Hostels are provided on each campus of Christ University. The hostels are separate for girls and boys. The girls' hostel is called Jonas Hall and the boys' hostel has different blocks and names to them. The hostels are good but it has its pros and cons. In the hostel, the first con would be the lack of a canteen. The canteens are all inside the campus but not within the hostel. So, for food, you will have to go and wait in line (which I have heard are huge) and buy food every day.
Some other cons are curfew timings, which are too early for both male and female students, the restrictions such as no inviting friends over, time restriction for group studies, the metric system, and fine payments related to that.Read Full Review
There are two hostel blocks within the campus one for female students; Jonas Hall and one for male; St Kuriakose Elias Hall. It also has Block A, B, C residence hall for boys and several hostels run by Catholic Nuns for girls outside the campus premises. Christ University hostel fees ranges from Rs. 35,000/- to 75,000/- depending upon the room (single/double/triple/four-sharing). Single-sharing rooms cost on the higher end and there is no facility of AC in any of the hostel rooms, simply because the weather in Bangalore is just cozy enough. The hostels provide facilities such as Wi-Fi, group study hall, hot-water facility, gym, and security. Access to the hostel is granted only via biometric system and a security guard is stationed 24x7 (both on the campus gates as well as the hostel gates) to ensure the safety of the residents. The hostel rules are quite strict; students are not allowed to miss any classes and stay in their rooms during college hours without prior notice, regulations are to be followed and penalties are charged otherwise. Since the hostels within campus do not provide food facility, students are provided one hour before the curfew time to go outside and eat, nevertheless, there is a night canteen within the campus along with a bunch of food outlets and stalls.Read Full Review
The residence halls of Christ University were amazing. I never thought I would have this experience, but staying with many students in a hostel has helped me develop as a person. Hostel life made me manage the struggle that one has to face in real life. There are many eateries and cafeterias at the hostel, and the meals were manageable. The residence hall was quite well maintained, but readmission becomes a question mark if not maintained from our end. Therefore, keep your rooms clean and don't smoke or drink in the room as strict action was taken in such cases.Read Full Review
