Introduction: IIT Delhi

IIT Delhi was established as College of Engineering in 1961 and was renamed to Indian Institute of Technology later in 1963. It is situated at Hauz Khas in South Delhi, which is a landmark place in the colourful and chequered history of the capital. Bounded by Sri Aurobindo Marg on the east, the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus on the west, the NCERT on the south and the outer ring road on the north, the sprawling 320 acre campus is well inside the city, unlike other IIT's. Qutab Minar and Hauz Khas monuments also flank the campus.

As you enter the main gate,you feel the noticeable difference between the hustle-bustle of the big metropolis and the calm environment of the lush-green campus. The conventional crowded, busy Delhi vanishes and what remains is like a suburban paradise. Moving on the main road, you encounter a round about, often with groups of friends lying down on it.
Turning left here would take you to the Girls hostels area viz. Kailash and Himadri while straight or right would lead you to the 'Insti' area and the JEE office respectively.
The girls hostel area is very close to academic block and dean's residence and as far as possible from boy's hostels.
The authorities claim it is just a coincidence but the guys doubt it! But trust me the overwhelming view of the main MS building with its towering 9 floors would compel you to move straight on!
As you walk down the road, to your right you'd see the 'Institue Area ', as it is popularly called,comprising of the MS building, the MZ building, the 6 blocks, the Library andt he Bharti School of Telecommunications and Management.
To the left, parallel to the insti area one can find the Central Workshop and the Textile Engineering Building apart from the popular HFC(Holistic Food Center) and the Cafe Sip 'n' Bite.
