  • There are a lot of hostels or halls as we call it, here. Usually the first years stay in one hall and move to a different hall the second year onwards. Interhall championships are a serious thing here, and you can involve many events. Halls don't have any specific fees, though mess fees is Rs. 12,000 per semester which is already included in the total fees.
  • Food is not good, and you might start missing your home food. There are a lot of canteens and you always have a place to eat 24 hours a day.
  • Classrooms and Labs are of international standards. Library is state of art and is one of the biggest in India, but you won't find books other than academics. Wifi is available throughout the 2200 acre campus, and when in room you can also use your LAN ports for more high speed access. The campus is huge and you won't be able to explore everything easily.

This large campus is toatally WI-FI whch provides a very high speed internet. Campus consists of all kinds of labs and Central Library which is one of the largest technical library in Asia. Campus has proper arena for every sports.  

HOSTELS & FOOD
Hostel are very good with LAN connectivity in every room and WI-FI enabled. Every hostel has space allocated for major sports and has music room library , gym etc Mess are not good as expected. I have been IIT bombay, the mess food there is much better than ours but still its eatable.
