Each hostel consists of 8 spacious dormitories with all sanitary facilities accommodating 18 to 21 students in each of them. The toilet and bathroom blocks are regularly cleaned and disinfected by the cleaning staffs while the students are too educated to maintain cleanliness of their respective living spaces.

Classes are conducted mostly in tutorial settings with the application of the cooperative learning structure. Often study and discussion take place in pairs, small groups and large groups to facilitate deeper understanding on the concepts of different subjects. The trainees use flap chairs instead of benches and tables. Combined classes are conducted in halls or open air classrooms (large roofs with no walls). NETTC has 2 such open-air classrooms and 12 classrooms and an assembly hall for its trainees.
Games & Sports

As outdoor games the students mostly play football, volleyball, cricket and badminton on Sundays. They often play cooperative games as a part of their training. Owing to limited time as well as their heavy course curriculum they avail almost no opportunity for sports.
