Accommodation plays an important part in building a solid foundation for academic success.
Students benefit from the advantages that come from choosing to study in a city where accommodation of all types, including our University-managed accommodation as well as campus hostel accommodation, is not only accessible but also more affordable than in many Indian cities.
Students unfamiliar with Bhopal are encouraged to consider living in managed student accommodation at campus at least during their first two year of university.
Managed student accommodation provides new students with the opportunity to become better acquainted with the city, settle into their academic program and make new friends, experience the buzz and comfort of secured campus environment without having to worry about the challenges of the private rental market.
Long-term student accommodation
The University assists international students to obtain suitable longer-term housing preferably at campus student residential blocks.
Commercial student accommodation
Commercial student accommodation refers to off-campus student accommodation facilities, run by private management companies not affiliated with Jagran Lakecity University. These facilities offer fully-furnished/partially furnished, self-contained apartments that give students flexibility to live alone or share with others. There are also rooms for couples.
In addition to rent, students may need to budget for additional expenses, including:
- Telephone connection (optional)
- Internet connection (optional).
Places in commercial student accommodation facilities are offered on a 6 or 12-month fixed-term lease. It’s important to note that these facilities are not directly affiliated with Jagran Lakecity University and students are advised to inspect them before committing.
Private rental and share accommodation
Affordable share accommodation can also be found in the private rental market, so the University offers a rental database (jlu.edu.in/accommodation) for our students’ exclusive use. Our enrolled students can access the database from our student
Students are discouraged from sending money from offshore to secure share or rental accommodation prior to inspecting it.
Accommodation for families
Students accompanied by family members will find private rental accommodation in houses or apartments the most suitable accommodation option.
It’s easier for an individual student to initially travel to Bhopal on his or her own to arrange suitable permanent family accommodation. Spouses and children who arrive later can then move straight in.
Arrival reception and campus accommodation
Campus accommodation are available to commencing international students. Eligible students can book an arrival reception service and be met by a University representative at Bhopal Airport, via a domestic or international flight. Students will then be transported to their accommodation.
