The hostel designed by the renowned architect Walter George, with the foundation stone laid by Lady Edwina Mountbatten, lends to the college a historical charm and a sense of legacy. It is laid out in an aesthetically designed quadrangle enclosing well kept gardens paced out by a majestic bottle palm lined pathway. The long corridors, the dining hall with a high arched ceiling, and stonework balconies add to its charm. Over the last few years, extensive restoration and refurbishment work has been undertaken to preserve its red brick facade and unique interiors. A new hostel block was added in 2012. It matches in grandeur the old Walter George building. Sitting smugly on the periphery of the old hostel, it integrates well and adds equal beauty and grace to the campus.
