Carmel Hostel was opened in 1964. Its aim is to give the students an all round formation. For this reason, we encourage and foster excellence not only in the academic field but also in their spiritual and and social development. The hostel offers opportunities for community and private prayer, for personal guidance and for team work which cuts across the artificial barriers of caste , creed and class.
