College marks the coming of age for many students. With college, students learn to take their first tentative steps into adulthood. It's their first brush with living life on their own and it comes with its own set of perks and drawbacks.
The Assam Don Bosco University understands how being away from home can affect the mental and physical wellbeing of students. We understand how overwhelming it can be to leave everything familiar and live in a strange environment surrounded by hundreds of strange people.
We make every effort in providing our students with convenient residential options. All our efforts are directed towards giving our students a home away from home and making their stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.
The Assam Don Bosco University offers separate hostel accommodation for boys and girls. These well furnished hostels are available to students of the Don Bosco College of Engineering and Technology (DBCET) at Azara, Guwahati.
1. Carreno Hall: This boy's hostel is managed and run exclusively for DBCET students by Don Bosco Society, Azara. It is located just behind the college campus and has a separate compund of its own.
2. Ferrando Hall: This hostel for girls is managed and run exclusively for DBCET students by Ferrando Developmental Educational Welfare Society. It is located half a kilometer from the college campus and has a walled compound of its own.
These hostels offer a number of facilities for students such as:
- Well-furnished rooms
- Back-up generator
- Safe drinking water
- Round the clock security
- Television in common room
- Hygienically prepared vegetarian and non-vegetarian food
The two hostels combined can accommodate about 600 students- 350 boys and 250 girls. Since there are only a limited number of hostel seats, we encourage our DBCET students to find paying guest accommodation close to the college. Azara being a well-connected residential suburb, plenty of comfortable housing options are available at reasonable rates.
In addition to hostel accommodation, facilities like uninterrupted water and power supply, high-speed Internet and Intranet services, and a primary health center are provided to raise the quality of residential life on campus.
But above all the facilities and amenities is the all-inclusive spirit of our hostels that encourages students from diverse ethnic, social and financial backgrounds to come together, create a family, and build a home away from home for themselves!
