All the departments have their own dedicated libraries complete with internet facilities and laboratories wherever needed. The libraries have a large and extensive collection of books, and national and international journals that are updated each academic year.

The colleges have separate hostel facilities for boys & girls, with each of them having different capacities according to the strength of the students in each department. The institutions offer clean, comfortable and safe hostels for all the students in the campus. The rooms, which are on four to a room basis, twin sharing and single occupancy basis are spacious, well–furnished with beds, study tables, cupboards, and even solar water heaters, and all rooms have attached bathrooms.

Finishing School

At Krupanidhi we realise that students need to be prepared to enter the workforce, nascent and blooming into adult life as they are. Recognising this critical need Krupanidhi’s finishing program gives its students, who are bubbling with energy and excitement to take on the the world, a final touch of polish, making them complete and ready for the working world. Krupanidhi’s concept of a finishing school is more than just etiquette and charm; it’s about making the students employable in the dynamic industry of today. Through its structured and practical program, Krupanidhi aims to increase the industry–readiness of graduates as well as their productivity, to bridge the gap between the education sector and the industry and to create synergies between them, and to ensure that a higher pool of industry–ready students is available for recruiting. We at Krupanidhi are proud of this one of a kind program.

Student Counseling

College life though is portrayed as a carefree one, is fraught with issues which can directly affect the mental well being of the student who is in a very vulnerable age. Thankfully, gone are the days when a person`s mental health was seen as a mark of strength and overall ability. College students are constantly worrying about their choice of career, personal life, competitive outside world, and how they are perceived by their peers to name a few. This is by far the most sensitive time in their life which also has far reaching effects on them as an adult too.

Krupanidhi College does not see students as mere students but as young adults who would need expert guidance in times of need. We have a counseling centre which is open during college hours and our top notch counselors do not see this as a mere job and are available any time any day imparting wisdom and best ways of dealing with issues the students are troubled with. The Counseling Centre is an integral part of the college and the students, the teachers and the parents have the liberty to walk in whenever they want to to discuss how best to deal with the issues in hand.

Considering how the issues are unique from student to student, there is no set way of dealing with it, but rest assured our counselors are the best in the field and in serious, life threatening scenarios would interact with the respective parents to chart the best way forward. Each and every session will be confidential and would not be disclosed to anyone unless we need parental interference. Apart from this, students are often given career counseling too.

Sports

When it comes to sports and extracurricular activities, the Krupanidhi Group gives equal prominence and importance to it as much as they do to academics. The college has extensive sports facilities for many sports right from volleyball, basketball, and badminton to football and the all–time–favourite cricket. Evenings see a flurry of activity on the grounds of the college with students playing various sports and many even enjoying as an interested audience. There is also an on–campus basketball court for the students to develop their talent. There are many sports clubs for different activities too, and they see active participation from the students and encouragement from the college faculty.

Apart from sports, the college also encourages and motivates its students to participate in many extracurricular activities. The college has many cultural clubs and societies such as the hobby club, the literary club, the IT club, NSS clubs, cultural clubs, and musical bands. The college also has developmental cells such as the Women’s Development Cell, as well as academic clubs.
