Hostel management system

Objective of the Project


As the name specifies “HOSTEL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM” is a software developed for managing
various activities in the hostel.
For the past few years the number of educational institutions are increasing rapidly.
Thereby the number of hostels are also increasing for the accommodation of the students studying in
this institution.
And hence there is a lot of strain on the person who are running the hostel and software’s are not
usually used in this context.
This particular project deals with the problems on managing a hostel and avoids the problems which
occur when carried manually.
Identification of the drawbacks of the existing system leads to the designing of computerized system
that will be compatible to the existing system with the system which is more user friendly and more
GUI oriented. We can improve the efficiency of the system, thus overcome the drawbacks of the
existing system.

Abstract:
The existing system is a manually maintained system. All the hostel student details are entered into
records manually. Separate records are to be maintained for the details of each student, fee details,
room allocation, attendance etc. All these details are entered and retrieved manually. We have
researched on many software in internet, related our field and we have found that database
management system is less used for hostel management but it is used in other fields. Most of them
were web-based .System like library management, hospital management, student management etc.
are used a lot. In Library Management System, system used to manages the catalog of a library.
This helps to keep the records of whole transactions of the books available in the library. In this
system we found many admin panel those who were library staffs. In Hospital management System,
system tracks its day-today activities & records of its patients, doctors, nurses, and other staff
personals that keep the hospital running smoothly & successfully. Description of our project like
other system, we can store information. This Hostel Management System is developed in context of
the hostel management team which helps them to save the records of the students about their room
and all other necessary things. This solution is developed on the plight of the hostel management
team through this they cannot require so efficient person to handle and manage the affairs of the
students in the hostel. All you need to do is login as administrator and you can see the information
of all the students who use hostel. Identification of the problems of the existing hostel management
leads to the development of the computerized solution that will be compatible to the existing hostel
management, with the solution which is more users friendly and more GUI oriented. We can
improve the efficiency of the hostel management, thus overcome the drawbacks of the existing
management. Hence the aim of the system is to provide the computerized management system for
hostel that will transform the hostels from its manual state to a well-known designed computerized
state. Thus to say overall our software reduces the work of admin penal and also through this we
can check the personal profiles of all the current students within few minutes

Online Hostel Management System for University of Otago, New Zealand


University of Otago is located in New Zealand. It has a very popular system for managing hostels.
Their fame is solely due to its online feasibility. It has ability to manage up to 1,0000 students, staff
members, teachers and other employee. Students of the University can apply for hostalization
sitting in their homes. And teachers, or managers of the hostel can approve or disaprove them from
their homes. No one needs to go to the university for hostel registration.
But it had two major problems making it not suitable for giccl, which are,
 Not developed specifically for college level.
 Learning how to use it, is difficult.
 Implementation of such big program would be out of budget.

Description of our project


Like other system, we can store information. This Hostel Management System is developed in
context of the hostel management team which helps them to save the records of the students about
their room and all other necessary things. This solution is developed on the plight of the hostel
management team through this they cannot require so efficient person to handle and manage the
affairs of the students in the hostel. All you need to do is login as administrator and you can see the
information of all the students who use hostel. Identification of the problems of the existing hostel
management leads to the development of the computerized solution that will be compatible to the
existing hostel management, with the solution which is more users friendly and more GUI oriented.
We can improve the efficiency of the hostel management, thus overcome the drawbacks of the
existing management. Hence the aim of the system is to provide the computerized management
system for hostel that will transform the hostels from its manual state to a well-known designed
computerized state. Thus to say overall our software reduces the work of admin penal and also
through this we can check the personal profiles of all the current students within few minutes.
Literature Review

Information system is a system, automated or manual, that comprises people, machines,


and or methods organized to collect, process, transmit, and disseminate data that
represent user information. (Wikipidia)

According to John Cooper, Jane Sullivan, (2003), failure of


the information systems can cause a major loss of service, and so their
dependability is a
major concern.
SCOPE
Scope of this online system is in every hostel modular business or hostel systems to manage data &
system as dynamically by web access.
The administrative persons can generate monthly reports by admin login to manage hostel scenario
and future possibilities as access would be easy.
In Future, we can also enhance business possibilities in the current market area.
It can manage hostel inventories online as in web based.
It can enlarge flexibilities in the existing system with web based user interactive interface.
In an future, this system can be extended up to accept the online fee payments as with source of net
banking and also can do analysis on the hosteller mess reviews and payment records of mess.
It can also serve the feedback system to each visitor or guest for rating and review of features of the
hostel.
Feasibility Study:
A feasibility study describes whether or not the proposed system is worthwhile. A short focused
study of hostel management system project report checks
The assessment is based on an outline design of system requirements in terms of Input, processes,
Output fields, programs and procedures. This hostel can be quantified in term of volumes of data
trends, frequency of updating etc. in order to estimate whether the new system will perform
adequately or not. Considering our project if is technically feasible.
It also provide the definition of the problem with the alternative solution and their benefits.
