The Campus

Our 66 acres campus, located on the main Gachibowli road (also called the Old Bombay highway) is well connected by bus and is on the route for the proposed metro rail. We are surrounded by many academic and research institutions like the Hyderabad Central University, Indian School of Business (ISB), TCS-CMC, Indian Immunologicals and Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Development Banking (JNIDB), and are minutes away from the bustling HiTech City Center and Lingampally, which are major shopping areas. Lingampally is also the nearest railway station.

Within-campus facilities include a bank extension counter, ATM machine, stationary shop, and laundry services. The campus has been developed quite a bit since the institute was started in 1998. 


The Institute has well-equipped, air-conditioned computer laboratories allocated batch-wise to the students. They contain the latest hardware and software. The average PC-to-student ratio is 1:2. All computers are part of an intranet (1Gbps Backbone), which connects all buildings, including the hostels round the clock. Researchers have 24 hours access to the computational facilities. The students administer their own computer systems. Research centers provide specialized, high-end equipment, as needed in research and development projects.


The Library has a large collection of Reference Books, Text Books, Technical reports, Standards, Literature books and CDROMS. The Library is being managed with fully integrated multi-user Library Management Software. Using this software, cataloguing and circulation services are being automated along with Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) facility.

Digital Library

A digital library is also maintained. It is an online archive of useful software, books and tutorials. Students can download any permitted software from this resource. There are many textbooks and reference books available in the digital format as well. Many lectures have also been recorded and are available online for students use. Most courses maintain an intranet site containing lecture slides and other course material.


IIITH is a residential Institute and it is compulsory for all students to stay on-campus. Three hostels for boys and two for girls are available on-campus with basic facilities. All the hostel rooms are networked and internet enabled.


The institute gives sufficient incentive for everyone to excel in any of the plethora of activities and skills available. Facilities are provided for cricket, volley ball, soccer, basket ball, table tennis, etc. We also have understanding with nearby stadiums for other sports facilities such as badminton, hockey, swimming, etc.

Dining Facilities

Spacious and modern kitchens with steam cooking cater to healthy and nutritious food. Hygienic conditions are maintained. Campus has 4 vegetarian messes (North Mess, South Mess, Mixed Mess and Yuktahar Mess). The students are free to choose any mess of their choice. There is also a canteen which serves snacks, non-veg food and general fast foods. A couple of cafeteria serve juices, milk products and snacks.


Gymnasium facilities are available in hostel with a physical trainer. Apart from the common gym which is open for all residents, a separate mini gym is also provided for girls in the girls hostel.
