College life has always been much larger than classroom and studies. It has always been about numerous cups of coffee, unlimited plates of maggi, and the constant chatting with friends about every thing on earth except studying. Delhi University is celebrated for its astounding hangout zones. So lets check it out!

The cool hangout places in North Campus have influenced not only the college culture but have also given a new meaning to the modern education phenomena. The pass-outs from Delhi University still remember their college days and north campus for its cool hangout hubs and not the boring classrooms and the killing sleepless hours of lectures.
"Life completely changes the moment we become a part of the North Campus. The hang-out zones are the best part of it," says Sameeksha, a third year student of Hindu College.

The canteen area tops the list as the hub of social activities; it's the ultimate place where the bunking bugs grant solace. The surrounding vegetation, which includes the long list of the legendary trees, is also a part of this happening list. These trees are like the old friends for the students who witnessed the generations and generations of students.
