The Student branch, one of the first branches of the Bombay YMCA, is a hub of year round activity, with hostelites pitching in to provide a family atmosphere. Numerous programmes conducted for the hostelites also adds to the flavour of the branch, as a Centre bursting with activity.
The Library at the branch has been ever popular and has catered to the needs of the students residing there, as also the members who use the facilities.
With the resumption of use of the ground floor hall, the number of facilities at the branch have increased.
