MNNIT Allahabad is a residential Institute, which requires that all registered students be residents. This commits the Institute to maintaining an adequate number of hostels, and operating them in a manner reflecting the objectives and values of its educational programme.

Each of the boys' Hostels have two wardens and the girls' Hostels has two wardens too. The senior-most warden of the Hostel is normally appointed as warden-in-charge. Residents are required to co-operate with the Warden(s) in the running of the Hostel. They must respect his/her authority in the execution of operational details - room allocation, fixing of schedules for payments, assessment of loss or damage to property assignment of duties to Hostel Staff etc.

They must abide by the norms of conduct and discipline applicable in the Institute and follow any regulations specifically laid down regarding conduct in the Hostel. For infraction of discipline the Warden is the immediate concerned authority. His/her responsibility in all such matters is to the Director, and not to civil authorities outside the Institute.

Hostel accommodation is provided with the understanding that the resident student will strictly abide by the Hostel Rules currently in force or as may be enforced from time to time. Accommodation in the Hostel cannot be claimed as a matter of right. The Institute Administration may refuse accommodation to any student who is known to have grossly violated the Hostel Rules or whose presence is likely to disturb the peace and tranquility of hostel. Violation of hostel rules will make the student liable to disciplinary action including permanent expulsion from the hostels. Students must remember that hostel is the home of the student on the campus and therefore, he/she should behave on the campus as well as outside in such a manner as to bring credit to him/her and to the Institution. A student once admitted in the hostel, will continue to be a hostel inmate throughout the year unless otherwise debarred from the hostel on disciplinary grounds and he/she will have to pay the room rent for both the terms. Every student must be acquainted with all the rules and regulations of the Hostel. He / She must observe them strictly. Ignorance of rules will not be considered as an excuse.
