*We are having 10 boys hostels and 2 girls hostels. Hostel fees are included in the semester fees. Mainly students from local area can stay outside but college doesn't allow staying outside. Here hostels are like homes. Quality of class is very nice. Food also good, specially ECE department lab are excellent and we do have some industrial tools like cadence, synopsis, mentor graphics. * This is the second largest campus after IIT-KGP.
