CoHo Dorms is a student housing provider in and around Delhi. It boasts of high tech facilities with feedback and complaint mobile apps for students, cleanliness and quality staff.

However, students have made allegations of alleged employee misconduct against CoHo. A recent incident has come to light, wherein a student of Delhi School of Economics (DSE) has alleged physical and mental assault by a staff member at CoHo’s Kamla Nagar residency.
The resident being referred to is Siddhi Sidmukh, an LSR alumna who is currently pursuing M.A. in Economics from DSE.  A recipient of several beauty pageants awards, Siddhi claims to be the oldest and highest paying resident at CoHo, Building No. 38, Kamla Nagar, New Delhi. She claims that she was attacked by a resident faculty member named Mamta Gupta. A confrontation with regards to A.C. repairs and general behaviour apparently escalated into verbal threats of physical assault Siddhi claimed that she was subsequently beaten up and thrashed. Several other members of the residence stood witness to the same, and it was only after all the resident girls collectively tried to calm things down, that the violence seemed to diffuse. Siddhi has provided DU Beat with pictures as proof of the injuries she endured. A police complaint was lodged by Siddhi, and she also conveyed the particulars of the incident to the authorities at CoHo. However, the complainant says no action was taken against the accused in this particular case. They have also reportedly failed to provide Siddhi with video recordings of the same incident (the area was under CCTV surveillance). Siddhi also claims that the security guard refused to intervene and that Ms. Mamta has often accused her of “selling her body” and general misbehaviour.
The DU Beat correspondent has been told that another resident at CoHo, Ms. Soumyaa, has claimed that Ms. Mamta had been a nuisance to the residence for a long time. Several complaints were lodged against her conduct and actions, but the same has gone in vain. The authorities at CoHo have reportedly failed to take action and address the issue. “We have an app wherein we write complaints. I did so twice, received acknowledgements, but nothing was done”, said Soumyaa.
Notably, CoHo staff has been unresponsive to calls made by DU Beat.

With the Class 12 results out, an entire new batch of students is all set to be caught up in the frenzy of Delhi University admissions. While getting into a good college and a course of your choice are the concerns on top of everyone’s lists, another concern that ranks not much far under those is that of accommodation. Delhi University sees a huge number of outstation students – and this year even a higher number of foreign students- applying every year. While hostels, Paying Guest accommodations and independent flats are definitely an option, they all come with their own sets of issues.

Hostels offered by Delhi University and the colleges under it are limited, to say the least. They are also usually not open for students from Delhi, which becomes an issue for students who, while in Delhi, live two hours away from the campus. DU hostels have recently been surrounded by controversies brought up by the lack of availability of necessities like water supply and the Pinjra Tod campaign which has been fighting against discriminatory rules against women. A notice has been issued by the Delhi Commission for Women to all hostels in DU and institutions around Delhi. PGs come with their own sets of restrictions and accompanying high costs too.

Keeping all these issues in mind, CoHo.in has come up with CoHo dorms to bridge this gap of demand-supply for students. CoHo dorms are state-of-the-art rental accommodations. They are fully-furnished and fully-maintained, with a spacious common lounge area suitable for college clubs’ meetings too!


The dorms are vibrant and suit the enthusiasm of starting a new phase of life in college. There are thematic photo-frames on the wall with guitars and drums on the couches and games on the desk. They also offer study areas to all students with a place to keep their books and build up a personal library of sorts. Understanding the situation of most college students, who are tempted to visit the various food joints around the university but are often too broke for it, they have partnered with foodpanda, Pizza Hut, Beer Café and others which will offer CoHo residents exclusive discounts.

The rent, including AC, 24/7 high-speed internet, and wholesome meals, starts from INR 10,000 and isn’t exorbitant!

CoHo will be coming up with dorms around Malka Ganj, Hudson Lane and Kamla Nagar areas, all of which are very near to the North Campus, before the session begins. One of their dorms in Shakti Nagar is available for viewing and will be ready for moving-in in June.

CoHo.in will be hosting a fun Gaming Night on May 28. For more information, visit their Facebook page. Find out more about them here.
