South Campus or North Campus, which side of Delhi University is cooler? The debate is never-ending and while both the parties have great arguments to prove themselves better and cooler, we’ll step aside and let you guys decide. And to help you with that, we have listed out some reasons that make the South Campus students feel way better than their Northern counterpart, read up!
1. Foodie Hub - Satya Niketan
Satya Niketan is popularly known as the Hudson Lane of South Campus but hey, let’s not undermine this place. It’s basically a foodie’s hub and has options like Big Yellow Door, QD’s, Woodbox Cafe, Echoes, Chowringhee, WAFL, Kev’s Cafe and tons more where you can head to for a post-lecture bite. So, if the North Campus walas thought that Hudson was the coolest student-friendly place, then we’d say it’s time to think again!
2. For All Your Shopping Needs - Sarojini Nagar & GK - M Block Market
If North Campus students thought that Kamla Nagar was the ultimate street shopping destination, then let us burst your precious bubble, guys. Sarojini Nagar is the ultimate street shopping spot in town where you can score the trendiest clothes, accessories, footwear, handbags and much more. And also, how can we miss out the M Block Market in GK I?! Here, you can snag floral printed t-shirts, flowy dresses & midis, cool clutches and basically everything that you can think of. So, we think this round clearly goes to South Campus!
3. Leather Jacket & Bags Shopping @ Yashwant Place
Leather boots, jackets and bags are absolute must-haves in Delhi's winter and since our broke self can't afford those branded shoes, the South Campus walas simply head to Yashwant Place Shopping Complex. This place is a haven for leather products and you can grab genuine or faux leather backpacks, wallets, shoes and even jackets here at pocket-friendly prices. So, brush up your bargain skills, after all, winter is coming, guys!
4. A Host Of Peppy Bars To Chill At In Khan Market
Parties, parties and more parties - that’s what college life is all about and no one understands that better than the students in South Campus. With Khan Market, the coolest hangout place in town nearby, the students from this part of the campus make sure they take full advantage of this fact. You’ll find this market brimming with students, partying the night away at Public Affair, The Immigrant Cafe, The Chatter House and tons of other rad places!
5. The MOST Iconic Place To Chill At With Your Buddies - Diggin
Okay, Diggin is legit one of those iconic places in the city where you can sit with your friends, devour finger-licking Italian food and enjoy a good conversation. The vibrant and earthy ambience of this place surely adds to the charm and makes it one of the most popular hangout haunts of all the South Campus students. Umm, Northerners, got something that could match this?
6. For That Mandatory Dose Of Caffeine - Taj CCD
Cafe Coffee Day is synonymous to java for all of us and if you’re a South Campus student then the CCD opposite Taj Palace Hotel HAS gotta be one of your favourite places in town.
