"Great things are done when men and mountains meet; this is not done by jostling in the street". With the blessings of our Founder President, Bhagwan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, the hostel was named Easwaramma Hostel. As the name suggests, it is the shelter in the hands of the mother of our God. The Easwaramma Hostel was first housed in the BHEL quarters in Piplani 'B' sector. It had the capacity of 25 students only, but with the growth of our college, since its establishment in 1975, the hostel also underwent changes. The hostel building was constructed in two phases, strictly according to UGC norms. Phase I of the hostel building in the campus, was completed and started functioning in July 1998, followed by completion of the second building in 2003. Each building can accommodate 52 students. The hostel is spacious and well furnished with modern amenities.

The accommodation of the first wing is as given below: -

  • Total built-up area: 1161 sq.m. (Ground Floor only)
  • Entrance hall
  • Warden office/Visitors room
  • 13 rooms with accommodation for four students in each room i.e. total 52 students.
  • 1 Sick room to accommodate four students, with attached bathroom and toilet.
  • 2 rooms for Warden and Matron
  • 1 Dining Hall, 1 kitchen and 2 stores
  • 2 Toilet blocks

Each student is provided with one iron cot, one moulded chair, one table and one almirah with steel shutters.

The second hostel building provides the same accommodation except that there is no kitchen and store. Instead, there is a gathering hall with separate provision of toilets attached to the hall on rear side. The dining hall of the first building is common to all inmates as there is a connecting passage between the two hostels.

The day-to-day upkeep of the hostel is ensured by engaging maid-servants for cleaning and a cook for cooking. There is a gardener to look after the gardening and plantation in front of the hostels. Continuous security of the hostels is maintained by employing two watchmen for both day and night. There is an alarm system also, installed in the hostel, to meet any emergency. There is a Gas room and LPG system for cooking.

The prime objective of the institution is to impart value-based education. Therefore, the inmates of the hostel are also expected to follow some rules and disciplines. The day of the students begins at 5 o'clock in the morning with a routine prayer that extend for half an hour. The students are provided breakfast upto 7:30 am. The students of the hostel are expected to attend the college everyday, except in case of sickness. They are provided lunch between 11.30 am and 1.30 pm. The food provided is vegetarian. They also enjoy the evening tea at 5.30 pm that is followed by the evening prayer. Dinner follows at 8:00 pm after which it is the time to study. All lights of the hostel are switched off by 10:30 pm. The students must maintain silence and decent behavior. They must be obedient. The students pay fine or liable to be suspended or dismissed from the hostel in case of misconduct or violation of hostel rules. The students are free to visit their local guardians on Sundays. They can leave the hostel at 8.30a.m. and have to be back by 5 p.m. Night stay is not permitted outside the hostel. The college also provides medical attention to the students. Their health is taken care of by routine checkup from a good medical practitioner.

Visitors are allowed to meet the students on Sundays between 4 and 5:30 pm. The parents/ local guardians can talk to their wards on phone, on Sundays between 12.00 to 4:30 pm. The hostel warden and matron see to it that the students follow the rules of the hostel sincerely. The admission to the hostel is on 'first come, first served' basis. The old hostellers, however, are allotted the seats first. The new students fill the remaining seats. Admission to the hostel is granted only to those, who have local guardians. Married candidates are not admitted to the hostel. The previous years' record of conduct and behavior is taken into consideration while admitting the old students.

The hostel is still in the process of improving the standard and quality. There is still a lot to be done. With His divine, grace and will - everything can be accomplished.
