The dormitory has a total capacity of 860 Students spread over eight levels. The design layout successfully attempts to organise the students into clusters around a central social spine. Each such cluster for eleven students is self-sufficient and connected via open corridors. The central spine has an open air amphitheatre, a cafeteria and access to a large dining hall stimulating social life in the complex. Special consideration has been given to the unity of the overall academic landscape. The exterior facade has a concrete finish with a modernistic appeal to it. It is dominated by a two storey concrete band in earthy colours at top level which further imparts vibrancy to the building.
