Most of us start our Under graduation at a far way place from home. Well, I started mine 1700 kms away from home. Lot many of us stay in hostels at our university. I have been in hostels since I started the first year of schooling. 16 years of hostel life has thought me a lot.

Hostel life is a great teacher. As a hosteller you are away from the care of your parents. Hostel teaches you the most important lesson of your life that is SELF RELIANCE. It teaches you to be self-independent


  • Hostel teach us cooperation. It helps us in learning team spirit.
  • Helps us make some good friends outside our classrooms.
  • Teaches us to be self-sufficient.
  • Healthy competition
  • Saves time and travel money.

Hostel gives the leverage of the various facilities available in the university. You can use various facilities such as the library and the hostel gym. If you leave outside most probably you will miss out on these free amenities. Surely you will have to pay more for his facilities if you stay outside.

Travel money is one of the biggest pocket money suckers. Leaving at hostel can help you curb this expense as your classroom would be at a walking distance from hostel.

Hostel life is a life full of experiences and if you have never been to hostel before, you should try the hostel life for at least your first year at college. I assure you that this will be one of the biggest life changing experience for you. You will learn a lot of new things that will help you a lot in the future.
