Hostels are few in number with 2 hostels for boys and girls a d open to only students falling under a minimum income line. PGs are in abundance and range from economic to single flats depending on the requirement of the student. Food in the college is very good with 5 canteens inside premises offering food at reasonable rates. Classrooms are like typical government-funded universities. Not all classrooms have AC, libraries and labs have ACs. There is no campus Wi-Fi.

There are a total of 4 separate hostel buildings. 2 for boys and 2 for girls. The fee per month is around INR 100. If anyone doesn't want to opt for University hostel, the may avail other PG and Mess facilities outside the campus which would cost them around INR 4000 per month on an average. The food in the college is very good and tasty. The canteens are subsidised by the State Government and you can buy food at cheap rates. A filling lunch at a JU canteen can cost around INR 30. Infrastructure is moderately developed. Wifi facility is not that well developed. Though, the classrooms are clean. The computer lab and library is quite upgraded and useful.

The hostel is for the economically deprived and so the fees are not the for the matter of discussion. There is 1 hostel inside the main branch, 1 at a 5 min distance from the main branch and 1 in the Salt Lake branch. There are a lot of options for students of Jadavpur. Most of us live outside the university premises. You can opt for a flat with other mates and also look for a PG nearby. The cost is not much around here. I give a rent of 2400 per person for a 2bhk flat with 3 of my other mates. The PGs are a little at the lower end. The food of the college is good and the canteens are well maintained. If you want to know about per meal cost then for a vegetarian it would not cost more than ₹40 per meal and for a non-vegetarian ₹50 per meal. The classrooms are not the best of it. We have WiFi at our university which is good enough. The libraries are awesome. We have a central library and 16 other libraries department wise. The infrastructure is not very overwhelming but it is nice. We have a huge playground and a cricket ground (in the Salt Lake branch). We have basketball, volleyball and tennis court. We also have an area to play badminton.

Two hostels are there. Hostel facilities are fair and the rooms are just to be expected in a government engineering college. Food is healthy and tasty. PG options are there near the campus which is affordable. Classrooms are being converted to Smart Classrooms. Labs are state of the art and equipped with modern instruments. There is one central library and a library in each department to cater to the needs.

There is more than one hostel for boys and only 1 girls hostel for each campus (Main campus & Salt Lake campus). Mess, PGs are available everywhere around college. Fees are reasonable and depend on the facilities. There are total 11 canteens in both of the campuses, so food price is different in different canteens. Overall infrastructure is very good by keeping in mind that the semester fee is extremely low, when compared to other colleges.

HI SACHIN!!

HOSTEL FACILITIES

The number of seats in the hostel are very limited. Priority is given on the basis of distance of home from Kolkata, annual household income and quota. The amount to be paid per month used to be around Rs 800/- and this included mess food.
