This study predicts the reduction behavioral intention of students residing in universities hostel buildings, by examining the effect of socio-demographic background, using theory of planned behavior. A total sample of 234 (49.8%) students from Bayero University Kano and 236 (50.2%) from Ahmadu Bello University Zaria have completed the questionnaires that consist of measures related to their self-reported waste reduction behavioral intentions (RBI), attitudes, subjective norms and their behavioral control towards the waste reduction practice. Structural Equation Modeling (SME) were used, which predicts that subjective norms have strongest influence towards reduce behavioral practice, while perceived behaviour control is the second, finally attitude have a negative influence on RBI. In accordance this variables may likely improve the predictive validity of the existing conceptual models of waste reduction behavioral intentions for a green hostel buildings.
