The main concern of this hostel is character formation, along with intellectual excellence. All the inmates must co-operate with the Director and Assistant Director to achieve these aims.

The motto of Bellarmine Hostel is "TOWARDS ALL EXCELLENCE". This hostel is meant for students of the Self Financing Courses and M.Phil. scholars. There are 65 rooms (Single and double beds) that can accommodate 150 students. The boarding facility for the students is provided at the Sacred Heart Hostel. A Reading room, a Television cum Music room, a volleyball court are the other facilities provided in the hostel.



Students are admitted into Bellarmine Hostel only after they are admitted into one of the courses in the College, and after a personal interview with the Director. The parent must accompany the applicant. Membership of the hostel is for one year only. Senior students wishing to be readmitted must apply again in the prescribed form. Those students who have not behaved well or shown seriousness in studies may not be admitted again.

Meals are taken at Sacred Heart Hostel. At the time of admission a student has to pay Rs.1300/- to the Director of the Sacred Heart Hostel. Of this amount Rs.900/- will be refunded at the end of the year.
Breakfast : 7.00 am. to 8.00 am.
Lunch: 1.00 pm. to 2.00 pm.
Supper: 7.00 pm. to 8.00 pm.

Study and Discipline

Responsibility and self-discipline are necessary for success in life. Common living is impossible without these. To maintain order and harmony, the following guidelines are to be followed by all.

All should cooperate to maintain an atmosphere conducive to study; they should take every care not to disturb anyone, especially at times of study and sleep.

Since all are Post-Graduate students, serious study habits are expected from them.

Strict silence is to be observed from 9.00 pm. to 7.00 am. on all days. This silence time begins with prayer/song, played over the Public Address System. All the students are to stand outside their rooms for this prayer.

Absence from the Hostel after 9.00. pm. without the Director's permission is a serious fault. Those who wish to attend courses outside SJC campus will do so after getting written permission from the Director. An atmosphere of silence is to be maintained in the hostel permises in the forenoon hours, so that serious study which is expected of post-graduate students is possible for all.

Day scholars are not to permitted to enter the hostel premises. Smoking in the hostel/College campus is strictly forbidden.

Leave or Absence

All are expected to attend classes regularly and punctually. Prior permission of the Director is needed to be absent from classes. If anyone is absent from classes for more than 10 days without prior permission he will be sent away from the hostel. Students going home must fill in the details in the hostel leave form.

Newspapers and Magazines are available in the Reading Room.
