SOUTH DELHI
POLYTECHNIC FOR WOMEN

Established in 1963

 

Our Golden Jubilee Year :1963 - 2013

 

Campus Hostel
 


The fulltime Hostel for girls was started 44 years ago, for Outstation Students. This was to provide a safe and securely surrounded residence. It is fully equipped to accommodate 200 students. There are 72 air-cooled rooms and the outstanding feature is that each room has an attached bathroom / toilet. It is fully equipped to accommodate 120 students.

There are spacious and elegant Dining Halls, with wrought-iron furniture. A unique feature is the personalised supervision of the Mess, to provide healthy and well balanced meals. The Hostel also has Visitors' and T.V. Lounge, Telephone & Fax facilities. There are other optional intermittent recreational amenities like the: Internet, Table Tennis and a Multi Gym.
It would be pertinent to add that one set of rooms (on both floors) face east, to the rising sun. The opposite set of rooms, face our leafy green campus.

A hostel may be the best years of College. Where firm friendships may outlast life! However, always a time comes to feel homesick. Specially, if one is ailing or unwell. Hence, we take great care to keep the ambience student-friendly. This is with medical facilities and motherly female wardens.
* Do not forget to read The special mention, in the box below.

SPECIAL MENTION
Due to an acute shortage of accommodation in Delhi, there is a great demand for Hostel Seats. To add to this, Senior Students continue to stay on in the Hostel. Thus, there are limited numbers of seats for new students. Students therefore, once admitted to the Hostel shall not be allowed to become Day Scholars. On doing so, they may not be allowed to pursue their studies.
Parents / Guardians are therefore requested to think twice, before applying for a Hostel Seat. Do not deprive another student of a seat, thoughtlessly.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS
