Christened after the eminent freedom fighter, scholar and educationist, the Lala Lajpat Rai Hall of Residence was founded on March 18, 1967. The title of "Sher-e-Punjab" which was bestowed on Lala Lajpat Rai, continues to invoke passion and pride among Lajpatians as they strive to bring similar honour and glory to their hall. Lajpatians seek an opportunity to excel at everything, be it sports, social and cultural activities, academics or pursuit of their own hobbies.
The motto of the hall is "Karmanaiva Hi Sansiddhi", which means one can only get success or achievement by performing his karma. This motto is aimed at inspiring all boarders to pursue their work with excellence and is central to all the pursuits of our hall. The hall aims to inculcate a feeling of togetherness and accomplishment amongst the boarders. LLR's tagline "Once a Lajpatian, ever a Lajpatian" is something everyone swears by, be it the highly successful alumni or the current residents.
