I had few of my friends in hostels as well as PGs, money wise PGs are more expensive compared to hostels, christ university has got a very good hostel with good food as well but the only concern was the hostel department were very strict with the timings they follow.
Since I personally live in a PG near by I do not know about the conditions of the hostel of the college. The average PG rent is around Rs 10000 p.m. This includes 3 time meal, wifi, washing machines, personal bathroom and generator facilities. Most of the PGs are located about 500 m from the entrance of the college.
In the college, you'll find a good mix of people from different parts of the country. Therefore, a good place to expand your cultural horizons. I'm a North Indian who needed two spoons to eat rice when I first came here. Now all I need is a banana leaf and my hands. And I've developed an enormous appetite for all kinds of rice.
There are 2-3 hostels of the university and all the hostels by university will not provide food facility to the students they have to make their own arrangements and there are many canteens in the campus so that they can have there. There are many PGs around university with and without food which costs around 6000 per month at basic and it ranges up to 15000 depends upon the facilities provided.
No food in the hostel so most students prefer staying outside the campus in a pg there is no mess but canteens in the hostel are good and serve good food at reasonable prices. The juice corner is awesome and my favorite is butter fruit shake average rents in and around Christ is Rs 4000 for a single bed. But if you are looking at clean room, nice people around you then may be it will climb to Rs 6,000. Boys may find cheaper accommodations but for girls, safer accommodations means higher rents.
University does not provide food for students who stays in hostel but provide comfortable rooms, clean washrooms etc food can be taken from college contacts through college authorities library facility is given prayers room is also provided student are allowed to ask any need to the authorities.
The boys hostel in the campus is called Devadan Hall which consists of four blocks namely A,B,C and D. Each Block has 4 floors. The hostel provides rooms of three sharing and four sharing, which are well maintained and kept.There is only a common washroom for every student in a particular floor. There is also a girls hostel in campus, but it is only for MBA female Students. The hostel for the Undergraduate girls is situated around 100-200 meters from the campus main gate. It is called Jyothi Nyala. There is no mess in campus, only 6 canteens so we are given the freedom and liberty to eat from anyone of them.
Hostel was not available at my time however it has come up now.not aware of rates though. Mess and cafeteria were plenty with food at very nominal rates. All kind of food were available from north i dia. To aouth indian. All variety of food capacity of 500 student each
I did not live in the hostel provided outside the campus but through a friend's experience I can tell it was pretty much Okay,there was no food facility as such and it really think Christ needs to provide a permanent solution for students like me who come from outside the state.
Christ University is located in Hosur Road, its nearby places are S.G Palya, Madiwala, Taverekare, Bannerghatta and Kormangala. All these places is well occupied with lots of PGs and appartments with and without food. College provides hostel facilities to girls within the campus known as Jonas Hall and for PG gents Chavara Hall where the rate is too low comparing to outside PGs but only drawback is there is no food facility in the hostel.
