College Infrastructure

The college was established even before India's Independence. Hence, the infrastructure is bit old. However, the campus is lush green and sustainable, a good escape from the hussle and tussle of busy Mumbai city. The space constraints in Mumbai often restricts the campus to expand. But everything aligns well when the window of your dreams opens into the green saga of eternity.

Good college with less fees and good campus life around camp

College Infrastructure

no standing tables, too small tables, too noise fams, no air purifiers window are openand someone are burning trashes next to class, bad audio,too noisy clasrooms teachers voicce is not heard bad ergonomic,

College Infrastructure

The college has minimalist infrastructure.The staff and office is not very efficient.But basic working is okay.It has a gym,mess with decent food,two canteens,subsidised and cheap according to Mumbai standards
