IIT Bombay is a small township in itself. Consciously developed, the campus has retained and increased its green cover, rich in natural flora and fauna.
The Institute has a great location for an academic environment nestled between Powai and Vihar lakes along with scenic hills adjoining the campus. The Institute is located on a 220 hectares green campus in the north eastern suburbs of Mumbai.
The campus is connected to the city proper, an hour's distance through buses and local trains. However, most facilities are available on campus itself, including two banks, a shopping centre, two excellent schools for children, and a well equipped hospital.
All students and most faculties live on campus, in student hostels and IIT staff quarters. The peaceful atmosphere of the campus belies the full range of activities going on that complement academic life.
