Before the students arrived on campus, NU undertook a range of safety protocols, starting with pre-arrival Covid-19 tests, screening and sanitisation at the main gate to compulsory quarantining of all students upon arrival. A circular documenting all the precautions students must comply with was circulated before their arrival on campus and is implemented very stringently.

NU offers two modes of admission.

EAD refers to the early admission mode. Under EAD, students apply to their desired course before appearing for their Class XII board examinations.

RAD is the regular admission mode. Under RAD, students apply to NU once their Class XII board examination results are declared, which is when the usual admission season commences.

A student can apply through either mode, it won’t affect their chances of selection.
By completing the admission earlier through EAD, students get to focus completely on their Class XII board examinations and also for their National Entrance Exam.

Additionally, they also get a chance to attend the Head Start Boot Camp (HSBC) designed by NU, along with Camp Future, an exclusive two day getaway which gives students a glimpse of life at NU. Students can avail other benefits too.

Yes, hostel is mandatory for all students. NU, by design, is a fully residential university. The intent is to create a vibrant 24×7 learning ecosystem. All students, along with most of our faculty, deans and area heads, reside on campus.

This culture leads to a lively and active environment where students can interact with their faculty outside of classrooms. Faculty members are available to clear your doubts, and for extra coaching and mentoring, both professional and personal. Students get a chance to work on research projects with faculty members and go on to publish research papers.

Club activities are undertaken after classes in the evening. Sports which has been made compulsory to ensure NUtons remain fit and active, is conducted early morning with matches in the evening.

All this is not possible if part of the student community leaves the campus soon after classes.
