10 Official NYSC Camp Registration
1. Registration Documents:
Foreign graduates should take along important registration
documents used in registering at Abuja.
2. Call Up Letter:
This is a vital part of camp registration and the only evidence
that you are a prospective corps member (colloq. Corper, or
Otondo) and you are not impersonating anyone. This will be
taken from and not returned to you. So if at all you even forget
you luggage (lol) never forget this.
Tip: DO NOT LAMINATE IT! And keep it like its your life. I
know someone who was sent back because she forgot hers.
Also someone who had to beg and beg before his letter was
collected because he laminated his own copy. So please avoid
all these stress and make enough copies of this letter.

3. Final Year Student Identity CARD
4. Passport Photographs
This is very important. Take as many as you can, about 20 in
red backgrounds. You would need them at every registration
point mostly. Then those of you who would likely redeploy or
join one group or the other in camp, you would need more
5. Notification/Statement of Result from
6. Photocopies Of All Your Documents:
Now make about 5-10 copies of every document required.
There would be photocopiers in camp at mammy market but
trust me, it is double the price and it saves time.
Tip: The forms that will be handed to you are very easy to fill.
Attach your passport where necessary and fill them correctly.
After your registration, you will be issued with your State Code
Number. This will be like your PIN throughout your Service
7. Stationery: Pen, Paper, Gum, Tippex.
Yeah this saves time and lots of unnecessary begging.
Tip: Some camps do seize staplers at the gate during check-in.
So do not forget to include pins in your stapler if you are
taking that along.
Tip: After getting your NYSC State Code Number, you can
proceed to claim your NYSC Kit and Mattress after which you
can proceed to get a Room. After you have gotten your kit and
secured a place in the hostels, you can settle down and you
are good to go to start the Military parades.
8. Certificates / Licenses:
For Doctors, Pharmacists, Nurses & Lab Scientists, take along
your proof of certification.
Now, Your NYSC kit should contain: 1 NYSC Crested Vest, A
pair of Khaki Trousers, Cap and Jacket, 2 White T-shirts,
2 Pairs of Knickers, 2 pairs of green-stripped Stockings,
A Pair of Orange Jungle Boots and One Pair of White
Converse. A “Belt” is also included.
9. Round-Necked White T-Shirts:
This is an essential outfit in camp in fact in most camps this is
the only allowed cloth to be worn throughout your 3 weeks.
Even to church, you might not be allowed to wear colored
You would be given 2 pairs of white t-shirts at camp to just
fulfill all righteousness which surely would never be your size
especially our very slim and small otondo in size . So you can
bring extra pairs (6). Why? Because you probably wont have
time to wash during the week after being stressed out from
the parades and Man-O-War drills.
Tip: Do not carry more than 2 pairs of colored clothes because
you wont need it.
10. White Shorts:
I beg you please do bring yours. you would also be given 2
pairs of shorts which are really poor in material. They tear
easily and it can be annoying. So my dear Otondos bring like 4
pairs of shorts. Trust me also you wont like to wash
everyday, so bring enough to last you like 3 days so that you
wont be stranded.
