In order to mitigate the hardship faced by students while running from ‘pillar to post’ for hostel admissions, the Delhi University (DU) will now provide all the information regarding hostels on its admission portal for the upcoming academic session (2017-18).
The DU’s endeavor to make a single window for all hostel related information will definately prove to be helpful for students thinking of applying for the hostels.
“Now the students can have access to all the information at one place contrary to earlier when students have to run from one hostel to another and pillar to post for getting the information related to the hostels,” said a university official.
For this purpose the websites of all the hostels maintained by the university would now be integrated and linked with the admission portal of DU, so that students can easily have an access to all information about all the hostels by just clicking at the link- ‘hostel’-on the admission window.
All the relevant information about DU hostels like map, its distance from the colleges, faculties covered by the hostel,facilities avaliable, fees structure, contact details, admission details, etc. would now be made available at one place and would be just a click away.
DU maintains about 18 hostels with 7 female hostels among them.
Hostels maintained by University are mostly for PG and research students while hostels maintained by colleges are mainly for the Undergraduate students.
Students will have to apply for hostels on their individual website
