Once you enter the immense gates of Miranda, a subtle feel surrounds you and reaches within. The campus is all green with highly maintained gardens, flowers and huge shady trees. It is just like an intact shining campus painted green. There is no escape from the foliage in this campus.

Miranda House is entirely decorated with a passion and theme- ‘Green’. This clean fresh environment is just a glimpse into the standard and achievements of Miranda House since its establishment. The milestones achieved in every field, and many yet to attain are momentous.


A temple of education to every woman, Miranda House is the key to embark a career. The ‘Non-linear’ subject and career opportunity, being the USP of Miranda, polish every girl and makes them into a fine lady who is ready to take on the world and achieve globally.

The entire building of Miranda House is a unique structure in itself. The corridors are quiet, bright and soothing as the shades of trees are split by the sun rays streaming in. Walking through the campus is as serene as walking inside of a beautiful picture. The departments are divided into sections within the buildings, which are equipped labs, classrooms and workshop areas. Each classroom has a Class schedule (as per the various Delhi University course syllabus) slung outside so that students can know which class is scheduled exactly where. So, the question and defence tactic of ‘being lost’ does not imply at Miranda House as it maps you to every subject sessions.

Those special little corners¦

Out of the many technically equipped classes in Delhi University’s Miranda House, providing ‘the nature’s view’, as they have huge glass walls to gander over the greenhouse, established by the college itself. So, even if the subject is not your interest the view will surely force you to sit and attend the class.

Though every room in Miranda House is special in its own way, there is one room that when spoken of puts a big smile on everyone’s face. The room called ‘The Happy Room’, just like a little poem in itself, is a 12 person capacity room with round coffee tables, chairs and pictures. The view of natural light falling on the faces of great fresh enthusiastic minds having conversations, sharing smiles and planning to achieve something together, is indeed a scene that gets the perfect name-The Happy Room. These special little corners are the privilege of Delhi University students of Miranda House only.

Hustle to get into the Miranda HostelHustle to get into the Miranda Hostel - You surely don’t wanna miss on MH- Home

The word Hostel does make us homesick and a bit afraid towards questions like how the food, fellow students, rules, and importantly the Warden would be. But none among those is applicable when you are in Miranda HouseHostel. It is a Home that you would never want to leave. Not a single hosteller remembers what homesickness actually is.

What makes the Miranda House Hostel so special is that it is perfect in every way for an inmate. Starting with the food, which is important and can’t be compromised, the food here is awesomely delicious and hygienic. The old English style structure of mess has a capacity for over 100 hostellers to eat at a time. Each meal is planned in the best possible way and the decorum of the entire mess is worth mentioning.

For a fresher, the senior students are not dangerous at all! They support each other in every possible way, be it in examinations, ‘Masti’ after the classes or even with the extra-curricular activities. Hostellers eat, study, dance, shout, act and almost do everything together in appropriate manners. The Hostel inside its walls is a little family with a strong bond.

For most of us, a Warden is someone when imagined presents a picture of the cruel Cruella de Vil! In Miranda House, the picture transforms into an Angel! Miranda House warden lets you breathe and enjoy as much as you can. The rules are not meant to bound girls from a day-to-day routine. They have a simple funda of letting the girls enjoy the spirit of womanhood. Though there are guidelines which are to be followed by every resident, rest, even being a hosteller you can explore as much as you want.

Among many facilities at Miranda Hostel, there is television to watch, Student resource Centre opens till late evenings to work in, 24x7 Wi-Fi, café, playing courts and great ambience and room facilities.

The Heart and Soul of Miranda House- always in News!

Miranda House is galore of activities and seminars, along with national and international programmes. Not just academically, life at Miranda House is always buzzing with fests, festivals and club house activities.These activities are the heart and soul of Miranda House, students dancing or practicing under shades and lawns adds more life and color to the campus.

For every upcoming event or in general, both students and faculty sit, work and organize events together. The most important and buzzing activity at Miranda is the annual Fest ‘Tempest’, organized every year on a particular theme. Last year it was ‘Shades of Green’, representing and emphasizing the importance of an Eco-friendly lifestyle. With club activities, theatre performance, socializing events, campaigns and rallies, discussions, sports and cultural activities, if you are not here, you are surely missing one such amazing life.

Hangouts and eateries are to crave forOh, the Hangouts and eateries are to crave for!

They say they have the best Frappe at Miranda, and we surely agree with them. Life gets amazing when you have eateries to die for and hangouts to just get super lazy. Among many others, the frappe and cinnamon tea is the USP of Miranda House available at the small coffee centre just beside the Mushroom shaped shed. Also the mushrooms, because of its shape, is the most active point at Miranda House where students sit, chat, work, scream and do anything and everything.

There is life in everything at Miranda House which makes each corner of the campus a unique hangout. Be it under the shades of Palm trees, besides the beautiful flowers, on the stairs, in the Happy Room, under the mushrooms or even in the classes, the list goes on.

The pride of being ‘MirandaianThe pride of being ‘Mirandaian’

The girls at Miranda may not be proud of anything else, but their pride is clearly represented when they are called as a ‘Mirandaian’. ‘Mirandaian’ if defined is an exceptional and extraordinary league of women generation, who uplifts Miranda House to a new level every time in each task.


When we asked Eisha, a second year student of Sociology, an Indian representative at the United Nations students programme, how she feels about representing India, she said, “It is a proud feeling to represent my country, but what’s more important for me is that I am representing Miranda House at UN level. It’s a pride to the core.”

Her face enlightens and a subtle proud smile came when Eisha answered us. Such is the pride of being at Miranda, it defines you from within.


Life at Miranda is a unique, happy and exceptional living experience!
