THE HALLS OF RESIDENCE
The National Law School campus with all its 500 odd students and the faculty residing in the same campus is a like a miniature India. With such interaction comes the greater need to adjust and share opinions, and to build an outlook necessary to become budding lawyers. Residing on campus enables students to widen their horizon and acquire important inter-personal skills.
There are three Halls of Residence for men known by the names Ganga, Cauvery and Himalaya and three Halls of Residence for women known as Nilgiris, Annexe and Mess Block. In addition there are two P.G. Women’s Hostels. Students of the first year are generally provided separate accommodation. While the first year students are allotted dormitories, from the second year onwards, they have the option of triple seater rooms, which are T-shaped and, once a curtain is drawn across the entrance, each becomes a private cubicle. Women students have a choice of twin seaters, in addition to the triple seater rooms. There are also a few single rooms available in both hostels. These are usually given to students in the final year.
Students are each provided with a cot, cupboard, chair and desk. They are advised to bring their own mattresses, curtains and bed-linen. Hostels have 24-hour running hot water facility. Laundry facilities are also made available on campus. As Bangalore experiences cold weather during November- January, students are advised to bring blankets and warm clothing.
Ragging in any form in the Hostel / Institution is illegal and is banned.
Smoking and consumption of alcohol are prohibited on Campus. Use of Drugs is punishable and is banned.
The Halls of Residence have a Common-Room each, equipped with cable television, facilities for indoor games and a small in-house library. To ensure uninterrupted power supply, the Halls of Residence have their own generators. Tea/Coffee vending machines, facilities of the PCO and 24 hours security are some of the other features which ensure that students enjoy basic amenities and security so that they can focus on their studies.
The Halls of Residence have strict rules of administration. The Rules and Regulations are notified at the beginning of each academic year. Committees are constituted to ensure compliance with these Rules. Students are expected to adhere to the Rules and Regulations, failing which they will be subject to disciplinary action. Students must also identify a local guardian who can be contacted in any emergency.
All the day-to-day activities are managed by the students themselves through three Committees - the Disciplinary Committee, the Mess Committee and the General Welfare Committee which functions under the supervision and control of the Collegium of Wardens. At the beginning of every academic year, students are selected to be on these committees. This enables students to gain valuable organisational skills. The students-managed kitchen serves vegetarian food on all days and non-vegetarian food on designated days.
The residents are not permitted to leave campus without permission and are not allowed to stay outside their Halls of Residence, after specified hours. Keeping four/two wheelers is discouraged.
The University reserves the right to refuse admission into the Halls of Residence to students who refuse to abide by the Rules and Regulations. Parents are advised to keep constantly in touch with the Institution / Authorities of the Halls of Residence regarding performance of their wards.
The Wardens stay on campus and the students are free to approach any of the Wardens regarding any problem, inconvenience, ill health etc.
