INFRASTRUCTURE & TRANSPORTATION
  • There are 4 hostels in the campus and being a new institute, hostels are new as well. The campus is running out of Mayurbhanj Complex which was previously the erstwhile summer palace of Mayurbhanj Kings, so I suppose that would explain the scenic beauty and the marvelous campus that IIM Shillong has. Hostel fee is included in the overall fee of the course and there are no other hostel fee.
  • MBA at IIM Shillong is strictly residential program and hence there is no requirement of any PGs. However for guests and parents, you would find various hotels at budget as well as luxury rates in the vicinity of the campus (3 to 4 Km). Taxi (reserved and shares) are always available near the gate of the campus and hence connectivity is never an issue and main market is approximately 4 to 5 Km away only.
  • Food in mess is good (considering the fact that nobody likes mess food, I would not call it great). There is a fixed menu for every week and you would get veg as well as non-veg food, ranging from south Indian to western, easter and north Indian dishes. Also sometimes we get local north-east dishes like Mawphlang burger. The cost of food/mess is also included in college fee and students don't have to pay separately for that. But in case you are not satisfied with what you get in mess, you can order food in campus from KFC, Dominos, some local restaurants etc.
  • Classrooms are aesthetically appealing and being in a hilly area it is perfectly suited for studies. We have latest technology like smart board in our classroom. You need not take notes, whatever teacher writes on smartboard, you get a scanned copy of it automatically in your mailbox. There is also a conference room in campus. The library is enriched with books of all genera from academic, research oriented to novels and magazines. Also our library has 6 terminals of Bloomberg which is extremely handy for any kind of research work. We have 2 separate dining halls for 1st year and 2nd year students. They are neat and well maintained. Wi-Fi and LAN is the heart of the institute and we have 100Mbps LAN and I have personally seen download speed of 8MB/sec. You will never see any Youtube videos buffering and can download 1GB file in 2 to 2.5 minutes. Every student is provided with a room heater for winters. Also every washroom in campus has a geyser installed. We also have a place for bone fire. In terms of sports, we have badminton court, basketball court, volleyball court etc.
