Every year KIIT conducts ‘Hostel Premier League’ as outdoor and indoor events for boarders. This year, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the event was conducted in virtual mode. On the occasion of “Bharat Ka Amrut Mahotsav’ , KIIT Hostel conducted its 4th event ‘Online Essay Contest’ among the boarders of different boys and girls hostels currently residing at home on 5th October 2021.
