The teaching is entirely interactive and student-centred. The lectures are supported by students' full participation in case studies, group discussions, project assignments and field-trips. Apart from these, audio-visual aid, charts, models, multimedia, projectors, etc are used to make teaching and learning more interesting, effective and purposeful.

Further; the faculty members are reminded time and again to make full use of notions like 'educare' and 'edutainment'.

Hostel Facility

Pentagon College has separate hostels for boy students and girl students respectively which have good and congenial environment for both accomodation and study. The hostels are, probably, the best college hostels in Nepal as regards to facilities, discipline, care and comfort. Each hostel is card and supervised by a veteran and strict warden (boys' hostel by  male warden and girls' hostel by a female warden), quite capable of dealing with the minds of adolescents. Further, we provide them an atmosphere of developing socially good behaviour and feeling of self realisation. Furthermore, the food served to them as meal is prepared, considering the individual's interest and keeping their health.

Only the students who are permitted to seek admission to academic courses can apply for acconodation to be alloted on the basis of merit and locality. However, the preference is given to those who hail from outside Kathmandu Valley and may face the problem of being accommodated.
