Girls have around 9 hostel building where as boys have around 17 or 18 hostel buildings. The hostels are decent to live and study. Hostel fee depends on the type you want to choose. People within perimeter of 60kms can be day scholars and they should be living with their parents. The food is also managable most of the time. But you can always go to restaurants inside or outside of college or order food. Coming to quality of classrooms and labs and library, they are in good condition. Library is very big and has a collection of large number of books. Totally VIT has a good infrastructure
