IIT Kharagpur provides on-campus residential facilities to its students, research scholars, faculty members and many of its staff.[74][75] The students live in hostels (referred to as halls) throughout their stay in the IIT.[76] Hostel rooms are wired for internet, for which students pay a compulsory charge. Most of the rooms in the older halls of residences are designed to accommodate one student, but due to the scarcity of sufficient student accommodation, two students share the single seater room in first two years. The new rooms of Lal Bahadur Shastri hall & new blocks of few other halls of residence accommodate three students in one room.
