Design and implementation of a computerized hostel allocation system

ABSTRACT

This Project work intends to address some of the problems encountered in the allocation of hostels to students manually in Universities, using University of Calabar as the case study. The growing number of students in higher institutions posed a lot of accommodation problems on the part of students and school management. Some of the problems encountered include, few hostels that exist in the University are not properly managed, statistic of rooms required to match the growing number of students are farfetched, students who have paid hostel fees  may end up not getting rooms because of lack of bed, Hostel administrators cannot give accurate information of the occupancy of a particular room. In respect to all of these existing problems, it became necessary to design a system capable of managing a database which allocates hostel to student. The system to be designed will keep track of all the available rooms and its occupants. This hostel management system was implemented using HTML, PHP and MySQL.

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

 

1.1.0    GENERAL INTRODUCTION

It is safe to say that most activities such as hostel allocation carried out in most universities in Nigeria are done manually. Therefore, there is a lot of strain on the individuals running the hostels. An E-Hostel system is simply software developed for managing most activities that take place in the hostels with the help of a hostel administrator.

The goal of this research work is to provide a solution to the problem of hostel management, by designing a computerized system which is user-friendly and GUI-oriented that will be compatible with the existing manual systems. The software to be developed will solve the problem of hostel management; thus helping to reduce problems associated with the manual hostel management system. The project uses University of Calabar as Case Study.

 

1.2.0    INTRODUCTION

This chapter introduces the study and provides relevant information on the background of the study. It begins with problem definition (statement of the problem) which describes the major problems associated with manual hostel management. This is followed by the research objective putting in a nutshell what is to be achieved by the study. Subsequently, the Research Justification is presented, which justifies the essence of the research. The Research Methodology describes the procedures used in conducting the research. Scope and Limitation discusses the area the research is limited to and also highlights the constraints encountered during the course of this work. Finally, there is definition of terms and chapter layout which defines peculiar terms related to the study alone and summarizes the entire chapters respectively.
