Dear Aspiring Students and Parents,
It has been aptly said, “Where we love is home—home that our feet may leave but not our hearts”. Hostel life at Sophia is exactly like this. From being young, home sick children in July in their first year to reluctant and teary eyed graduates who don’t want to go back home is a norm of hostel life here.
Sophia hostel is more than a home away from home. It is a cradle of learning togetherness, loving and appreciating people from all across the country; quarreling and making up; eating and playing; helping and growing.
The hostel of Sophia is a securely cocooned place of love and care where every little need is seen to personally and attended to. The homely environment, the security, mixed with the vision to chisel and transform makes the hostel a place where learning continues even after college is over.
Hostelites have more time to play and a better time to learn. They are the ones who in fact avail the best opportunities at Sophia simply because they stay within the safe premises of the college.
Parents have often complimented the management on seeing the positive change in their wards within a short span of six months after their stay in the hostel. Young minds learn discipline, time management, punctuality, service and team work while staying 24×7 on the campus. It is the hostelites who spread their wings most and create the best memories within and outside class for they lend life to the campus of the college.
Looking forward to another year of living and growing together. God bless you!

The Hostel Warden
