Here at SMVDU the classrooms are well lighted and well managed. All classrooms and Lecture halls are equipped with projectors, Black boards and White boards. The labs in the Computer Science School are equipped with the latest RAMs and operating systems in all the systems. And all the different kinds of softwares needed for the semester are installed in advance. Their are Mess Halls(for dining purposes) separately in each hostel. A shopping complex comprising of various shops for day to day needs and stalls for eating. There are 2 Girls hostels and 5 Boys hostels respectively in the campus itself. Each hostel is supplied with a Wi-Fi system for internet usage and their are personal IPs and Login Details for each student of SMVDU. The college campus is very large and greeny as in comprised of natural beauty. The Trikuta Hills can be seen in the background of the scenic beauty. For the transportation facility, their are metadors available every half an hour just outside the college campus at the college entrances. But the metadors are mostly populated and you may not get a seat while travelling. But on the contrary if you are in a group then you can easily rent a Taxi for your transportation between Jammu and SMVDU. The neighbouring area includes a village named Reasi, Panthal and just outside the campus entrances you can find various local vendors and shops for your daily Requirements.

At SMVDU there is only one option of on campus staying i.e. Hostels. There is no off campus choice. I am availing as obvious the hostels provided by SMVDU which are well furnished and comprises of a Mess Facility for each hostel.  Their is no choice in food but their is also a Canteen facility available where you can pay and eat per their Menus and availability of food. As this college is named after the holy goddess so the food provided in our Mess Facilities is pure Vegetarian but if you want to go for Non-Veg then you can always go outside the campus for the same.
