Godavari Hostel

Godavari Hostel shares its name with the oldest and the largest river in India. This hostel also holds an archaic stature in the historical journey of JNU. It has stood bold and beautiful in its red brick pyramid shape, surviving several years of perseverance, inspiring its residents. This is visible in several instances of successful careers and lives of its residents who lived in this hostel over the years.

 

The current strength of this hostel is 344 with both single and double seated rooms and also accommodating third roommates. It has occupants from grades ranging from bachelors to doctoral candidates. The strength both in physical as well moral sense is visible in the harmonious coexistence of girls from different regions, languages and cultures not only from India but from all over the world.

 

There are four wardens living in each corner of the hostel buildings who look into the administrative issues of hostel. They are  like guardians who stand for the well being of each resident at any hour, be it day or night. The mess of this hostel where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served everyday, is run by a group of cooks and helpers. The cleanliness of the hostel is  efficiently maintained by the sanitation workers despite the challenges it faces being one of the the oldest hostel.

 

The democratic ethos of JNU is carried out even in Godavari hostel through its annual election. The hostel president along with six hostel committee and six mess committee members are elected to represent students’ issues in the hostel. The unique feature of this hostel is an interactive closed online google group ‘godavarionline’ which comprises of all residents and wardens. This is a platform where ideas are exchanged, suggestions made and complaints aired. Through healthy discussions everyone is kept in the loop of information sharing.

 

Its  location, bang opposite  the State Bank of India JNU branch, proximity to the popular ‘Nilgiri Dhaba’ famous for bantapakoras and chai over rounds of intellectual and social discussions have made it the most desirable centrally located hostel. Two boys hostels, namely Periyar and Kaveri are in the vicinity. This hostel is also home to differentially abled students because of the recent   renovation as an accessible building.

 

The Godavari hostel night with a vibrant cultural ethos is highly appreciated and awaited as it showcases the talents of Godavari Girls.
