    College Infrastructure

    Infrastructure is good over all. Every department has got equipments like Wi-Fi, cold, normal and hot drinking Water, good benches and whiteboards. New students get new hostel with lift, WiFi and sea-facing rooms (only the 5th floor). Even, the campus is airy and there's no such pollution. The sky is so vivid that one can see all the constellations. Food is not very tasty, basic mess food. But most students cook using induction, as and when required. The campus beach is very close.

    A autiful campus which gave me best & worst life experiences

    College Infrastructure

    Being a science student, the facility which i would look for is the necessary laboratory and instrumentation facilities. Recently i have found that few instruments and machine which are very much beneficial for my project was under repair. Library is commendable with proper wifi and a good environment for studying. Though wifi in hostels show less strength at times, the living space is quite clean with the akkas coming regularly to clean. The food is hygienic except for the old menu we follow.
