Moreover, development charges of Rs. 14,500 have been introduced to support ongoing improvements and infrastructure development within the university.
DUHS also offers hostel facilities to accommodate students, and the revised fee structure reflects adjustments in this regard. Students availing hostel services will be required to pay a revised hostel security deposit of Rs. 25,000, guaranteeing a safe and secure living environment. The hostel fee has been set at Rs. 40,000, covering essential services and amenities to facilitate a comfortable stay for students.
It is important to note that students with a gap in any examination are required to pay a fee of Rs. 10,000. This fee structure is designed to ensure that students maintain academic continuity and progress seamlessly throughout their educational journey.
Furthermore, in the event of a student cancelling their admission to Dow University, a one-year tuition fee will be applicable.
