Hostel Accommodation: The number of seats available for residence of students in various Hostels maintained by the University is extremely limited and it would therefore be necessary to regulate admission to hostels to only such persons who are in real need of such accommodation and coming from outside Bangalore City. No student whose parents are residing in metropolitan area of the Bangalore City will be given accommodation in the students' hostels except in case of physically handicapped and similar extraordinary cases. Hostel facility to the PG Students is limited to 2 years only. Admission to student hostels is regulated in accordance with Ordinances read with section 42 of KSU Act 2000. Any violation or contravention of the Ordinances shall be punishable in accordance with procedure provided in ordinance read with Section 77 of the KSUAct. 2000.
The application for admission to hostel will be issued in the office of the Director of Student's Welfare, JnanaBharathi Campus, Bangalore University.
Hostels are managed by Bangalore University through the Director of Students' Welfare and the Hostel Management Council. Only bonafide students of the institute on rolls are eligible to get accommodation in the hostel, which will be provided to student only on payment of the hostel room rent and other fees as prescribed by the University from time to time.
First year students have to pay the room rent, hostel deposits, hostel and mess admission fee etc., (as detailed in the application form and prospects of the hostel). Boarding in mess is compulsory for all hostel applicants admitted. Boarders should vacate their rooms and leave the hostel soon after their semester examination are over during the month of January and July of respective year or as revised by the University from time to time. The hostel facilities for SC/ST and Cat-I students are provided only for the said period of sanction of scholarships by the Government of Karnataka.
