Vivekananda Vidyarthi Bhavan

A hostel is being run by the Math for the poor and aspiring students (boys only) who want to take further college education after clearing their H.S.S.C. examination. In accordance with Swamiji's ideals of man-making and character-building education, we try to develop the overall personality of the students. 
The Vivekananda Vidyarthi Bhavan started in 1932 with 4-5 students. A new hostel building with all modern amenities has now been constructed to accommodate 50 students, and 35 students joined in the month of June–July 2023.

  • Very nominal fees are charged, and only for a few students. The math bears all the expenses of lodging and boarding for most of the poor students.
  • Special attention is paid to the physical, intellectual, and moral development of the students.
  • The students have a Study Circle, which organizes various programmes such as debates, symposiums, and lectures by eminent professors and doctors. Lectures by eminent scholars are arranged very often for the benefit of the students. Prizes are awarded to meritorious students in the form of educational and spiritual books.
  • The students also have access to facilities, including games and a textbook library, in the hostel. A full-fledged Gymnasium has been established in the basement of the hostel, where all students derive benefits from it.
  • A computer room with 14 computers and 10 laptops has also been arranged in the hostel, where regular training is being imparted to the students. The students also take advantage of the Math Public Library free of cost. Weekly scriptural classes are held to inculcate moral and spiritual values in the students. The students who have spent a few years in this hostel have become responsible citizens, and many of them are serving society in their respective fields of activity. The passed-out graduate and postgraduate students have been selected for jobs in reputed organizations.
