Do we need to buy our own fan and mattress?

Students don't need to purchase their own fans as the rooms come with pre-installed ones. However, mattresses are not provided, and students are required to buy their own. A cot is provided, without the mattress.

Fan: Every hostel room will have basic furnishings including a table with a shelf, a chair, a bed, and an almirah. Other amenities include a LAN port with high-speed internet facilities, charging ports, etc. The electricity services are top-notch, with an overhead fan already being installed in the room.

Mattress: The institute DOES NOT provide mattresses to the students, and it is their responsibility to buy one. To assist them, a mattress sale will be put up in front of the hostels at the time of their entry for a subsidized price.
