Finding accommodation, NIFT Delhi and NIFT Chennai centres

Finding Accommodation

For all the students who have come away from their homes, finding an accommodation would be one of the biggest headaches. Especially for the north Indian students who go down the south, and for south Indian students who go to north. Interact with the other fellow students whom you meet during the counselling. Form a group and look for the accommodation together. It’s better if you could find the room yourself, or you need to approach brokers who charge a month’s rent as the brokerage. If you weren’t successful in finding one, try putting up a notice in the college notice board for rooms or roommates.

I can help out the students opting for Chennai and Delhi centres, as I belong to NIFT Delhi and Chennai is my hometown. I have accurate knowledge about the locality, in and around these campuses.

NIFT Chennai
NIFT Chennai is located in IT Expressway, Tharamani. As soon as you cross the Tidel Park, you can witness this building with a splendid architecture. NIFT Chennai has a girl’s hostel inside the campus itself. The hostel assures safety and comfort to the female students as it is inside the NIFT Chennai campus. Most of the NIFTians in Chennai stay in Thiruvanmiyur (spelt as ti-ru-vaanm-yooor), Adayar and Kanagam. From the Chennai Central or the Chennai Airport, you can take a taxi or an auto to reach the campus. Rooms in Chennai are not as expensive as those in Delhi and the locality is much cleaner and safer than what we have in Delhi.

NIFT Delhi
NIFT Delhi is situated in Hauz Khas, opposite to Gulmohar Park. Most of the NIFT Delhi students live in Gautam Nagar, Hauz Khas Apartments, Malviya Nagar, Shahpur Jat, Arjun Nagar etc. Girls are also given the choice to stay at the hostel in Gautam Nagar. I strongly recommend the girls to not stay in the hostel, as NIFT does not have a hostel of its own. My batch mates have always complained about the hostel. Ventilation is a major problem in the rooms that they provide. Apart from that, the hostel rooms are not spacious enough.

Hauz Khas Apartments is right next to the NIFT campus building & superbly comfortable given the proximity (if you’re okay with rooms not very big). You can also go hunting for rooms in gulmohar enclave, gautam nagar, etc. One can get accommodation for less capital in Yusuf Sarai and Shahpur Jat. But Yusuf Sarai and Shahpur Jat are damn congested and dirty af.

In case you’re looking for any room or roommates, you can very well write down in the comments.

    Hey,

    Are there many international students at NIFT? I am from Pakistan and I was wondering if there are any students from my country who go to NIFT? I am interested in applying for a Bachelors in Fashion Design, preferably in Delhi.

    Thanks.
