The college is situated in a peaceful and high profile area of Chanakya Puri and is two minute drive away from Satya Niketan , the hub of South Campus .From QDs to BIG YELLOW DOOR,all are 10 bucks (of course you have to share) auto ride away.This place has a huge varieties of cafe`s that will not scare your wallet away .

My Experience

From the first day to now,Maitreyi has been an Alma meter worth bragging about.Having a passion for performing arts,the societies have provided a big platform to develop my skills.Even though coming from a convent co-ed school,I was dreaded to attend an all girls college,but the activities,opportunities and ambience makes it worth having no cute guys around.And the girls here unlike Jon Snow literally know everything.
