DU Admissions 2019 : 10% Increase In Seats But DU Doesn’t Have Enough Hostel Space For Students

Delhi University has students studying not just from Delhi but from across India and many students are from outside India as well. There are about 1.8 Lakh students studying in the University but less than a quarter of them are accommodated in the hostels provided by the university.

With Delhi University increasing the student intake by 10% for the current academic session after the implementation of EWS quota.There are no plans to increase the accommodation options.

“This will depend on the Centre releasing funds, which has not happened so far. Hopefully, by next year, some funds will have been received. But this year will be a stretch across the board,” Dean Students Welfare, Rajeev Gupta was quoted as saying.

“Hostel accommodation is anyway something that we have not been able to provide — only some 2-3% of admissions happen to hostels. The 54% student expansion, which was introduced with OBC reservation, has also not been accommodated. Only SC, ST and PWD students have been provided accommodation on a priority basis. As a result, we will not be able to prioritise the new group immediately,”. he further added.
