UG Resident Handbook 2023-24

Students are encouraged to take part in extra-curricular activities and to engage in athletic and cultural activities as participants rather than spectators. Residential living on campus is an important means in achieving the educational purpose and development of - interpersonal skills - breadth of interests and - organizational and leadership abilities The main objective of this handbook is to provide basic information about Undergraduate Halls to all residents with a view to facilitating them in deriving maximum benefit from hall life. The architects and the builders have created for us the physical environment in form of rooms, balconies, corridors and others. It will be you, the residents, through your stay in the hall and participation in activities that will give life and character to the residential environment. Do make good use of the handbook to explore the facilities and services available. At the same time, do ask yourself in what way, through your participation, efforts, creativity, cooperation, acceptance and others, you can contribute to the creation of an environment that will bring educational benefit to all. Halls play a special role in campus life. Being more than a place to sleep and study, halls provide an opportunity for you to make friends with students from other Schools, and to experience a true sense of community. Each student should act responsibly and honorably, and to hold fellow students to the same standard. Introduction
