They even have Wi-Fi Internet connection throughout the campus! The campus boasts of A Sports Center, Net-cafe, Auditoriums,Seminar Halls, Open Air Theater and much more.

Hostel for Boys and Girls is available on campus. Students are pleased with the hostel infra; they’re decent enough to stay at for four years. The main complaint is about the food in the mess though. But for that there are so many other options on campus like Amul cafe, canteens of other colleges, etc.

I am stating few common facilities at this infrastructure of sinhgad institutes : Hostel and Mess(Both for Boys & Girls), Security(24Hrs), Accessibility & Transport (Municipal Transportation Buses to important points in pune), Campus Clinic (well equipped), Shops (basic needs, stationary, bus and train bookings, etc.), Banking (banks & ATM), Recreational Facilities (sports,cultural, etc.).
