Hostels of the college students
Students' Home (Hostel-Brahmananda Bhavana):
There are at present three hostels under the supervision of the college. These are called Students' Homes because attempts are made to create a homely atmosphere there. Although fellow-feeling, goodwill and understanding form the basis of life at such homes, strict discipline is maintained simultaneously. Students admitted to the college are accommodated in any one of the homes at the discretion of the authorities. This being an entirely residential institution, the students' homes are an integral part of the college and the rules, regulations etc. obtaining there are binding on all students of the college.
Students' Home (Hostel-Gouranga Bhavana):
The college being fully residential, students have to stay at hostels where the ideal of meaningful corporate life based on love, fellow-feeling and understanding prevails. At these hostels, monks play a crucial role in maintaining a bracing atmosphere of harmony and seeing to it that students under their charge are bound and welded into togetherness by a love that transcends all barriers of caste and creed.
