Boys Hostel Activities
Kurukshetra University was established in 1956 as a unitary teaching and residential University. In 1974 it became a residential-cum-affiliating University when all colleges in Haryana were affiliated to this University. The Campus sprawls over 473 acres of land against an idyllic background of rural charm and is situated at a distance of a mile and a half from Thanesar City. With vast open space around and with its modern buildings/hostels, the campus is a particularly healthy place conducive to quiet and concentrated academic work. The site on the western bank of the Sacred Brahmsarovar of Kurukshetra was chosen by the sponsors of the University for its historical and spiritual significance.
All the University hostels are under the overall supervision of the Chief Wardens separately, Chief Warden (Boys) & Chief Warden (Girls). They are assisted by the team of Deputy Chief Warden/Wardens. Hostellers of the University Teaching Departments/Institutes on the campus are admitted in the twelve Boys and thirteen Girls hostels.
The Boy’s Hostels are situated in the vicinity of the main market, Post-Office and State Bank of India on the University Campus. The Girl’s Hostels are ideally located in another sector of the University Campus. The location of these hostels is such that the Girls hostellers feel perfectly secure and safe there. The Girl’s hostels form a complex of buildings which include the residences of the lady Wardens and this whole complex is surrounded by a high boundary wall having only main entrance gate. The peaceful and free environment serves as a fillip to make them realize that education is a delightful experience. In the Girl’s hostel compound a common canteen has been provided. Attached to this, is a guest house for the use of bonafide guests of resident hostellers, Tailoring shop, Photocopier shops, General Store & Dhobi shop etc. have also been provided for the convenience of the girl residents.
Every hostel is equipped with a water purifier to provide safe drinking water to the residents. With a view to improving the quality of food and also to train the residents to inculcate a sense of discipline, duty and responsibility, mess arrangements in most of the University hostels are on co-operative basis. As such the resident (hostellers) participates in the management of the
co-operative mess through the Mess Committees. Purchases for hostel mess are made on competitive rates and on quality basis from the open market by the respective mess committees in accordance with established procedure. The Wardens keep a check on the quality of meals served in the hostels and also check sanitation arrangements and general up-keep of the hostels.
Common room facilities exist in all hostels where newspapers and periodicals are provided for hostellers. Arrangements for various indoor games, music and television exist in each hostel common room for recreation of the residents. To encourage sports and cultural activities among the residents, intra-hostel games like, badminton, table-tennis and other indoor games are arranged. Debates on current topics and other Cultural Programmes are also held in each hostel. Two Computer Labs with Internet facility is also available in the Girls’ Hostels Complex.
