Student Hostels at IIT Bombay:
IIT Bombay has 13 hostels for students. Each hostel is an independent entity with its own mess facilities, recreational areas, etc.
Students can also choose to make their own arrangement for accommodation outside the campus.
Student activities are organized through the Students Gymkhana and are held primarily at the Students Activities Centre. There are excellent facilities for sports, including a swimming pool, tennis, badminton and squash courts, and vast playgrounds for field games. Wildlife camps and trekking are popular off-campus activities at IIT Bombay. Various clubs of the gymkhana encourage individual talents like painting, modeling, music, photography, etc.
The facilities for sports are matched by the cultural activities on campus. There are cultural and social clubs, film clubs, classical music societies, debating and drama clubs and a hobbies club.
There are also a few campus publications by the students. "Aksh"(in Hindi). "Technik" (in English), "Tantra" (in Marathi) and "On the move" are magazines containing students views and comments on all aspects of campus life. "Pragati" is a multilingual annual publication of Students' Gymkhana.
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.
