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, with facilities like a gym, a football ground, a hockey ground, a badminton court, a TT table, a cricket ground and the best music room in the entire campus available here, their will to excel combined with an exceptional spirit of teamwork enables them to bring glory in every major event. Be it their impeccable record of annual Gymkhana elections or their recent comprehensive sweep of both illumination and Rangoli trophies, LLR's lions have never failed to shine their mettle when it matters.

LLR's mess is unofficially the best mess in the Institute. LLR's motto "Once a Lajpatian, ever a Lajpatian" is something everyone swears by, be it the highly successful alumni or the current residents.
