To start with, whether you are a fresher or a returning student, one most crucial, important decision you have to make during your life is whether to live in the hostel (MALABOR) or off campus (OFF K) . Though, it’s highly prescribed that fresher’s should consider staying in the hostel for full session so as to be in a better position to decides for themselves. The idea is pretty good. But, I strongly believe it’s fully dependent on the student in question.

This post focuses to give fresher’s the enablement to know the advantages and Disadvantages of living either in the hostel or off campus.

“Hostel life gives you the full opportunity of studies. You can constantly in touch with young people of your age and can do alot of other activities except from studying. You can make friends with fellow hostel mate (malabite/malabreses) who have diverse taste attitude which can help you out in studying well. One may choose his/her friend according to individual like and Interest and can spend quality time even after lectures or school hours. Mutual discussion of their favorite film artists, story telling, add charm to hostel life. Good arrangements of games and sports including eating, dancing, singing,yabbing competition, and day to day  merry making, makes the hostel life a thing of envy for all. Apart from fun leisure activities, malabite and malabress (hosteler) have a unique unity and are always ready to help one another whenever need.”

It’s also require a student to budget more money because you pay for almost anything you utilize.such as: water, light, kerosene,gas etc
