IIT Kanpur Hostel & Fees Structure

IIT Kanpur has 10 boys' hostels, 2 girls' hostels and one girls' residence tower all together called the 'Halls of Residence. All incoming undergraduate students are allotted in Hall 2, 3, 5 and 10. Do not expect fancy buildings and lavish, luxurious rooms. Rooms are allotted on a twin sharing basis for first and second year students. But in third year every student gets single room in most of halls. In the fourth year all undergraduate students are shifted to either hall 1 or hall 9

Halls of Residence

IIT Kanpur offer the most spacious hostels and largest rooms for the students along with 22 hours of eating facilities available in the campus ranging from some well known food chains to hostel canteens which are well-stocked and offer anyone a let out after a stressful day.Every hostel has a basketball court, few badminton courts, a volleyball court, table tennis room, a television room, a computer room, a reading room for newspaper, magazines, journals, etc, and a hall office to handle hostel affairs. The basketball and volleyball courts in the hostels are floodlit, enabling students to play even at night as the day is more or less jam packed with other activities.

Homly Environment

The halls of residences were built keeping in mind that they were to house the brightest. These weren't just the buildings that were laid brick by brick but, were supposed to be the homes of the students away from their home. They were meant to be witnesses to life long friendships, to be onlookers for ingenious ideas and to be the secure spot for the tired student to rest and re-energise for the upcoming days. All halls from I to XI have been named 'Halls of Residences' precisely with this motive in mind and are not just hostels for students. They provide 24*7 electricity , clean sanitation facilities and good quality food for the nourishment of its beloved residents. Long after one graduates, he/she fondly recollects the memories spent in these rooms which are a treasure for them.
