Due to *various reasons*, IISc is falling short of 170-200 rooms for the freshers who have started arriving. An idea was proposed by the Dean, Admission Committee and the Students’ Council to ask existing students to volunteer to share their single-bed rooms with the freshers and, in turn, not pay the hostel fees for the semester. Here are the relevant broadcast and the form for volunteering. The terms/rules for sharing the room are noteworthy.
Here are some sketches on the scenario.
