the college premises comprises six sprawling blocks, furnished with the latest amenities to provide a home away from home to approximately 1000 students. It is one of the most sought after destinations for accommodation across the region for its facilities and secure atmosphere.

Being ahead of times and environmentally conscious, we boast of an eco-friendly green building with a rain harvesting system and vermi-composting pit for garbage disposal. There are designer rooms for quality lifestyle, spacious common rooms for developing personal bonds, Friends Lounge for strengthening friendship. Evening cafeteria for tasty bites in the evening and Ru-ba-roo for the exchange of creative ideas.

Every attempt is undertaken to provide a conducive and congenial ambience of care and mutual co-operation to ensure that the stay of each resident is comfortable, memorable and academically fruitful.
