Hostel

The National Law School campus with all its 500 odd students and the faculty residing in the same campus is a like a miniature India. With such interaction comes the greater need to adjust and share opinions, and to build an outlook necessary to become budding lawyers. Residing on campus enables students to widen their horizon and acquire important inter-personal skills.

There are three Halls of Residence for men known by the names Ganga, Cauvery and Himalaya and three Halls of Residence for women known as Nilgiris, Annexe and Mess Block. In addition there are two P.G. Women’s Hostels. Students of the first year are generally provided separate accommodation. While the first year students are allotted dormitories, from the second year onwards, they have the option of triple seater rooms, which are T-shaped and, once a curtain is drawn across the entrance, each becomes a private cubicle. Women students have a choice of twin seaters, in addition to the triple seater rooms. There are also a few single rooms available in both hostels. These are usually given to students in the final year.

Library

The library is the ‘heart’ of any academic institution and plays an important role in all academic activities and, the more so, in law institutions. Known as Sri Narayana Rao Memorial National Law Library, its establishment was generously assisted through the munificence of Mrs. Sudha Narayanamurthy of INFOSYS. This is a three storied building of 30,000 sq.ft. built-up area with ample space for storage of books and for reading purposes. The library has been planned keeping in view the aims and objectives of the Law School, and is being operated by a team of professionally qualified library staff guided by the Library Council. It has a collection of over 40,000 volumes covering a wide range of general and special subjects, comprising of text books, reference books, back volumes of journals and reports etc., apart from current legal periodicals. The Library functions from 8.30 a.m till midnight on all days of the week, but closing hours will vary on Holidays.
