JK Institute of Engineering provides accommodation to students wishing to reside in the hostels. Each hostel in the institute is an independent unit in respect to his internal administration under the overall supervision of the Council of Wardens and the Hostel Management. The hostel is administered by a Warden appoint by the Director and he/she is assisted by an Asst. Warden in all matters relating to the hostel.
Each hostel also has a Hostel Council which is an advisory body comprising the Warden and the Hostel (as its Chairman), the Asst. Warden and the elected student secretaries as its members. The Hostel Council plans the students’ activities for the year, prepares the budget for sports, recreational and other social activities of the students through the respective student secretaries and is responsible for the running of individual messes with the help of the mess committee.
The Hostel Office is located within the hostel premises. Attached to each office are an Office Manager and an Attender who assist the Warden in matters related to the various activities of the hostel. The office maintains all the files, registers, records, ledgers, account books, supplier’s bills; payment registers etc., pertaining to the hostel residents, mess and the employees. The Hostel Office is open on all weekdays.
Students who want to reside in hostel are required to pay the prescribed hostel seat rent and establishment charges along with a refundable hostel mess caution deposit. These charges are subject to revision from time to time. Allotment of rooms to the residents takes place at the end of each academic year when the final year UG students vacated their rooms after completion of their programmes of study. The rooms vacated by the outgoing students are made available by the Warden for other senior residents in the hostel to change their rooms, on request. The change in rooms is effected in accordance with the policy followed by individual hostel and with the Warden’s approval.
After completion of this process, the number of vacant rooms available in each hostel for allotment to freshers is intimated to the Chairman, Council of Wardens and the Dean of Student. Each room is provided with a cot, a table, a chair, a bookshelf, and a ceiling fan (with regulator). Residents cannot move the furniture or fittings from one room to another. Smoking, consumption of alcoholic drinks and use of narcotics drugs is strictly prohibited.
