Bachelor of Science [B.Sc] Reviews

Bachelor of Science [B.Sc], batch of 2020

Currently, there are two hostels i.e, one Boys Hostel and one Girls Hostel. Everyone is necessarily expected to stay on campus. The per year Hostel fees, both for Boys and Girls Hostel, is INR 24,000/-.
The mess is attached to both the hostels. And the food, is better, in terms of variety and quality, as compared to other institutions. The per day charge for the mess is around INR 120/-. It is INR 17000/- for one Semester. The food is a mixture of North India and South India.
Labs and libraries are fully equipped. Still, if you face a shortage you can always complain to Academic Office and things will be sorted out.

  • Infrastructure: International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad is spread over an area of 70 acres and is a plush green campus. It has world class research centers for research in fields such as linguistics, humanities, natural sciences, etc. Because the college only has about 1500 students, the space per student ratio is a big one.
  • The quality of classrooms at IIIT are also state of the art.

  • Housing: There are various hostels for boys and girls at IIIT. The first and second year undergrads live in Double - Occupancy rooms while from the third year onwards students are awarded individual rooms. The rooms are extremely spacious and kept very clean by the housekeeping staff. There are common bathrooms on every floor that have a hot and cold water supply 24*7 all days of the year. The rooms are also equipped with high-speed internet connections (Second year onwards).
  • Food: The mess facilities at IIIT are remarkable. IIIT house for messes, which serve: North Indian, South Indian, North & Sound Indian, and vegan cuisine. There is also a canteen present on campus which is open until late in the night that offers students food and drinks after a long hectic day of work. The messes are managed and kept well. All but one serve 100% veg food.

  • Well about the hostels, they are at par with the academic infrastructure setup here at IIIT. 
  • 2 hostel blocks for girls and boys each, of which 1 is brand new. For the first and second year, the rooms are shared by two and later years, there’s a room for everyone.
  • The mess system is pretty cool, with north and south Indian messes, which sensitively understands the needs and tastes of people from all over the country.
  • There’s also a combined mess and in all, there are 4 messes, which serve tasty and nutritious food. Again the managing of the messes utilises a self-developed IT portal where you can set your default mess, and based on a weekly menu change preferences before the meals. 
  • All the canteens are equally popular with students. Not very critical, yet worth a mention is that there are no power cuts on the campus anytime, and other hostel facilities like hot water and security are all correctly in place.
