This hall is known to be the hall of the rich guys. They are called hall of rich guys because it is believed that before you can live in this hostel, you must have connection with the school authority. Sometimes if you don’t have connection, it is believed that once you have money to settle those who are in charge of the accomodation allocation, you can always live in this hall. This notion is not always true because there are so many students who are given this hall without any form of connection or settlement. Not only that, they always have stable electricity. If other halls did not have electricity, this hall will sure have electricity. The workers washing their toilets are paid by the university and they ensure that they carry out their work diligently unlike other halls which they don’t.
