Student and Hostel life|
Medical students of Chengalpattu Medical College are fondly called "CHEMCO's". The biggest boon of CHEMCO's is the limited number(50) of students in each batch. This has ensured close unity among fellow batch-mates and a very good teacher:student ratio. It has encouraged individual attention and increased interaction between the teachers and the students.The college now boasts of a 100 strong “freshers” student population from the year 2012-13.
The hostel life is peaceful with vast expanses of greenery surrounding the hostels, providing the right atmosphere for grooming an ideal medical graduate. Four hostels accommodate the students, with 2 exclusive hostels for the girls. The Under-graduates and Post-graduates have separate hostels, with mess facilities. The much needed recreation for the CHEMCO's is provided by three large cricket grounds, a football pitch, a basketball court, a badminton court, a volleyball and throw-ball arena, and the gymnasium.
The college day and hostel day functions are intra-college events celebrated with zest and zeal annually.

The foundation for Chemvibes had been laid in 2003, which latter on evolved into its current form - a 30 page booklet - brought out yearly. The first Chemvibes newsletter was released in April 2007. Currently the 4th volume of the Chemvibes is brought out by the magazine committee of the college.
