If you are studying in Delhi University, it’s definitely fun to be in North Campus, a place boasting some of the coolest hangout zones like D-School (popular for mutton dosas and JP Tea Stall), Kamla Nagar market, Tom uncle and more.

But it does not mean that students from other parts of the city don’t have fun.

The other world
For girls of Lady Sri Ram College (LSR), it’s places like GK 1 M-block market, Defence Colony and Ansal Plaza.

“The GK 1 M Block market provides great options for food as well as shopping,” says Pankhuri Chandra of LSR. “Even the Defence Colony market has great crowd and makes for a great hang-out with friend.”

Students of Bhagat Singh College at Sheikh Sarai Phase 2 are mostly seen enjoying at the Select Citywalk and DLF Place malls in Saket.

“The food court at DLF mall gives great options to choose from. Also, one can bunk morning classes and catch the morning show at the multiplex there,” says Sonia Sapra, a student of the college.

On the other hand, for the girls of Kalindi College at East Patel Nagar, the evergreen Connaught Place and the malls at Rajouri Garden are favourite places to have some fun.

“We even go to Rajendra Place to eat at McDonalds and Nirula’s. For movies, Wave Cinema at Raja Garden, Fun Cinemas at Moti Nagar or Satyam at Shadipur are the best option,” reveals Srishti Sharma, a journalism student.

Heading east
For students of Maharaja Agarsen College in East Delhi, Sameer Kebab Corner and Noida’s Sector 18 market make for the perfect escape zones.

“There are not many places to go around in the East, but with the metro connectivity, we have started going to the malls in Noida. There is also an amusement park nearby,” says Ankit Negi, a student.

Then there are the students of Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce in Pitam Pura. For them, Netaji Subhash Place is the best bet to chill out. “The adventure park in Rohini is very cool,” says Kanika Bhatia.

So the next time the ‘northerners’ boast of their addas, you know where to take them.
