Hangouts:

There’s Ansal Plaza, which is the only nearby hangout for all KP-1, 2 and 3 colleges.

There’s also a place called Jagat farm market near Knowledge Park – 1 where there are a lot of shops and local eating joints.

 

Canteen:

There are 2 canteens, a hostel mess and a CCD-Xpress in the campus. Thus you can get a wide variety of food to choose from.
