision for such. This will make it easier and faster for students to get allocation.
3) VULNERABILITY: There’s a big vulnerability on the portal that I wouldn’t want to describe here because of it’s sensitivity. When I discovered it, I tried contacting Meganet Limited and the Student Affairs Unit but my efforts yielded no results. I hope they find and fix this vulnerability ASAP before the bad guys come in contact with it.
PS: I will be available to talk further on the vulnerability to only authorized persons from Meganet Limited or UNILAG. BBM PIN: 75D125C7.
These 3 issues are very important and long overdue. I hope Meganet Limited will work on fixing them before the next Hostel Allocation Exercise.
