New Hostel

The NEW HOSTEL is a closely-knit unit of St.Joseph's family. It was founded in 1939 and is conducted by the Fathers of the Society of Jesus. It is a home away from home, a temple of learning and a family that has a long living tradition.

The motto of the New Hostel is "COR UNUM" (One Heart). The hostel has 4 Blocks with 310 rooms (single, double and triple beds) and can accommodate 830 students. The hostel provides 2 messes and there are 2 dining halls with modern kitchen facilities. Visitors' Room, Reading Room, Music Room, Television Room, Prayer Hall, Meeting Hall, Play Ground (1 Basket Ball Court, 2 Volley Ball Courts, 3 Tennikoit courts) and public address system are the other facilities provided in this hostel.



Students are admitted to the New Hostel only after they secure admission to the College and after a personal interview with the Director. The parent of the applicant is required to be present at the time of the interview. Membership of the Hostel is for only one year. Senior students wishing to be readmitted will apply again in the prescribed form. Those who have not shown sufficient improvement in their studies and are failing consistently in the examinations may be denied renewal of membership in the hostel.


Cleanliness is next to Godliness. Each one is responsible for the cleanliness of the room as well as of his immediate surroundings. This goes a long way in making the hostel more healthy and an enjoyable place to live in. Pasting pictures and papers on the walls, doors or windows of the living room and driving nails on the walls are strictly forbidden. Common furniture and property should be responsibly used. Hence damage of any kind to furniture and other common articles should be brought immediately to the notice of the Director or Asst. Director who may deal with the situation at his discretion.
