Separate hostel facilities are provided for girls and boys. All hostels are equipped with solar water heaters for hot water supply. The students' stay in the hostels enables them to imbibe a different lifestyle and get involved in activities including yoga, meditation, sports, music, etc.

International students are expected to live in the hostel during their course of study. Students are not permitted to live in rented houses, lodges, either alone or in groups.

GITAM attaches great importance to the nature of lifestyle in and out of the campus. Indian food prepared under hygienic conditions is served in the student dining halls and the canteens from a central kitchen.
