Policies and Process for Evaluations

Host University

IIT Bombay has a single campus in Powai, Mumbai. All the Departments are housed within the campus. IIT Bombay is a small township in itself. Consciously developed, the campus has retained and increased its green cover, rich in natural flora and fauna. The campus is connected to the city proper, an hour's distance through buses and local trains. However, most facilities are available on campus itself, including a bank, a shopping centre, two excellent schools for children, and a well equipped hospital. All students and most faculty live on campus, in student hostels and IIT staff quarters. The peaceful atmosphere of the campus belies the full range of activities going on that complement academic life.
