It is truly said that every college has its own experience, but some experiences are still better than the rest and studying at Amity is one of those.
Students nowadays don’t just demand quality education but also an over all development in their personality so that they can make their place in the big crowd that surrounds them everywhere, and a befitting institute for such students is Amity University.
Campus and Infrastructure
Amity is a private university located in the sector 125 of Noida, on the highway that goes to greater Noida. This also connects it to Delhi and Ghaziabad by road, making it easier for the students to commute daily by their personal vehicles. They also have an option to travel by metros as the nearest metro station, Botanical Garden, is just 4 kms away.
However students except the localities, prefer staying at the hostel facility provided in the campus. Amity makes sure that all those who need accommodation gets one either at one of the six campus hostels or if they get full then at off-campus hostels in sector 44. The hostels are like residential apartments and the rooms are very well furnished. The rooms are available as single or 2/3/4 sharing and you’ve to pay accordingly. First years aren’t given single rooms no matter what. AC rooms are also available, which are said to be much better than non-ac, and are also priced very high, of course.Students find the Amity hostel life quite happening as compared to the other college hostels.
The central area of the main block (i.e H-block) is a really great place with franchisees of famous cafes & restaurants like CCD, Dominos, Subway and Dosa Plaza.
There’s also a book shop where you can buy all the academic as well as non-academic books and there’s a nice stationary shop called P3 in H block. All the buildings are centrally air-conditioned and all the facilities that may ever be needed in a college are there.
Another perk that attracts many students are the events where bollywood’s big stars visit the campus to promote their movies and also many celebrities perform proving yet again that it is one of the biggest and the best private university of India.
There are also many festivals being organized in the Amity campus, but one main event is the inter-amity sport festival called ‘Sangathan’ which is arranged on the foundation day of the college in the month of September.
