The hostels provide good food at very responsible rates, as the mess is managed by the students themselves, following a dividing system. Transportation is arranged for the residents to move in and out. They have all kinds of recreational amenities like T.V., telephone (incoming and outgoing), internet facilities, indoor and outdoor games, and facilities like postal and banking services in the campus. Another added attraction is round-the-clock power and water supply. There is a Hostel Advisory Council, headed by the Principal and Heads of all  Departments, Deputy Chief Warden and wardens of  Hostels. The Council meets often to discuss the policy matters and disciplinary steps relating to the hostels. In addition to this each hostel has a Hostel Council consisting of the Warden, Deputy Warden, Resident Tutors and the Representatives of inmates to discuss day-to-day affairs relating to mess management.
