The Pros of Living in Campus Hostels

Most campus students do not prefer living in the hostels, rather they prefer renting out off campus. However, what most of them do not know is that living in campus hostels is much better and affordable.


Some of the advantages of living in hostels include:


Living in a hostel allows you to meet new people who share your interests, thus can be empowering.

If you are shy or introverted for example, having a support system of roommates and neighbours can help you adapt to your new college life more easily, knowing that you have people who have your back.

Campus Activities

Living on campus opens the door to many group activities and clubs.

Off-campus residents are still welcome to participate, but hostel and Greek life events, like Halloween decoration competitions or yoga evenings, are easier to access and better attended by on-campus students.

You are less likely to find yourself alone on campus as there are always people around, and first aid kits and campus police are nearby 24/7 to keep you safe.

In addition, security guards are always there once there is an issue unlike for those off campus who have to go and report in a police station themselves.

Access to Libraries and Gyms

Living on campus allows you to access late-night facilities like the gym and library.

This can benefit those who prefer studying or exercising during quieter hours.


With your meal plan card, you can access various cafeteria options on campus, catering to specific dietary requirements and preferences.

In addition, campus cafeteria which is mostly known as ”mess” is usually cheaper the price of the the food being served off campus.

Flexible Schedules

Living closer to your classes will let you sleep in a bit later and negates the worries of parking and running to class.

Additionally, living in campus hostels gives you time for breakfast and power naps in between classes.
