    how the hell can 14th block be TEN mins from kc?? crazy? moreover its on the same page where it says 15th block is 7 mins from kc… wooh!!
    by the way, 14th would be 5 min from kc, not more.!!

  2. tmaster says:

    Under any scenario, the time taken from 15th block will be 2 minutes more than the time taken from 14th..:)

    But thats irrelevant since 15th is 1st years only and 14th is seniors only, so there isnt really a choice between them

  3. MITian says:

    Anirudh: yes..but please make sure you guys calculate time with same speed everywhere.. seems more sensible.. 😉

  4. Vikas says:

    Hey please suggest me a good hostel as i’ll be takin admission in first year MIT
    I need a single room with attach bath
    AC or non AC is not an issue

    • For first years they have alloted 15th and 16th blocks. Rest assured these are one of the best hostels not only in Manipal but around India as well! FYI If you want A/C rooms fill in for 15th block and non A/C rooms are in 16th block!

      Welcome to MANIPAL!
