Being away from home is one of the biggest hurdles one will consider before enrolling themselves in a residential program. For some it is yet another 2 years of hostel life, for others, it is their first experience of being all alone by themselves without their family. Home away from home is how we describe our institution.
IIM Amritsar's hostel is presently located approx. two kilometres from the Airport in Blessing City. The Society accommodate students and faculties. Students are provided with 2/3 BHK flats on a twin sharing basis.

The hostel houses a Gym, Recreation room, TV room and facilities to play various sports.
The mess serves breakfast, lunch, evening snacks and dinner. The Hostel and Mess Committee decides the menu for the week/month. Owing to a wide range of people, the menu is prepared such that the cuisine preference of all students are satisfied. The mess serves all types of food including North Indian, South Indian, Chinese and Non-Veg. One might miss mom's food but will never remain hungry as a decent mess fills one's tummies with food and one's hearts with warmth. The payment for mess is made at the beginning of every trimester along with the trimester fees. The Hostel and Mess Committee also holds the responsibility of keeping a check on the hostel infrastructure, housekeeping issues, etc.
