Social Atmosphere

Majority of the students are from Andhra Pradesh. Puducherry and Andaman students also account for a large percentage of the crowd, since they qualify as home state students. As it is a newly opened college, the entire strength is well below thousand

College Infrastructure

IT Puducherry doesn't really 'own' anything yet, so it's perhaps too early to comment on the infrastructure. As of now, the college is being run in the Government Arts College, which is pretty small. Even in that, they are allotted only one tiny block having two floors. This means that the entire institute exists only on eight rooms! The facilities are quite shabby as well; the computer lab has about 30 computers, some of which are quite moody. The library is really minuscule, and has a pathetically low number of books. Students have to go to the nearby polytechnic college for their practicals, and even those labs are not up to the mark.
