JD Women’s College has received more than 1,000 applications from students for 60 seats in the institute hostel that would be inaugurated in December.
“We have received 1,000 applications against 60 seats. The response is overwhelming. We are planning to allot hostel seats according to merit,” said Rekha Mishra, a teacher with the Hindi department of the college.
The upcoming hostel would be the first in JD Women’s College.
At present, the institution under Magadh University does not have any accommodation facility. Students, who come from far-off places, are forced to stay in private hostels.
According to sources, the new hostel will have a gymnasium, indoor and outdoor games facility and high-level security.
Mishra said the students getting accommodation in the hostel would be able to avail of the gymnasium facility. “Besides, they will also be able to enjoy indoor and outdoor games,” she added.
The college students staying in private hostels are anxiously waiting for the inauguration of institute facility.
“I live in a private hostel on Nala Road. It takes me around 45 minutes to reach college. During traffic jams, it takes even longer. I am looking forward to the hostel facility. I have applied for a seat and keeping my fingers crossed,” said Sonali Singh, an Intermediate student.
Sources said the last examination results would be taken into consideration while allotting seats. In case of Sonali, her matriculation results would decide her fate.
