Altogether there are 21 hostels in the university. Girls don't have to pay room rent as it is a Central University. The mess fee is around 10000 every semester.

The university offers PG and Ph.D. courses and its cost per month is the same as the Integrated courses. (varies for Ph.D.). The food cost Rs 65/ day, which is most affordable to every student and is above average. The University has excellent classrooms, labs, and other facilities.

1.There are around 8 hostels for Girls and 12 hostels for Boys. The P.hd  Scholars stay at Separate hostel. 

2.There are no such private provision of PGs as the hostels are enough to accomodate students. however if one wants to stay in PG then it's farer than Campus and they mostly charge 1000 per month without food.

3. I don't like the Hostel Mess food, yea it is apparent that we can't have the home made cusine taste in mess food. The Mess cooks don't use much of oil and spice which make the meals tasteless but there is no health hazard because of Mess Food. The cost per day is Rs. 65 which includes meals of Breakfast, Launch, Snakes in the evening and Dinner at night.
