    Three hostels are there, providing accommodation to more than 5000 students. Apart from this anyone seeking food and lodging outside the campus then nothing to worry about. The food at the hostels isn't so bad and only we have to pay INR 2000 for this. The funds available to a central University is high so the quality of the buildings and infrastructure is really of a high standard.
