Thadlaskein Hall of Residence
The hostel is named after the Thadlaskein Lake of Jaintia Hills, Meghalaya and is 8 Kms from Jowai on the National highway - 44. It is a man-made lake and is fed by a perennial spring. According to tradition, Sajar Nangli a deputy of the Jaintia King had an irreconcilable difference with the King. Not wanting to be blamed for an inevitable bloodbath he decided to leave the Kingdom with his followers. On their way, they dug the lake with the help of their bows. The lake is still revered by the people of Raid Mukhla who continues to offer sacrifices near the Lake. It is also a popular picnic spot for locals.

The hostel was started from October, 2014. It is a Research Scholar hostel for boys and is having 50 single bedded rooms.
