The Bagayam campus has the Women’s and Men’s Hostels for MBBS students, the Fitch Hostel for Allied Health women students, the Dorothy Joske Hostel for Allied Health men students, and the Modale International Hostel for elective / visitor-observer students from overseas.
The activities, organized by the Students’ Association with elected governing bodies, range from social service to sports and games to music, cultural events, and religious activities. An intercollegiate festival called Pegasus is organized every year, in July, with participation by students from various colleges across the country.
The hostel has been modified over the years to suit the needs of modernity; however, it still exudes a warm and friendly ambiance. The Women’s Hostel is run by the Women’s Hostel Association.
