For me to be honest, when I took admission in IIIT I had at least a tiny hope the campus size wouldn't be an issue. But when I actually went there, it was quite small. But whatever space they have they have utilized it quite well. Like the building and all, I must say it isn't quite bad. Our college building has mainly 3 blocks, which is impressive. Classrooms, labs, libraries, dining halls and all are average. Wi-Fi is given to all students and teachers. Food reviews will be different for every student. For me mainly there are 2 problems, breakfast isn't heavy and healthy. Second is they don't give us nutritious food, very fewer fruits, and vegetables are provided. Meals costs around 20-35/-. Hostels in our college are quite nice, they have all kind of hostels including single, double, triple and quadruple room accommodations. Where triple and quadruple is for 9,000 per semester, and the double room is for 11,000. Single rooms which are the best is for 20,000.
There are two hostels each for boys and girls. One is an old hostel and the other is the new hostel. In the old hostel, there are sharing rooms for 2 or 3, if one wants to get a two sharing room the hostel fee is around 14,000 INR per semester and if one wants a three sharing room, hostel fee is 10,000 INR per semester. And in the old hostel, washrooms are common. The new hostel rooms are basically an apartment type which has a common room and 4 private rooms and 2 washrooms and a balcony. The hostel fee for the new one costs around 20,000 INR. Both of the hostels don't have ACs. The campus is located at the outskirts of the city, so there are fewer options available for PGs nearby. Near the city, there are PGs available but the student has to travel every day to the college which could take about 2 hours daily for going to and returning from college. The food in the college is fine and every week student needs to buy coupons for the next week. Cost per meal is 25 INR ( for lunch and dinner each). And for breakfast its 10 INR. Wi-Fi quality is good. College infrastructure consists of an academic block, Girls Hostel, Boys hostel and hostel for staffs. There are two libraries. Also, there is a reading room where students can sit and study. The timing of the reading room is up to 8-8:30 at night.
The campus of IIIT Bhubaneswar is in the outskirts of Bhubaneswar and is spread around 50 acres. IIIT Bhubaneswar is a residential college. There are some classrooms which are well equipped with projectors and computers. Students pursuing M.Tech and Ph.D. have a separate block for themselves and all of their classrooms are well equipped with projectors and computers for their daily classes. There are two hostels. One is the older one and the other is the new one. Blocks D to L are the old blocks and P, Q are the new ones. The new hostel has single rooms whereas the old hostel has sharing rooms. The new hostel is one on the costlier side but is much more comfortable than the older one. One can opt for the new hostel from second year only whereas the foreign students are given the new hostel by default. Apart from this, there are a lot of PGs and rented flats available within the radius of 2km. These PGs and hostels are also pretty much affordable and are available at around 5k per month. The fees for the new hostel is around 20k per semester whereas the fees for the old hostel are around 10k per semester only. The food offered in the mess is decent and lunch and dinner cost around Rs. 25 whereas the breakfast costs around Rs. 10 only. The quality of Classrooms, Labs, Libraries, and mess is also nice. The best part about college is the high-speed Wi-Fi which works 24*7 and is accessible to all the students.
