There are six hostels in the main campus with a total bed capacity of 800 students. The proximity of the hostels to the administration and tuition area and security make the former the preferred place to stay. The limited bed capacity provided by the hostels is supplemented by a number of privately run hostels near the main campus. A team coordinated from the department periodically assesses the quality and standards of the hostels and advises students seeking accommodation accordingly. Conversely the team advises the management of the private hostels on the standards expected of their facilities.
