The increase in the number of undergraduate students and the inability of the School authorities to provide adequate hostel accommodation, has led to cohabitation among undergraduate students in some Nigerian public universities. The study adopted rational choice theory as a theoretical framework to explain cohabitation among undergraduate students of University of Ibadan. Full time undergraduate students in the University of Ibadan constituted the study population. The study utilized both quantitative and qualitative methods of data collection and analysis on three hundred respondents. Cohabitation among the undergraduates of university of Ibadan students is quite common and  was caused mainly by lack of accommodation, problems with roommates, lack of privacy and the need to be close and intimate with ones lover.
