The first cutoff admissions in DU will end today, but hostel students face a crisis. However, the situation is not clear in all the colleges to give hostels to the students. Some colleges have refused to give hostels this time, while some have decided to give. Many colleges say that we are waiting for DU guidelines.
It is to be known that 20 colleges of DU have hostel facilities. Dr. Anju Srivastava, Principal of Hindu College, says that they are not giving hostels to students this time due to the situation arising out of COVID-19. Although the principal of Ramjas College, Dr. Manoj Khanna says that they have not taken any decision in this regard, we are waiting for the guidelines.
The principal of DU’s Miranda House, Dr. Bijayalakshmi Nanda said that they will enroll in hostels as per the earlier rules, but they will not give admission yet. They are waiting for DU guidelines for this. Although Principal of SGTB Khalsa College, Dr. Jaswinder Singh says that they will give hostels, students who need can apply.
The principal of Maharaja Agrasen College of DU, Dr. Sanjeev Tiwari says that the college is not open yet. This will be considered after the session begins. Till then DU can also give directions in this regard. The decision will be taken as per instructions.

What is the policy of private hostels or lodge owners?
Rajpal Singh, who runs his lodge near DU’s North Campus, says that students are asking for information for hostels or lodges. Some people are also staying. Earlier many girls were living in one room so that their rent would come down. Now we are giving one room to only one student. But the fare is being taken from them as sharing because social distancing has been taken care of. We look forward to the guidelines.
