OP Jindal University -Accommodations Indeed, hostel life is the most exuberant time in any student's life and undeniably an enduring experience amongst the treasured moments.
OP Jindal University (OPJU) was set up to bring high-quality education to its students with a world-class curriculum, the latest teaching methodology and committed faculty members.
The multidisciplinary university aims to develop young professionals and future leaders who will power growth and development in the state and make a mark globally.
At the core of the university's philosophy and approach lies the belief that students learn best when exposed to real world situations and when nurtured through enriching interactions with practitioners and professors. We at OPJU believe that every student has innate potential that can unlock through quality teaching and mentorship. With time students develop the virtues of punctuality, regularity and discipline and build self-confidence. The essential element of hostel life is the probability of making new friends. Students from different families with different habits stay together under one roof, which empowers the ability to develop a good understanding of different natures and minds.
OPJU University, over the past fourteen years, has established a culture of a safe and secure environment at its hostels, governed by an administrative body that includes the warden, the assistant warden, caretakers, etc. whose residences are located at a walkable distance from the three hostels. Hall of Residence -1, Hall of Residence-2 and Hall of Residence-3 offers a variety of accommodation options from Single, Two, and Three having options like AC / Non AC rooms. The students have the choice to select as per their suitability. The plethora of committees and subcommittees, disciplinary policies help to reinforce the safe and healthy environment of each hostel campus.
