Life at JGU

Student Housing

The University Hall of Residence for students consists of several blocks of building designed by a French architect. There are corridors, open spaces and common rooms within each block. There are separate blocks for male and female students. The accommodation for students in these blocks follows international norms and the rooms are aesthetically furnished. Hygiene is an important consideration in these Halls.

In addition, the campus provides recreational facilities including a gymnasium and other indoor and outdoor games. The surroundings are fully landscaped with lawns, bushes and trees.


The University has secured the services of Sodexo for catering and housekeeping facilities; providing essential meals (breakfast, lunch, evening snacks and dinner) open to students, faculty and staff. Sodexo is a French multi-national concern, and one of the largest food services and facilities management companies in the world.  

A state-of-the-art kitchen with the best equipment ensures that the wide array of the cuisines can be prepared well. The food is served under hygienic conditions. The food services are made available in the dining hall of the University on self-services basis. Only vegetarian meals are served with the exception of eggs in certain meals.
