About IIT

(Well, if you are from IIT-D then you can skip this section about IIT and go right ahead into the next)

Situated in Hauz Khas in Southern Delhi, IIT-Delhi is truly a hub of student activity of all kinds – cultural, literary, sports and of course, academic. Always at the helm of pioneering advances in several fields, IIT-D’s alumni have made a name for them all over the world. No wonder, every alumnus is proud to be called an IIT’ian.

IIT-D has 15 hostels:

  • Kailash, Himadri and New Kailash for girls
  • Nalanda for married students
  • Kumaon, Vindhyanchal, Shivalik, Jwalamukhi, Aravali, Karakoram, Zanskar, Satpura, Girnar, Udaigiri and last, but definitely not the least, Nilgiri for boys.

This page is dedicated to Nilgiri Hostel and all its residents.
