About Campus

IIITA Campus :

The Jhalwa campus includes three Computer Centers with several labs each, lecture halls, a newly built auditorium, electronic library, and a residential campus. Various other facilities are under development.

The NSC complex includes five laboratories, eight computer laboratories, five lecture halls, a conference room, auditorium, library, cafeteria, office space and other facilities. The total covered area is about 25,000 sq. ft. Besides this, there is an open space of 50,000 sq. ft. that is used for parking, lawns and sporting activities.

The new campus has been developed on 100 acres of land at Devghat, Jhalwa, on the outskirts of Allahabad. The architecture aims to transcend established design conventions and make a statement about the similarities between atoms and bits. Instead of the traditional geometric lines, the campus and other buildings have been styled on patterns developed by internationally acclaimed scholar and mathematician, Roger Penrose.

Elements of the new campus? :

Within the Penrose layout for the campus, a central zone has been marked out for the academic core consisting of an administrative building, lecture theater complex, electronic library, computer laboratories and research facilities.

The sun pattern has been chosen for laying out the library and the lecture hall complex. The computer laboratories and the administrative buildings are derived from selected tessellated blocks in the star pattern.

The lecture theater complex has pentagonal lecture halls seating 100 students. Multimedia labs, tutorial rooms, faculty rooms, language labs and meeting rooms are also included. The basement of the building contains the air-conditioning plant and other service machinery.

Also present is an electronic library that provides students with connectivity to the latest technological material through networked workstations. There will be a total of 140 systems distributed over two floors. Reading space is provided at convenient locations.

The central portion has computer labs, while the arms of the building house faculty rooms and classrooms. The building has three levels, with an area of approximately 3820 sq.m. The total covered area in the academic campus is approximately 15,600 sqm. Dholpur stone and rough cast plaster are the two main finishes chosen for the building exteriors.

Sports facilities are located within the main campus, with a 500-seat sports complex.

This infrastructure is proposed to accommodate the needs of the institute for more than a decade.

The students have access to a regular bus service from the Jhalwa campus to central Allahabad (Vigyan Parishad).

The residential campus consists of a mens" hostel with capacity for 2000 students, womens" hostel for 500 students, 40-room air-conditioned guest house and staff residences for senior professors and other staff. Faculty hostels with two-room and one-room units meant for visiting professors are also be provided.

There are separate hostels for men and women, with single rooms (for the senior most batches) and twin sharing rooms. The spacious accommodations are provided with computers, along with 24-hour backup power supply. The hostel mess caters to the students' meals. Facilities for recreation and sports like cricket, football, badminton and table tennis are available with more on the way.
