MCS Hostel aka Companies


First things first, to those who don’t know, MCS Hostel comprises of two blocks called companies namely; Iqbal Company and Jinnah Company. Iqbal Company is for GCs and Jinnah Company is for NCs.

Apart from the discussion of GCs and NCs, i will try to sum up the condition of hostels.

Is it what is being portrayed?

The title picture is indeed an original one, no editing. But is the hostel always this beautiful or are there some concealed facts?

Let’s take you on a trip inside the hostel. To the places which are kept hidden, and for good reasons.


As you have traversed past the magnificent entrance you might have noticed the change in paint, it is one among many.

Researches shows that these rooms haven’t been painted since 2008 (even earlier but no soundproof of that has been found).

Termite is another issue. Thanks to the efforts of our Hostel Warden this matter has recently been solved but the harm is done.

Need I say a word?

Next up is the condition of bathrooms. True that we have no authority over Natural Gas but at least we can ensure availability of hot water in every bathroom or is that too too much to ask? There is only one geyser serving for 8 bathrooms.on an average 1 out of 4 bathrooms in every corridor is out of order (I wish that we also have a moaning myrtle per bathroom too) if not the hot water can we at least have the bathrooms in running condition?

With some inflow of cash we are now having our rooms repainted but the cash required to repair bathroons is still unavailable.

This is Muneeb Khan Reporting from Room 13, Jinnah Company.

    I was gonna say something, but the guy above me already said much more then I would have 😀

    Dude its not a hotel. I have sepnt a few nights at EME and LUMS. Jinnah Company is definitely better than EME, and atleast at par with LUMS. and LUMS hostel is way more expensive (although there you can sleep on the common room floor with AC on). Plus there are much more toilets/sinks/showers than needed for 100 people (I think thats about the capacity of Jinnah Company).

    In case no one told you, there is a complaint register in the mess to report broken things. It might take a month to fix, but it will be fixed if you report it.

    dont be a hater!

    @ Umer
    The point here is a lot of students plan to stay at the hostel and then complain that they were misinformed.
    As for the tag, my mistake, I am sorry.

    Dude whether its a hotel or hostel, the fact remains that we pay for these services. The problem is misuse of budget. The administration will willingly spend money on purchase of new curtains but if you complain about bathrooms they would say, sir budget nai h, approval nai milit minute sheet ki.
    As for the negatives, I think I have highlighted the good works too!

    Yaar, Are room at NUST hostels shared? If so, how many students share a room? Are bathrooms attached or community bathroom? Can anyone request single accomodation?

      2 students share a room and community bathrooms.
      Yes! Final year students get single room but have to use community bathrooms.
