Map and location

IIT Delhi is situated at Hauz Khas in South Delhi, which is a landmark place in the colourful and chequered history of Delhi. Bounded by the Sri Aurobindo Marg on the east, the Jawaharlal Nehru University Complex on the west, the National Council of Educational Research and Training on the south, and the New Ring Road on the north, the Institute campus is flanked by Qutub Minar and the Hauz Khas monuments. Well connected to the major city centres by open and wide roads, the Institute campus is about 19 Km. away from the Delhi Main Railway Station, 14 Km. from the New Delhi Railway Station, 21 Km. from the Inter-State Bus Terminal and 10 Km. from Delhi Airport.

The campus of the Institute extends to an area of 320 acres. With many topographical features, imaginatively laid out with picturesque landscape, numerous buildings of various nature and stature, and clean and wide roads, the campus presents a spectacle of harmony in architecture and natural beauty. The campus area has been divided into four functional zones : (i) Residential zone for students; (ii) Residential zone for the faculty and staff; (iii) Academic zone for academic buildings and workshops; and (iv) Cultural-cum-social and recreational zone for students. The site being longitudinal in shape, the last two zones have been located mid-way between the two residential zones in order to reduce walking distance.

The main academic building accommodates various teaching and research activities. Though each department is a separate entity with a courtyard around, all the departments constitute an integrated complex. Heavy engineering laboratories are placed on the ground floor, light laboratories on the first floor while the tutorial rooms, classrooms and project rooms are located on the second floor. Separate offices have been provided to every member of the teaching staff next to his laboratory. Large lecture theatres with modern amenities and equipment for sound and projection are located in the courtyards between departments for common use. The campus also offers amenities like staff club, hospital, shopping centre, bank, post office, telecom centre, community centre, stadium, playing fields, etc.

The Students Activities Centre provides all facilities for students' extra-curricular and physical development. The central double-storeyed recreation block with a swimming pool and a gymnasium hall offers amenities such as squash courts, hobbies workshops, seminar rooms, music rooms and other multipurpose rooms for reading and indoor games. The amphitheatre constructed in modern style is an added amenity to the centre.
