Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE) has a separate hostel section under the management of Hostel Management Committee. This committee is headed by its Chairperson. The Chief Warden, MU, Manipal Campus who is the secretary of the Committee administers the day to day aspects of the hostel management at Manipal. All the hostels of the University are divided into three campuses. The hostels of medical, dental and para medical colleges at Manipal are grouped under Chief Warden, MU, Manipal Campus; the hostels of engineering, management and other colleges located at Manipal Institute of Technology complex are grouped under Chief Warden, MIT Campus; and the hostels at Mangalore Campus are grouped under Chief Warden, Mangalore Campus. Each hostel has a Warden from the teaching faculty of the colleges who is responsible for the discipline, maintenance of building, allotment of rooms, etc.
The hostel staff consists of caretakers/block supervisors, other attendants and maintenance staff. The Manipal Integrated Services(MIS) looks after the maintenance of the buildings and other facilities in the hostels. There are messes located at different areas of the campus, which are combined as well as exclusive for boys and girls. Students can choose to be a member of any of these messes. Membership in any one of these messes is compulsory for students staying in MIT campus and Mangalore campus. This is not applicable for health sciences campus. However, all first year students of Health Sciences Campus are required to dine in one of the messes located in the campus, i.e., either Food Court Mess or RKHS Mess. This is due to health/safety concerns and security reasons.
It is desirable that all students stay in the University Hostels. It is mandatory for all first year students to reside in the Hostels. However, first year students desirous of staying outside under own arrangements must submit a consent letter from their Parents duly recommended by their HOI and forward it to Director, Student Affairs for necessary permission. These students must also give their local address, contact/mobile number and subsequent changes if any to their College Office and Director, student Affairs without fail.
