As mentioned earlier, RCIT is a fully residential environment. This is necessary because most of the rural students come from a geographically distributed wide area and would not be able to commute to the campus. Thus, it is essential to provide a fully residential campus with all of the facilities included such as shops, hospitals, bank, ATM, etc. appropriate for a community of about 2,000 people consisting of 1200 students, 300 faculty and staff and 50 service providers of various types. The Principal of the Institute also becomes the pseudo-Mayor of this township dealing with the typical problems of community based living. Since the students are joining the institution at the age of 15 where they are undergoing physical transformation and hormonal changes, being away from home adds to their stress.
