If you are a capital city and a leading education hub of the country, you are bound to attract millions of students who aspire to experience better education and even career opportunities that you have to offer. And when you do this for quite a few decades, your infrastructure has to evolve to cater to your guests. That’s why, when in Delhi, you’ll be as spoilt for choice as we were trying to put together this list of ‘topmost’ student living hotspots. Whether you choose a girls PG in Delhi, a boys hostel, a shared apartment or any of the hundreds of exciting rental options, checking out some cool options in these places would be a great place to start your research:
If you have signed up for a coaching institute or you are preparing for a competitive exam and need a great environment to study in, Mukherjee Nagar is the place for you. Considering this has been a proper hub for migrant students for decades, finding a PG in Mukherjee Nagar isn’t a difficult task. However, you need to weed through the many options to get a place that ticks off all the boxes on your checklist. In between your preparations and coaching classes, you really don’t have the time to worry about anything other than rent. So, pick a new-age managed accommodation like Stanza Living that takes care of all your needs, giving you a living experience that is comfortable, secure and hassle-free.
Kamla Nagar is definitely among the most sought-after destinations in North Delhi along with Model Town. A stone’s throw from Delhi University’s North Campus, Kamla Nagar is an out and out student hub. Here you’ll find a whole bunch of options from locally managed PGs to professionally managed student accommodations to choose from. The rent here can range from INR 7000 to INR 20,000 depending on how well-equipped a facility you want, with top end places like Stanza Living providing a full-package of daily amenities like food, laundry, WiFi, housekeeping, electricity, water, common appliances, ACs and more.
Yet another popular location in South Delhi for college students (considering most Delhi University, South Campus colleges are barely a 15-minute walk from here) Satya Niketan is an extension of your college campus. Parking yourself in its quaint cafes and trying a new menu item everyday is a good way to complete an academic session. And if you want to sample some more eateries, hangout spots, historic monuments that Delhi has to offer, you are just a metro-ride away from places like Hauz Khas, Chanakya Puri, Rajouri Garden, Sarojini Nagar and so much more.
Located in South-East Delhi, Lajpat Nagar is a favourite locality of students and young working professionals. The fact that you get convenient accommodation options across price points is a key factor in its favour. But even more so, is the fact that Lajpat Nagar is just such a fun place to stay in. Satisfy your daily snack-craving with yummy street food options, pick your hundredth pair of shoes (because 99 pairs are such an odd number to stop at), or just get lost in the quaint curio and art stores that dot its narrow lanes.
Finding an accommodation provider near your institute would be the word from the wise as you can save one commute money and time while on more important things in life. You could of course, also not choose to restrict yourself to these places. Find heart in the foodie paradise that is Karol Bagh or bust your FOMO in the cafes and clubs of a Hauz Khas. With a solid spider web network that is the Delhi metro, you can choose to live anywhere across the city that speaks to your comfort. Between practicality and sentimentality, you are sure to find an exciting place to stay in Delhi.
