    Introduction: For a happy and fulfilling college life, accommodative preferences and lodging matters immensely. To achieve this, the opinions and grievances of different voices must be taken into consideration, and so this survey is undertaken under the hopes of relating to the experiences of new-term and old-term hostelites. The differences and varying capacities to adapt to new surroundings and situations are the undertone of this comparison. Materials and Methods: The study was done through a questionnaire. A form was circulated among 50 new-term (duration of stay: 1 year or less) and 50 old-term (duration of stay: 2 years or more) hostel students which included questions regarding their adaptive capacities, their preferences and their personal opinions on various day-to-day scenarios and how they coped with them. Apparent results were obtained using proper statistical methods, and thus the differences between the opinions of new-term and old-term hostel students were studied. Results: From the data, it is clear that old-term hostelites are better adapted and acclimatized to hostel-life than new-term hostelites due to factors such as time and experience. Conclusion: The statistical results of this survey pointed to the fact that the old-term hostelites were much better accustomed and oriented to hostel life than the new-term students. The old-term hostelites were less homesick and were better adapted to face the problems that arose, and so the majority of them considered the hostel to be their second home.
