Yashwi | 2020-11-07

Faculty members of the university are very helpful. There is no communication gap. Students can interact directly with them whenever they need their help. They try to focus on practical knowledge more than the theoretical one. Most of them have corporate experience so students can get an idea about the real corporate world from them. The course curriculum is designed according to the requirements of the corporate world, and it is also updated every year.

Sumit | 2020-09-15

The Hostel facility of the Chandigarh University is equipped with many facilities such as Gymnasium, Gym Services and Well- equipped reading rooms. The hostel also offers residential facilities to the visitors. The food that was served to us in the hostel’s mess was delicious and hygienic. The hostel offers a 24*7 internet facility that is accessible from all rooms of the hostel. Apart from this, there is a salon that is open during the weekend also. Most of the facilities are provided inside the campus so you do not need to step outside the campus.
