Bachelor of Science [B.Sc] (Physics), batch of 2022

10-12 hostel blocks, accomodating a total of 3000 students. No two hostel blocks are alike. Hostel and mess fees: ₹5000 per month. No idea about PGs I would say its far better than what I have heard about other colleges. There are 4 messes: A: South Indian Veg, B : North Indian composite, C: South Indian composite, D: North Indian Veg. We get 4 meals a day. We get chicken 4 days a week, fish twice and mutton once a week. All other meals in lunch and dinner have eggs. This is in 2 composite messes. The 2 veg messes give fair share of decent dishes as well. Mess charges are included in Hostel and Mess charges, which is 5000 per month. No additional amount need to be paid. There's WiFi in nearly every building, other than hostels. That's a big issue we are dealing with and will be sorted out soon. Besides, there are certain common rooms meant for sitting and surfing using the high speed IISc WLAN. High speed is required for the state of art research and laboratories. The JN Tata Memorial Library is one of the best institute libraries across the country. Some labs have exquisite instruments with high end facilities and security systems, while some UG Labs need a little improvement, which are bound to happen. Besides, there is a Gymkhana, which includes courts for Badminton, tennis, a gymnasium, equipment for chess, billiards and many other games. Outside the Gymkhana building, there are grounds for football, cricket and a ground meant for common sports and athletics. There is a table for Table-tennis in nearly every hostel and of course in Gymkhana as well. There are 3 standard cafeterias and one restaurant, which stay open covering 'together' a wide range around the clock, starting from 7 in the morning to 2 in the night.

There are close to 7 hostels for boys and 3 for girls. The construction of new hostels is in progress. Hostel bill is INR 1000 per month(maximum). Slight variation among hostels is there. Mess bill also varies depending on which mess you are in. It could range from INR 3000-4500 per month. All the amenities and infrastructure are great. Besides the library, there are lots of other places where you can study.
