Hostel For Male

The college provided us with hostel accomodation where we gt a residential campus. The mess was included in the total hostel fees. We used to get 4 meals a day, morning breakfast, lunch, evening snacks and dinner. Hostel was compulsory for each and every student so that the faculties can ask for classes at any point of the day.

Hostel Fees per semester
  • Hostel Fees (Male)
    5.24 L
  • Hostel Fees (Female)
    5.24 L
Hostel For Female

It's a residential college and everyone including faculty and staffs stays inside the campus. The hostel is quite good, there is air conditioning and the rooms are shared by 2 students. There is good ventilation and the rooms are spacious. There is a common washroom for each floor which can be seen as a negative issue. However, the rooms are clean and all the infrastructural issues are resolved efficiently in an online ticket raising process. A fraction of our fees go to accommodation.
