The debate, ­moderated by RJ Abhilash, started with Richa who said, "Permission for night outs are granted ­easily by our wardens and we often have DJ nights and parties in our hostel. We get four meals in a day with a variety of dishes."
Nikita defended her hostel saying, "Our hostel has been a hub for shoots of films like Special 26 and Fukrey. We celebrate festivals in our hostel, and we have social gatherings and we visit boys’ hostels too." RJ Manu judged the debate and announced Miranda House the winner.
