Mysuru, July 14:- In a new initiative, the century old University of Mysore (UoM) has introduced ‘Online registration’ for admission to the hostels of Post-Graduate students pursuing their degrees in the varsity.
A notification on the same was released by the Director of Students Welfare, UoM on Friday. The 100-year-old university which has introduced ‘Online admission’ for PG course admission from the past few years has now come up with this new initiative ‘Online admission’ for students seeking hostel facilities in UoM and its PG centres.
In a notification dated July 13, the time-table and schedule of the online hostel admission process was released. As per the schedule, the filling of online hostel application form begins from July 20 for 2nd year PG degree students who need to apply online before July 26 and get a print out of the copy with supporting documents attested by the head of their respective departments and submit it to the hostel concerned.
The students (men) applying for hostel admission need to submit application at PG Men’s Hostel Block-1 at Manasagangothri while women students need to submit application at PG Women’s Hostel Block-1.
The students seeking hostel admission at UoM PG centres in Hassan, Chamarajanagar and Mandya need to submit their downloaded application in the respective PG hostels. While the first year PG students are eligible to apply from July 27 and the last date for online admission is August 2.
Speaking to CityToday, Director of Students’ Welfare University of Mysore Dr Praveen KB said that this is the first time that the varsity is inviting application online to gain admission to PG hostels. The online hostel admission for Second year PG degree students will start from July 20.
According to sources from UoM, the decision to introduce the online admission was taken to ease the process of admitting PG students to the varsity hostels. Once the students fill the application and other details online, the complete details of the students seeking admission at the university hostel will be collected and thereby streamline the process of allotting them rooms at PG hostels.
It is alleged that few PG students of past batches who resided at PG hostels were ‘renting’ their rooms to other students and earning thousands of rupees from them as a rent. This new initiative from the varsity will also help curb such illegal activities.
