Tapti Hostel

Tapti turned into a twenty-year-old hostel in 2016, situated in Paschimabad-I, JNU. The Kendriya Vidyalaya and the 24/7 food court are the two landmarks with hostels like Sabarmati and Mahi- Mandavi in close proximity. The hostel was built in 1997 and since then it had been operating exclusively for girls until the new academic year 1999-2000, when it turned into a co-resident with a separate wing for girls and boys students. There are 228 rooms in two wings, 100 for girls wing and 121 for boys wing. Both the wings have double occupancy accommodating 442 students from various courses.

 

There is a separate gymnasium with the latest machines for work out, a well-equipped common room cum TV room, and filtered and cold water dispensers at each wing. Other common facilities for both the wings’ residents are visitors’ room, mess hall, recreation room and parking space. The hostel has a basketball court, a volleyball court and a badminton court attached to the hostel’s beautiful garden and the 24/7food court.

 

Hostel mess serves meals four times a day: breakfast, lunch, snacks with tea and dinner. Also there is the facility of room service in case of any emergency. The administrative work and supervision is handled by two mess managers with the hostel mess committee which is the student body comprising of six mess secretaries. The mess dining hall is also used for organizing lectures and conducting public meetings which ensures scholastic culture. The mess menu tries to address the food habits of all the residents but occasionally changes are introduced through mess committee. New dishes are tried out so that the best food can be made available to the students. Election is observed as a ritual in a democracy so is the hostel’s election. Every year around the beginning of the new academic year and it is presided over by the four Wardens of the hostel. The Hostel President, the Hostel Committee and the Mess Committee with six members each are elected which promise to preserve democratic ambience and thus, reinforce smooth functioning of the hostel.
