Reviews on Infra/Hostels of National Institute of Technology, [NIT] Durgapur

Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] Reviews

Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech], batch of 2021

There are in total 9 hostels for boys and 4 hostels for girls. The hostel fees (including mess fees) is nearly about 3-3.5k per month.

There are many PGs outside the college campus available for the students.

The food in the hostel is mediocre (not too good, not too bad). There are various canteens available inside the college campus.

The infrastructure is in the developing stage, some new high rise buildings are in construction stage which, after completion will improve the external beauty of the college.

Classrooms of the new buildings are in awesome condition but the classrooms of the old buildings are in miserable conditions which need improvement.

Central library is there inside the campus with over 1 lakhs of books inside the library.

Wifi and common rooms with TVs are the facilities available in every hostel.


Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] (Civil Engineering), batch of 2018

Smart boards and projectors are recently installed in all classes, but almost all professors restrain themselves from using it for reasons unknown to me. The library is a little out of sorts; sometimes important books are not available. There is an adequate number of hostels and construction of new girls' hostel is recently finished and that of boys' hostel going on scheduled to be finished within one year. Apart from hostel foods, there are some canteens and restaurants within college premises who provide reasonably good food at affordable price.

Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] (Agricultural Engineering), batch of 2017
  • There are 12 hostel and 2 upcoming hostel present in National Institute of Technology.
  • The hostel fees are Rs. 3,000 per month.
  • The food cost is included in hostel fees. But the food is not so good. 
  • The classroom condition is very bad, labs are best, library and dining hall is good.
  • The internet speed of institute broadband is 100 MBps and it is available for all students.
