The hostel facility is decent enough with varied hostel facilities for the numerous premises. The hostel rooms are shared by 2/3 people with extremely cheap food facility. The average rent is 1100 rupees per month (when I passed out that is) excluding food, so that's an extremely cheap option.
Hostel Facility is really disappointing but we can say that in such a low amount we are getting more than enough. Hostel fees is 20/monthly. The hostel are not properly maintaned. The walls of the rooms are dirty and we are having a big problem during rainy season because of rain sewage.
The hostel and mess facilities at JU is efficient and accessible. There are many hostels for around 2000 university students, which charge reasonable fees not exceeding Rs 3000 per month. The food provided at the canteen is subsidised and of good quality. Food for a whole day can be availed at a cost as less as Rs. 150. The hostels and canteens are maintained well and hygiene is taken care of.
I did not opt for hostel. I stayed in a ladies PG near to the college. During my time, rents were somewhat around 5k including food and lodging. Food includes lunch and dinner. Food quality was good. Though it was called PG, but it was a kind of mess, where 50 girls were accommodated in a 3 storey building.
I was a day scholar so I do not have much idea about this but the expenses are nominal for sure. Accommodation for girls is not sufficient as per my information. The rooms are to be shared. Sorry it is difficult to write 250 words on something you do not really know about.
I have taken a 3BHK Flat with my friends in the neighboring area. You would only get the official hostel if your parents income is very low, that is below 1 lakh per annum. So i was not eligible. I have estimated my monthly expense of near about 7000-8000 thousand.
Jadavpur university has non residential campus hostels are provided to only those who are economiclly weak. Hostel fee is very low accommodation and food are average, not that good most students stay in PG, which quality depend on amount of money you spend.
Hostel is well furnished and good in condition bengali people are good in taste they make good food they give both veg and non veg food but Kolkata is a place of non vegetarian non vegetarian food are quite better and beautiful than that of vegetables.
Didn't stay in hostel. Was a day student. Had friends from hostel. Hostels are decent but rooms are scarce. There are 9 canteens inside the campus and dozens of eateries and restaurants nearby campus. Food of all shapes, sizes, tastes and price are available from the tasty to bland, from dirt cheap to expensive.
Hostels are cheaper too. The rent for living in the hostel Rs 5(Yes, I didn't believe it too when I came to know about it for first time ). People get internet connection in just Rs 20, which is unbelievable too. Food in hostel is worse than you can think of. But its, okay, university is providing people that much, so it is not a big deal.
