Named after the Goddess Meenakshi, an avatar of Parvati the Goddess of power and is also known as the Goddess of love and devotion. It has been a long journey for the hostel since it was started by the founder Dr. T.R. Pachamuthu. Meenakshi is also the name of the founder's sister which shows the fond bonding, affection and care that he has towards her and it is with the same fondness Meenakshi welcomes the first year undergraduate students. They are always special and are to be given extra care to help them come out of their natural inhibition. The hostel houses students of various cultures and facilitates the students to adapt to this diverse environment.

Students hailing from different states of India, diverse cultures and varied economic and financial backgrounds live in three shared accommodations. The hostel block is a miniature model of the world outside with people of different habits, temperaments, living style, language and outlook staying and working together. This develops the qualities of understanding and adjustment and sharing and caring amongst the students. It nurtures virtues like adaptability, tolerance and sacrifice developing students into noble and responsible citizens. The hostel block is a self sufficient unit housing all the basic necessities of the students. This enables minimal movement of students outside the hostel premises.
