It is the government policy that admissions into public universities should not pegged on available accommodation space. Of about 7000 students, the University can barely accommodate 152 ladies and 246 men, making the total available spaces to be 398. The Directorate of Students' Welfare (DSW) is tasked with the allocation process. Room allocation for the University Hostels is exclusively reserved for the first year KUCCPS (previously known as JAB) students to give them a soft landing. They are required to move out of the Hostels upon completion of the first year.
Allocation is based on first come first served basis while students with special conditions such as medical, disability, physical challenges etc. are also considered.
