Hostels

Students who do not live with their parents, near relatives or guardians are expected to live in hostels approved by the College. There are two separate hostels for boys and girls run by the College and their capacity has been increased with the addition of new buildings. Vegetarian and non-vegetarian food is available. These hostels are governed by the rules and regulations framed by the Management.

St. Aloysius College Hostels are centres of living, learning and integral growth for the PU, Degree and PG students studying at our Institutions. Apart from providing facilities for board and lodge for college students, these Hostels strive to create a healthy and conducive atmosphere for study, prayer and healthy interaction among the inmates. They are certainly not places for pure relaxation, fun and enjoyment. In that sense they are not to be treated as homes, because generally, in a home environment, a certain sense of casualness, informality, dispersed atmosphere, elastic timetable, regular adjustments prevail along with an attitude that conveys, ‘it’s alright’ in most situations. All the conveniences provided at home cannot be replicated at our Hostels, neither do the hostels promote ‘familial relationships’ between the Staff and the students. Those who seek admission to this hostel are urged not to expect a casual family atmosphere in the Hostel and are required to get accustomed to a much more ordered life.

Order and discipline are essential ingredients of common life at these Hostels and they create an atmosphere for effective learning. It is to enhance the quality of living and learning and to aim at excellence that the following rules are framed. They are liable to be revised periodically and made more relevant to the inmates.

Spiritual growth: Our hostels place great importance on the value of spiritual formation of our students. All the Catholic students have Holy Mass thrice a week and Rosary prayers every evening. They are also encouraged to attend daily Eucharist in our college chapel.

We are thankful to all the Jesuit Fathers for their involvement in and concern for the spiritual well being of the hostellers. We thank them for being available to offer Mass and for their support and inspiration. Inter-religious prayer service for all the students practicing different faiths is also held on every Thursday.

Sports: The hostel offers a range of recreational and sports facilities to all our students. Badminton, Basketball, volley ball, throw ball, table tennis and other indoor games facilities are provided to the students. We are grateful to the Management for providing space and facilities of the Primary School for this purpose.

Earnest attempts have been made to accommodate deserving students. A large number of students have been given concessions in keeping with our option for the marginalized.

St. Aloysius College Gents Hostel is a microcosm. Students of the Hostel belong to various religions, cultures, languages and backgrounds. This diversity builds common life in the Hostel and promotes invaluable ‘unity in diversity’. Such a rich atmosphere enriches lives of the students and trains them to be aware of international and national diversity, to be open to others and thus transforming them into ‘citizens of the world.’

Many opportunities are provided to all the students to develop a healthy personality. Students in the Hostel are taught not only to be mature, independent, personalities with self-respect and self-esteem, but also to respect others’ dignity, individuality and unique identity.

The Hostel life encourages students to move away from a selfish, self-centered, narcissistic, close-minded world-view to a selfless, other-centered, broad and open minded world-view. They learn to respect and accept the other completely, joyfully and without any reservations. The students of the Hostel are given many opportunities, including the opportunity to participate in the running of the Hostel. This enables them to develop into a mature community of responsible persons, who show a keen interest in inculcating in themselves values of love, peace, justice and harmony.

History of Gents’ Hostel

In 1905, a railway line was established from Calicut to Mangalore and in the same year the Nethravathi Bridge was built. This helped many students from Kerala to seek admission in St Aloysius College. The first batch of Hostelites in 1907 numbered 47. In 1918, the number grew to 142 students. In 1961, there were 233 students and in 2010there were 460 students in the Hostel. The Hostel has celebrated its centenary in 2007.

In 1914, the Sacred Heart block (S block) was built to cater to these students. Today the Hostel has many blocks, the biggest amongst them being the Loyola Block (150 students), followed by Gonzaga block (94 students), Sacred Heart block (88 students), Aloysius Block (76 students), Arrupe Block (42 students) and Xavier block, with a separate Staff block as well. The Hostel provides accommodation for PUC, Undergraduate and Post-Graduate students, studying at St Aloysius College.
