There are 11 hostels in our campus. 2 for girls and 8 for boys and 2 for married couples. The hostel fee varies from each hostel and it may costs of 5 to 6k per semester. Food is average in hostel( not so yummy especially if you are from south) and mess fee varies from 12 to 15k per semester. 1st year theory classes will be held in huge lecture avenue (LA)halls.(some labs will be held in LA while rest will be held in department).

Class timings changes for each day. Each semester consists of 5 theory courses and 3 lab courses.( Theory courses can also be 6 and it depends on the student performance after 1st year). In each week you can have 2 half days and three full days(it can be fluctuate). Sat and sundays are holidays. Teaching method depends on the professor. Some profs use conventional board and chalk method and some uses projector to teach. Although all profs cant be effective in teaching, you can find some best profs and some bitter ones too and it depends on your luck. Some might be very strict and cruel while some might be very friendly. We cant judge each and every prof completely.

If the parents income is less than 1lpa, then the tuition fee will be waived off and rest fee dues like hostel, mess and medical fee will be required to pay. Per semester approximately 30 to 33 thousand fee can be asked to pay for students with income below 1lpa. For students with parents income between 1 and 5lpa, 70 percent of the tuition fee will be waived off. Fir ST and SC's tuition fee will be waived off completely without regarding parents income. Regarding scholarships, NIT Rourkela has provided better scholarship schemes but only minority category students are eligible for it(ST and SC's) including OBC's. General category students hardly find scholarship. Loans are required if necessary for the students with their parents income above 5lpa.
