How is Hostel Life in VIT Chennai?

I had an induction program of 10 days, it was so exhausting sitting under a tent. Outing from campus is restricted for freshers. Take permission from the proctor or warden. They both find a way of declining it in my every 1 attempt


Now as the outing is restricted here, you have to buy stuff from V-mart in colleges that aren’t Vishal Mega mart but it is VIT general store. Everything is out of stock from pens, and notebooks to soap, etc. They don't have any good restaurants on campus too.


Now come g to hostel Facilities, VIT has the best hostels and messy food is up to the market It has some flaws like in my AC hostel for which I paid 1,87000 AC only works from 06:00PM TO 06:00AM why no u limit AC on that much of a high price.


Now one more fall is hostel WIFI as you know it is restricted to only 20 GB. It would have been fine if VIT had a good network of telecom companies. 

I live in the VIT hostel and have recharged my 4 SIMs namely, Idea, Vodafone, Airtel, and JIO none of which work properly. The call drop rate is also higher. So how come a CSE student can subscribe to 20 GBs.
