Shivaji University boasts of three fully furnished and spacious boys’ hostels on its campus. As shown in the table, the Hostels are constructed at different times. The earliest constructed of the three is the Boys’ Hostel No. 1. Later on, with the emerging requirements two more hostels are constructed. The basic purpose behind the establishment of the Boys’ Hostels is that many of the students who seek admission in various course offered by the University come from rural areas. Since the University is the mentor of the studnts in their transformation, the University has to look after the facilities the students get on the campus. Another important fact related to the stay of the students in Kolhapur is that many a times the students are from poor and socio-economically backward classes. Therefore, it is not possible for them to occupy a private room on rent basis because the rent of such private rooms is very high and almost beyond their capacities. Thus, the basic purposes for which the Hostels are constructed are:
- To provide accommodation to the admitted students with minimum rent.
- To provide them various infrastructural facilities.
- To look after the hygienic conditions of the students.
- To provide the required educational environment.

University authorities have allotted quota to each department for admission of the students in the Boys’ Hostels. On the basis of merit and the reservation rules laid down by the Government of Maharashtra, the concerned department prepares the list of interested students for admission. By verifying the admission of the students in the respective departments, Hostel Rectors finalize their admission as per the list sent by the respective department.

It is the Club-Mess, run for and by the students on “No Profit No Loss” basis. In fact, the club-mess system basically intends to provide the students with some basic knowledge of management. Similarly, the quality food at reasonable price is made possible. To ensure the quality of the food, the required material for the mess is purchased from the University Consumers’ Stores.
