NIT Warangal - What to pack for Hostel



Yipee! Glorious NITW life beacons..

but hey!? WHAT SHOULD I PACK FOR HOSTEL??
Don’t worry … Orpita will help you out ..Here are the bare essentials :

1)Mattress for the metal cot that will be provided.
In the hostel room will be provided a metal cot, a table and a cupboard(with or without a door), one tubelight, 4 switchboards, 2 fans. The windows have a mesh or screen to keep out the mosquitoes.
Vendors selling Mattresses at nominal rates (Rs 200-300 – depending on how well you bargain)sit outside the Hostel Office from the Registration days till 1st day of college.Also you’ll find Airtel, Vodafone etc. people selling SIM cards, plans etc.

2)Bucket and MugFor the first year girls Last Year, 4 bathrooms , 3 toilets and 2 basins had to be shared between 32 girls. This year , life will be a lot more comfortable for the guys, since the New Mega Hostels are ready to be ocupied! The New Girls Hostels are under construction and will be ready by next year…

3)Your Clothes ofcourse and hardy shoes- Girls – remember to pack in all your Salwar Kameezes, get some stitched if you don’t have any..heed my advice,you’ll be thankful later! – Guys – Take out those formal striped shirts and trousers, no not the jeans , the cloth material stuff.

4)The usual toiletries – soap, shampoo, clothes washing soap(get the cheap varieties-the washing ladies are not all that sincere), maybe Prill Dishwash liquid, Odomos – Is Absolutely Necessary if you are sensitive to mosquitoes.There are several washing ladies in the girls hostel. They charge Rs.60/month to wash your clothes everyday. You need to put your dirty laundry and soap/detergent in your bucket(you need to write your name on the bucket) and place it outside your door before locking up your room for college. The washing lady you Recruit(..lol..eng’neerin coll terminology) will wash your clothes and put in to dry on the clothesline in fronth of your room.
The Ironing Man takes in youer clothes once every 3 days.

5)You might want to get a plate, glass , bowl.The Messes provide 3 meals a day + tea in the evenings. Saturday night no dinner is served, its called “Dry Mess”. And college students get pretty hungry.. You’l need your utensils to serve the very famous Maggi, we people seem to survive on .

IMPT – There are several supermarkets and shops at walking distance from the campus to buy all these Bare Essentials.. I would advise you to buy whatever you can from Warangal. Get just the most essential items from home.. cause even then, I’m predicting, your suitcases’ll be pretty heavy .
Also, keep in mind, at the end of the year, you need to vacate your rooms. Yea! thats right..you have to carry your stuff home or leave it in trunks in the “cloak room”..
