Choosing where to stay while you are studying at the College is entirely up to you. We do have a list of housing options for students studying in Mumbai, but it is always a great idea to make sure you thoroughly research your options and make sure your accommodation is in line with your expectations.
Many students at the College prefer to opt for private rentals. It’s important that you consider your commuting distance to the campus, as well as the length of your course when deciding which area to live in. Other things to consider are, of course, your budget, your familiarity with Mumbai, and the type of environment that will suit you while you are studying.
Another option is to look into shared living arrangements with other students at the College. When we have received your deposit, you will be invited to join an online group where you can meet your fellow students and discuss coordinating living arrangements, should you wish.

Student Housing in Mumbai
If you are enrolling on a long-term course, then you may want to opt for a privately rented apartment or house. The best way to do this is through a reputable estate agency or web portals. We would advise anyone taking up a private let to ensure they visit the property in person prior to signing a tenancy agreement to make sure it meets your needs and is in a suitable area for your commute to and from the College.
Estate Agents are privately owned businesses used by landlords to advertise, and often manage, their properties. Using these agencies is a quick way to find a property to let, although it is likely they will charge you a fee for finding your accommodation. Be sure to enquire about fees before signing up to an agency.
To apply for student accommodation services, you will need to search and book at least one month in advance to ensure you obtain a room. You will be required to send a copy of your Passport, Aadhar Card, and sometimes a bank statement.
