A home away from home, the hostels at VIT is more than four walls and a roof. They have been designed to provide a comfortable, safe, inclusive and secure living even as they provide opportunities to form lasting friendships and ease the transition from home to college. Residential staff is always available to support the students from different backgrounds to promote community. Living on campus provides students with opportunities to:

  • * Connect with a diverse population of people
  • * Develop stronger interpersonal and communication skills
  • * Engage in campus leadership, organizations and activities
  • * Establish relationships with faculty and staff members

Hostel review committee meetings are conducted once in 15 days by the hostel administrators to address students’ queries and requirements, and to keep them updated on upgradation of services and events. Students are also given the privilege to give suggestions to improve the hostel facilities.


A spacious Visitors' Lounge has recently been added for the benefit of visiting parents/guardians, supplementing the residential guest house facilities available. The spotlessly maintained and spacious vegetarian and non-vegetarian dining halls in the hostels serve wholesome, nutritious food with the help of a unique steam cooking facility. Foreign students can also choose from a limited list of special food items. A Chinese mess is functioning separately.

For those who want to try out different cuisines, a variety of hygienic food facilities are available on campus. A popular eating spot is the 600 square meters Food Court, that serves delicious non-vegetarian and vegetarian food at reasonable prices. Fast food outlets are also attached to both the Men's and Women's Hostels.
