Ola/Uber options are as safe or unsafe as the person using it believes it to be. We provide college transport at regular intervals for the convenience of students. However, we’ve never had any reported incidents of issues while using these cab services. Also, since we’re located on the hill the frequency of finding uber/ola cabs can be slightly irregular.
As part of our efforts to always put student safety first, the revised timing for students to be back on campus shall be 12.00 am (midnight). However, the time by which students should be inside their respective hostels shall be 02.00 am. Being anywhere on campus, other than inside the apartment of the respective allotted room, beyond 02:00am would be considered as a violation of this norm.
