It is approximately 4 kilometres from the main bus terminus of Hamirpur town on the National Highway running through Hamirpur and Toni Devi.

Being a residential institute, there are five boys' hostels and one girls' hostels in the campus along with separate residences for the faculty and staff. Each hostel has its own peculiarities. Some have four-seated or triple-seated rooms, while others have doublets and singlets. The different hostels are:

Dhauladhar Boys' Hostel
Kailash Boys' Hostel
Manimahesh Boys' Hostel
Parvati Girls' Hostel
Shivalik Boys' Hostel
Vindhyachal Boys' Hostel

The canteen, juice bar, Nescafe coffee bar and the nearby Ekta Cafe are some of the most frequented jaunts. Not to forget Tilak's Dhaba, which used to serve delicious dishes even in the middle of the night when the examinations were in full swing.Sadly(shockingly for the alumni who might not be aware of this recent development),the Tilak la dhaba was closed by the college authorities for no good known reason.Students are terribly disappointed over this gratuitous and extreme step taken by the college authorities. The complete absence of a movie hall in the district is overcome by the fortnighly movie shows held in the auditorium.

Hill 'Ffair and Nimbus are the official cultural and technical festivals respectively. Nimbus is a comparatively younger event than Hill 'Ffair. During the days of Hill 'Ffair the open air theatre becomes the nerve-centre for all activity. The rock show, fashion parade, and the Mr. & Miss Hill 'Ffair competitions are some of the most popular events.
