BITS Hyderabad

The life at BITS Hyderabad is just AWESOME!!!!

Yes, the campus is new(not actually xD, its 12 years old by now) compared to other premier institutes of India but has emerged to become one of the most preferred colleges in India. You have students coming from different parts of India, spend a great 4/5 years in campus and graduate out as proud and successful BITSians. The teaching here cannot be compared to that of Pilani campus, as the same curriculum is followed here too. In fact, most of the faculty here are experienced and came here after teaching at Pilani campus. That’s why in rankings such as QS,NIRF etc.. BITS Pilani is treated as one single entity rather than three separate campuses.

As the admission is purely based on merit, the student quality here is very high which means you have heavy competition too. The grading system is somewhat strict and tough compared to other colleges, so you have to work really hard to end up on a good grade.

But does this mean, we all spend a very studious life? Not at all!! The LITE way of living is what makes our stay at BPHC more interesting and enjoyable.The amazing facilities, infrastructure, the ever energetic environment and amazing group of buddies around us are those what makes our life as LITE as possible.

  • There is a bus-stop at entrance and buses run from BITS Campus to Secunderabad every hour. You can reach the city by catching 212 bus. It’s a 50 minute beautiful journey.
  • The nearest Cinema theaters are “Carnival Cinema, Leonia” at 5 km, “ Narthaki Movie-Max” at 15 km from campus. Movies are screened in our beautiful auditorium every Saturday:
  • We have DC++ setup in every hostel room, via intranet (Thanks to wonderful students who maintain it!). There’s amazing stuff available, right from any Books, Online Lectures of whatever subject, Movies, TV Shows and much more.
  • We have Foot-ball Ground, a Hockey Ground, A Cricket Field, Volley-ball Court, Kabaddi Court, Basket-ball courts, Tennis Courts, Indoor Badminton Courts, Chess Room, Carrom-Board Room and others. Playing any Sport is a good option. There’s a two floor Gymnasium. Working out is always a good option.
  • There is a Heartfulness “Heart-Spot” at Thumkunta, 4 Km away from BITS Campus. They offer free meditation guidance. You can plan to attend a Heartfulness session there, every Sunday. They provide Breakfast too.
  • We have a lot of resorts nearby. Summer-Green, Domus, Leonia etc.,
  • There are decent Restaurants near-by: Tandoor Multi-Cuisine Restaurant, Chillies & Pepper, The Elephant Restaurant, Ginger Kitchen, Viceroy Dhaba, Rajendar Punjabi Dhaba, Alankrita, Santosh Family Dhaba, and others.
  • Our Academic Block is magnificent.
  • Library, with access to thousands of books
  • Beautiful Hostels

Hostels are well maintained and rooms are spacious enough. High Speed Internet is accessible from the hostel rooms through a LAN cable connected to laptop(LAN ports are available to every student in their rooms). Our students also maintain a very large file sharing network in DC++ which is accessible through the LAN. Lot of movies,study materials, web series are available on the hubs maintained by our students. There are play areas and common rooms with TV,TT table, foosball, chairs, air cooler in every wing of the hostel and you can use them anytime you want. The in time for both boys and girls hostels is 2 am, and you can roam anywhere within the hostel after that!! Where can you get such freedom?

Coming to mess food and hostels, I would confidently say ours is much better than those of other colleges. Given that ours is new compared to others, the infrastructure is top class and modern. There are 2 messes here, which is common to both boys and girls and you are free to use any of these two. I wouldn’t exaggerate by saying food is awesome, but it is decent enough here. They serve Paneer/Non-veg twice a week and there’s a special dinner once a week. There’s something called gala dinner every month, and even a grand moonlight dinner every sem where food is really awesome.

You may ask, why should I even bother in-time being 2 am? What will I do outside till that time? Here comes ANC (All Night Canteen). Some days the mess food can get as boring as it can get, and ANC comes to your rescue. You can get really good stuff with wide variety of options as in a restaurant. You also have these food outlets like Yummpys,Chipotle,Wich Please, C3,Amul,Maggi Hotspot,Nescafe that are functional till 2 am (yes, they are a bit costly). Usually we celebrate birthday parties and stuff in ANC or these outlets.

Finally, coming to other facilities, we have this neatly maintained, very beautiful rock garden with an artificial waterfall which you pass through every day to get to acad block for your classes. And the way the acad block lawns and nescafe lawns are maintained is simply amazing.

Then there is this student activity center(SAC) with gymnasium, rooms for playing billiards, TT, carrom, chess etc., international standard badminton and squash courts, and student club/assoc meeting rooms. We also have courts for basketball and tennis and grounds for kabaddi ,football ,hockey ,cricket ,frisbee. Currently, a world class swimming pool and an athletics track are under construction and expected to be completed within a year. The best thing about our campus is the amazing auditorium with a seating capacity of around 3500, where a movie is screened every week (we get to screen the recent ones, that are running in theatres). Then there is also a shopping complex called the “Connaught Place” with all kinds of shops for stationaries, fruits,laundry, books, medicines,etc., salon, supermarket and State Bank branch with ATM. All the shops here and the food joints in the campus accept digital payment. There is also a medical center that is functional 24 hours and can be approached in case of any emergency. It also serves to be of a great help for getting medical certificates for applying makeups for labs xD (lab sessions are kinda compulsory here, if you want marks). So BPHC is a wholesome residential campus with all kinds of facilities and you never need to step out of campus if you require something.

Above all, the diversity of cultures found here is amazing and every festival ,be it Ganesh Visarjan, Durga Puja, Holi, Onam, Ugadi, Pongal, is celebrated in a grand manner here. We have regional assocs representing each language for celebrating their respective festivals. Every year we celebrate this ethnic day called “Sanskriti” featuring music and dance performances from people representing each region of India and we all wear our traditional dresses on that day.

Then we are free go out and explore or chill out with our friends for a movie or party in Hyderabad on holidays.(There’s a direct bus running from campus to Secunderabad and an auto stand outside). People native to Hyderabad also usually go to their home every week.

One fine evening in BPHC

Beautiful rainy day
