Hostel

Sophia College (autonomous) offers efficient, well-managed and clean hostel accommodation to about a hundred and five out-of-town students. The hostel is located on the first floor of the main building and the topmost floor of the rear extension. It is truly a home away from home, where each student receives personal attention and is encouraged not only to develop her academic skills but also to become a well-balanced and caring person. Participation in extra-curricular activities is expected, so that students realize that the learning process goes beyond academic study.

The aim of the hostel is to create an enlightened educational atmosphere, to encourage stable emotional growth in keeping with the goals and mission of the college. The hostel gives students an opportunity to meet peers from other regions and cultures.

The hostel is an integral part of the Sophia College (autonomous). It has a vibrant community, of over one hundred full-time students, from all parts of India and sometimes even abroad.

Admission to the hostel is competitive and there are particularly high expectations from resident students – especially with regard to attendance, academic performance and participation in the life of the college as a whole.

Continuation in the hostel is based on the appraisal of each resident on a yearly basis. Selection to the hostel is based on a personal interview of the prospective resident along with her parents/guardians.
