Eco Vatika is a park with few trees, chairs, and a narrow stream, located near the Ruby (girls) hostel. This is a popular chilling spot for girls. The Rock garden located near the college entrance is another hangout area to take rest after the long walks inside the campus. Another hangout area is the Oval Garden in front of the heritage building. It is a beautiful garden with lots of flowering plants and sculptures made out of plants.
