Student Accommodation in Delhi

Each year thousands of people move from their home towns to bigger cities for job opportunities, education, and even a better lifestyle. A very high percentage of these people would be of young adults shifting for education. From coaching institutes to colleges and universities, bigger cites in India usually hold better opportunities and more options as compared to a smaller city. 

Being the capital of the country, Delhi has always been an attraction for migrations, especially in North India for the tremendous amount of opportunities and options available. The 2001 census shows that 41% of Delhi’s residents 

(Excluding NCR regions of Noida, Gurgaon, Faridabad, and Ghaziabad) were migrants. The highest influx being from Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and Jharkhand. 

With India’s largest and one of the most prestigious universities, The University of Delhi, people are especially attracted to the capital region for education. Along with The Delhi University, Delhi and Delhi NCR are the home for the top public and private universities of the country, like India Institute of Technology (IIT-D), National Institute of Fashion Technology, AMITY University, etc. Giving students a diverse range of courses to choose from for their higher education from technical, to arts, to languages, to science, the capital region has it all. 

Delhi also happens to be an attraction for people looking for coaching for competitive exams, especially for the government sector. Thus making parts of Delhi, hubs for coaching institutes helping students prepare for examinations like SSC, UPSC, entrance exams, etc. 

With such a high influx of students coming into the city every year, Delhi surely becomes the focal point for everything related to the student. 

Even though it is a small city, there are different parts of Delhi dedicated to a different type of student. 

Finding accommodation becomes the number one task for anyone moving into a new city. The needs and expectations of a student, when they come to a place to stay are very different from someone who is moving for any other reason. These expectations also depend upon the part of Delhi they look for accommodation in. It can be to get the first taste of freedom, or to enjoy the ‘lifestyle’ of the city, or to make Delhi a permanent home, or to just study. 

The student accommodation situation in Delhi is similar to most of the metropolitan areas in the country. While there are the usual Mom & Pop PGs and hostels run by individuals, there are also bigger players that offer organized student accommodation in Delhi having a good share in this sector.

While there are a lot of differences in both these types of accommodations, they both provide basic amenities like a furnished room including bed and study table, food and since it is the need of the hour, Wi-Fi. 

The facilities of such ‘home-run’ student hostels would be more or less like a bed and breakfast where you are provided with the necessities. The meals are also optional in most of these student PGs in Delhi. 

the time is changing, and the new students are the gen-Z, as we call it, who were born with the internet in their pocket. Their needs and demands are different and much more than just a ‘bed and breakfast’. They want better-looking spaces, the option to pick out an independent room without any sharing, hygienic food, entertainment and most importantly fast and stable internet connection.

This is when companies like Oxforcaps tap into new needs. They are present in areas typically inhabited by students, and thus the options to choose from becoming larger. These organized student accommodations/branded hostels offer everything a gen-Z student would need and also want. From well furnished, younger-looking rooms and meals with variations to common rooms with games and TV for these students to relax. They even offer fully equipped gyms within these hostels. And of course, high-speed internet. And these organized student living are present in North Campus, Laxmi Nagar, Rohini, and even NCR regions like Noida and Gurugram. 

The factor that distinguishes these organized students living from regular PGs/hostels is that they offer a lot more than vibrant common areas and rooms. They regularly hold events and interactive sessions for its residents, helping them in growing so much more with their community.

In certain situations, students, especially those who have already spent over 2-3 years in Delhi, tend to shift into independent accommodation in Delhi. These are unlike the hostels, where everything is taken care of, the student needs to arrange and tend to every need of the household, including food, bills, housekeeping, etc. Since these independent flats are more expensive and come with a lot of responsibilities, they are less popular among the student community.

You can find accommodation in Delhi at something like Rs 7,000 a month to Rs 25,000 a month depending upon the location and the facilities that are being provided. In the end, it is the individual’s expectations and needs out of the accommodation that is the deciding factor.

So if you a new student and looking for the accommodation near North campus Delhi, you can explorer these branded hotels available in the city who are more than just regular PGs.

Choosing the Right Hostel for your Career

Hostel life is easily one of the most monumental times of a student’s life. You get the taste of freedom for the first time coming out of your homes. What defines these significant years are not just the college but also your hostel. These few years are the building blocks of the career path and shape what your life ahead is going to be like.

When you spend more time in your hostel than your college, it is essential that you choose the right hostel for your career. Let’s look at some points which you should keep in mind while looking for the student housing accommodation.

Distance from College: The first and foremost thing you should check is the distance of the hostel from your college. If you end up opting for a hostel at a greater distance from your college, you might end up spending quite some time traveling and a lot of times you might end up missing your classes altogether.

Internet Connection: Our whole world revolves around the internet these days. Especially as a student, assignments, classes, research and even Netflix, all of these require a good speed internet connection. Gone are the days when you went to cyber cafes to use the internet for projects, so make sure you get desirable internet speed in the accommodation you are choosing.

Food: Your parents are going to be the most concerned about your food. Although it is hard to get your ‘home-cooked’ meal, getting clean hygienic food without any restrictions on the quantity is essential. Most hostels have a predecided menu, have a look at it, tell them about any of your dietary restrictions, you can even try the food there before finalizing

Safety: Moving to a new city, away from your family, the safety in the hostel is going to play a crucial role, especially for girls. Having security guards at all times, trustworthy warden and regulation on the entry of outsiders in the hotels is a must. Clear out all your apprehensions and questions with the hostel staff beforehand.

Common Rooms: Along with your own room, you are going to spend a lot of time in the hostel in common rooms where you can interact with the rest of your hostel mates. It is important that your hostel gives you a space like this where you can relax, unwind and reach out to there other students from different backgrounds and colleges and learn so much.

Connectivity: Even if markets and entertainment areas are not in close proximity to your college campus/hostel, having good connectivity and public transport options are necessary. It makes traveling around the city and going back home alone easier and cheaper.

You might find multiple options within the same proximity of your college campus, you should research well and not rush into any decision. Some of these options might even be cheaper than the rest. But when you are picking out accommodation to stay near your college, where you would be living for the coming year, a cheap hostel is not always a wise choice. In the longer run, you might face a lot of difficulties and lack of facilities in places like these. Checking google ratings and reviews is indispensable because these are genuine responses from students or parents of the students staying there. Explore well before finalizing.

The advantages of sharing your PG or Hostel with a roommate

Leaving the warmth of your home and venturing into college life is a little nerve-wracking. This can be a daunting task, especially because now you will be sharing your room with a stranger and you don’t even know if they will have the same values, tastes, and interests as you. But trust us, roommates in pgs and hostels can be a rite of passage in this quest of shifting. You can hate them or you can love them, but you definitely cannot imagine sustaining without them.

Built-in companionship

You will always have someone there to hang out with or talk to when you come after a long day at work. From trying out the new neighborhood cafe to going on shopping you can do all these fun things together. And if you gel up enough you might even form a deep lifelong relationship with this other person.

Expand your social circle

A lot of times you get to know people through your friends, especially when you’re new to the city. Their friends will eventually become your friends and vice versa for them. This will make settling down, a lot easier, and you will have a great time discovering college life together. On top of this, you will be developing your social skills by virtue of being surrounded by various people from different fields.

Academic assistance

Now you might not both have the same courses at college, but that doesn’t mean that you cannot help each other out. When you’re writing an essay, preparing for a presentation or maybe with proofreading of a paper, you can take your roommate’s help. And if coincidentally some of your subjects overlap then you can do group studies to lighten the exam pressure.

‘The roommate effect’

A roommate can influence your academic success, your health habits, your attitudes, and this is not surprising as you would spend most of your time together. For instance, when you see the other person studying regularly, it automatically motivates you to not waste time and study. You will also learn to make a few compromises for the sake of your companionship, which will in turn contribute to your growth as an individual.

Savior in times of trouble/ dilemma

After all, your roomies are just a phone call away. You can get advice from them when in a fix, share ideas and thoughts. From relationships, career, party outfits, things to buy, your roommates can give a genuine opinion in times of confusion.

Vent it out!

Fought with your family or a close friend? Going through stress due to pending work? Scored badly in an important test? Then vent your heart out in front of your roomie in such times. They will always be there, ready to be all ears and will make you feel comfortable. That’s what roommates are for, bad day or a great day you have someone to share your day with.

Backup Wardrobe

You always have another wardrobe to invade when you’re bored with your own. You can share clothes, footwear, accessories and can experiment with your looks every once in a while. Even if you both are not exactly the same size, you can always figure out ways to fit in!

Wakes you up when you miss your alarm

Some mornings are harder than others, and to have someone to wake you up in case you didn’t hear your alarm is just awesome. This way you won’t miss an important event or a meeting.

Sharing the Costs

Everything is cheaper when you are splitting the bills. You can share the cost of the supplies like toiletries, groceries to even a mosquito repellent. There are other items that can be shared as well, for instance, a Netflix or an Amazon Prime account. This way, pitching in equally will make everything more affordable, and you will have so much more to spend on yourself.

In short the college journey can definitely be an emotional rollercoaster for people, but it definitely is a lot more worthwhile, having someone to share this experience with.

This the reason why the meals provided by us are not only healthy and hygienic (FSSAI certified), but also delicious and wholesome. Also, it is quite evident that millennials are going out of their way to join the gym or other sports centers to rejuvenate after a tiresome day. So to cut their effort our spaces even include state-of-the-art gyms and fitness rooms.

A space you would love to call home

Besides, proper infrastructure and amenities, every child living away from his/her home, seeks the warmth and comfort of a community to mellow down their home-sickness. Thus, we also have common rooms which are always buzzing with the energy of like-minded students forging great friendships.

We believe that it also helps in instilling a sense of security and belonging and goes a long way in ensuring their emotional well-being.

Your safety is our responsibility

Our accommodations come with advanced security features such as biometric access, CCTV & video surveillance, and secured door entry. Especially for the female students, the security is a major concern
