Enriching Campus Life

Overview

 

We are located in Dubai International Academic City and offer excellent infra-structure and state-of-the art facilities to our students. Apart from the various facilities offered to our students on the campus, we also provide Student visas, Hostel facilities and Transport facilities.

  • Student Housing

     

    Separate Hostel facilities are provided for both boys and girls. The accommodation is suitably equipped to provide a safe and secure living environment. Each Hostel is provided with a resident warden and other essential staff. The hostel rooms are fully air-conditioned and furnished. Both Vegetarian as well as Non-Vegetarian food is provided for the residents.

    Students will be allotted single room accommodation in the on-campus hostels on first-come-first-served basis, based upon the date of receipt of hostel fee by cash/ cheque/ DD/ TT. In case of non-availability of rooms in the on-campus hostels, accommodation will be made available in the off-campus hostels, arranged by the institution.  Off-campus hostels will also be governed by the same rules and regulations as on-campus hostels and the fee structure is the same. Since off-campus hostels will be in rented premises, students may be accommodated on sharing basis.

    Room allotment will be made on an established procedure and the institute's decision for allotment of rooms shall be final.

    It is mandatory for every BITS student to have medical insurance. The Students must submit at the time of admission the proof of valid health insurance which can be used in UAE. Please note that health insurance taken outside UAE is not acceptable since such card holders have to pay the full bill amount at the time of treatment in UAE hospitals and subsequently get the money reimbursed from the country where the insurance has been taken from. Hence, its advisable to obtain health insurance cards from UAE health insurance companies only. The institute has made arrangements with a leading insurance company to provide health insurance to their students at a reduced cost.
