In Africa, boarding houses enjoy a popularity resembling that of the nineteenth- and early-twentieth centuries in the USA, for the same reasons. More reasonable in cost than buying a house or living in an apartment, a boarding house also eliminates the need to worry about food preparation. Many students, such as those attending school in Lagos, Nigeria, live in boarding houses. Many students come from distant villages and might not have family living in Lagos. And even if they do have family, there may not be room for them to stay. Or money to feed them.

The following menu provides an inkling as to what is served at Cayley College:
