The primary objective of establishing hostels for boys and girls of Sir C.R.Reddy College of Engineering is to provide students a Home away from their Home. The hostels are built in an environment that certainly provides self-confidence and instills discipline in the minds of students. They can feel at ease and put in their best in academics. The hostel ambience provides scope for developing harmonious communal living and enables them to share the joys of fellowship and professional fraternity. Self-help, co-operation and spirit of common good are some of the virtues anticipated from the inmates of the hostel. The senior inmates of the hostel are expected to be more responsible and set good examples for junior students. Everyone should uphold the dignity and self-respect of every other student in the hostel. Inmates are expected to utilize the best infrastructure facilities and uphold the reputation of the hostel as well as the institute.


Hostel Administration:

There are two hostels, one for boy students and the other for girl students, exist in the college campus. Boys hostel accommodates about 800 students and Girls hostel accommodates about 480 students. The hostel is administered by a committee, which consists of Principal as Chief Warden, a Senior Professor as Warden and other teaching faculty as Resident Warden. The inmates belonging to each hostel select among themselves Mess Secretary, Mess Treasurer and other members to assist administration of the hostel. The student body and the administration work together in coordinating the hostel activities. Warden and Resident Warden look after the day-to-day administration of the hostel concerned. The student representatives are expected to cooperate with office bearers to ensure smooth running of the hostel. The student body holds duties for one academic year.

The mess is run on a dividing system and the members of the mess committee decide the weekly menu in consultations with other members. The items required for the menu are procured from the suppliers and the stocks are entered in a book. The items delivered to the cooking staff are weighed and the representatives update the balance in the stock book.
