INFRASTRUCTURE & TRANSPORTATION

There is a provision for hostel facilities only for Catholic students. Since the college is located in Park Street, there are no such PG or hostels available except for two hostels and one PG(the fees is moderately high). The food served in college is overall good and are available at a subsidised rate. Classroom atmosphere is moderately good and since this is an ARTS college so there are no labs. We have one of the biggest libraries in our college with a collection of thousands of books.

The hostel is only for catholic students on the campus. PGA's are good outside the college. The food is good and the code is 25 for the veg meal. Infrastructure is kind of more like an old Christian school.

The building is a large one and has a church next to it. The food served is fresh and healthy. The classrooms are regularly cleaned as well.
