Infrastructurally, Manipal Institute of Technology is one of the best campuses throughout the country. There are some 20-22 hostels dedicated to students of all courses and 5 food courts and mess facilities. The hostel fee ranges from 50k a year to about 1.8 lakh depending on the facilities provided.
The hostel mess provides a wide variety of food, both North Indian and South Indian, and are comfortably located throughout the campus. The cost of the food is included within the hostel fee itself. There are various accommodation options outside the college as well at comparable rates.
One of the strongpoints that the college has is the infrastructural developments in the academic area. The campus is huge and has every facility required for research and experimentation. With the best state of the art equipments available to the faculty and students and the latest software bundles at their disposal, the college ranks in the top tier of the nation's engineering and scientific research.
A 4 storeyed fully equipped library provides for all the answers that an enthusiast engineer seeks, only if he/she understands what they are looking for. With best journals and publications from across the country, this is one of the biggest assets of the college.
The hostels you are allocated here are only based on merit and this is something i think the college should change, as students should be allowed to freely choose whichever hostel they are comfortable with. However, the rooms are pretty good. The non AC rooms are very spacious and it gives you a very homey feeling with very clean surroundings. The AC rooms, although a bit small have a very luxurious feel to it. I stayed in an AC room for a semester and it felt like i was staying in a hotel.
The fees per year range from 80,000 (for non-ac rooms) to 1,50,000 (for ac rooms).
There are many options for staying outside the campus as well. There are PG's, Apartments, Hostels etc. I am not too sure of the rates outside the campus as i have never stayed outside, but the monthly rent for one of my friends living in an apartment was 18,000.
There are lots of options if you're looking for food on campus. You have to join the mess compulsorily in your 1st year and it wasn't that great to be honest because the food becomes repetitive. But when i visited the mess recently, i found their food better than what it was before, so they have gradually improved. There are many other messes and canteens within the campus and they range from North Indian food to South Indian food.
The mess fees per year were 40,000.
The quality of the classrooms here was really amazing. I was really surprised when i stepped into my class for the first time, as it was huge and lit and the furniture was brand new. We have a huge library within the campus, there is a huge sports arena called Marena just outside the campus and this was the most incredible building I've ever seen in my life. Especially for a sports complex, it exceeded my expectations as I'm an athlete myself. The campus houses 3 huge grounds for football, cricket and hockey.
The labs here are extremely well maintained and are filled with equipment. For us especially, we could work on various car parts and get a lot of hands-on experience.
There is Wifi for each and every student who stays in the hostel. The speed is usually 1mbps and a limit of 30gb per month after which you will have to pay for the additional package.
There are currently a total of 20+ hostel blocks, out of which half are girls blocks and the rest are boys blocks, all the hostels have great infrastructure and facilities. Each hostel has several wardens appointed and caretakers to take care of the students' well being and safety. Each block has different fees depending on which type of room it is. Other than the hostels there are pgs and appartments available for students within campus vicinity. The campus has several food mess, veg and non veg separated with good hygenic food and for those who are unable to enjoy their food there are other options available as well.
