First year the room is given on a sharing basis which seem to quite small to fit two people. But from the second year, single rooms are given whose size is fairly manageable. Facilities in hostel are quite good which include 2-3 washing machines per floor, multipurpose playground, badminton court, basketball court, kits for most games, TT Table, Billiards (in some hostels), Foosball etc. Mess food is not very tasty but healthy. Utmost care is taken by the institute to ensure the quality of food and cleanliness. There are also multiple canteens in the college and some of them even operate over the night. There are also quite good number of restaurants around the institute.
Hostel facilities was average. There was two types of rooms in ours postals, one was single and another was sharing room. we had dispenser in each wings and Washing machine in each diagonal Bathroom. we had also a water cooler which was donated from one of our Alumni. we had a beautiful garden in half middle of hostel and a small playground of another half. The mess food was average. we had different types of Mess like North Indian, South Indian, Jain Food, Food court. Food quality was average.
The Ascendas I.T park, being very near to the boys hostel, is the most common hang-out place for the students. It has a huge food court which houses restaurants like McDonalds, KFC, Subway, Pizza Hut, etc.; other than this the nearby places would be Dominos pizza, Wang's kitchen, etc.On an average, classes take up about 24 hours of every week, with saturdays and sundays being holidays. Late night chats with friends, and hanging out in the CCD located inside the campus are the most common pastimes every weekend. There’s a million things to pursue, provided you find the time and provided you’re able to handle your rigorous academic schedule side by side.
Hostel facilities are good now. It was really bad earlier for girls. Now there are few new hostels for girls and they are all built very well. There are lot of common space inside the hostel and facilities like TV, library etc are accessible inside the hostel.
Quality wise both hostel facilities and mess food are very good. They will provide each student separate room with single cot and 24h internet facility. Each and every hostel has separate TV room and washing me-chins, paper room and sports equipment and so on.While coming to the mess they will provide breakfast, lunch and dinner with different varieties. Morning and evening they will provide milk, coffee and tea. In break fast everyday bread is available. For lunch and dinner there will be two items and four curries along with chips.
This is the worst part if there is one. Hostel life is amazing. You get single rooms, with much more personal space. But the mess is a living hell. The food is like shit to mention the least. Most of them cant adjust with the menu here. But things are changing quick enough. Standards are being raised, and quality is improving.
Hostel and mess food is not that much good as many of us have grown in some part of country and staying in other part so i think that the hotel food outside mess is good than mess food according to me but its okay for some of the people who have already stayed in hostel before.
First year it is shared accommodation and from second year single rooms are available with unlimited internet connection mess food is not that good but bearable both hostel and mess account to around 100 rupees per day which is very less compared to average rent outside.
Hostel facilities are average. Mess facilities are also average. Hostel rooms are small and there is just enough space for a single bed, a study table and a wardrobe. The maintenance of hostels is quite average as well and students are responsible for ensuring cleanliness of their rooms and common areas. Food is average, but there are plenty of joints outside the college campus.
Not that great! But you have lot of eateries over there. Don't get upset, the other things will compensate the lag that happens here you can try cooking small items in your room. The campus is at the center of city, so you can find a lot of eateries around.
