Campus of IIT Bhilai

Transit Campus

Presently, IIT Bhilai is functioning from its transit campus at Government Engineering College (GEC) Raipur. The transit campus of Bhilai situated on Old Dhamtari Road in Raipur has been successfully operational since 2016.

Four storied Block-B of GEC Raipur building has been furnished for academic activities at IIT Bhilai.

Apart from this, IIT has its own hostels for boys and girls provided by GEC Raipur in the campus. The transit campus is about 10 km from the main city of Raipur and is well-connected through public transport to the Railway station, Airport and Raipur City.

  • Airport: Swami Vivekananda Airport in Mana is about 15 km from the transit campus.
  • Train: Raipur Junction railway station is about 13 km from the transit campus.
  • Bus: Inter-state and inter-city bus terminal at Pandri in Raipur is about 12 km from the transit campus.

Permanent Campus

The permanent campus is expected to come up in Bhilai, Durg district of Chhattisgarh.

IIT Bhilai will be situated in the village of Kutelabatta and Sirsa Khurd, Bhilai in approximately 447 acres of land near the Shivnath river, adjoining the steel city of Bhilai.

The proposed campus is expected to be equipped with infrastructure to accommodate 2500 students in the first phase.



The transit campus has facilities and amenities for sustaining the research needs of the academia as well as nurturing the extra-curricular activities undertaken by the students.

The Institute has two high-speed Internet links provided by National Knowledge Network and BSNL respectively. IIT Bhilai is a part of National Knowledge Network (NKN) under which all the national level institutes are connected via the high-speed fibre network.

The hostels are connected through campus-wide LAN and provide Wi-Fi links to students to use. Entire campus of IIT Bhilai is Wi-Fi enabled and students can use the network seamlessly across various facilities.

The academic building houses the central library, various laboratories and workshops which are equipped with state-of-the-art apparatus


There are four laboratories – Computer Centre, Electrical Lab, Physics lab and a Chemistry lab.

The Institute has two computer laboratories. The labs have a total of 64 Dell OptiPlex 9020 MT Desktops with 4 GB RAM and 500 GB hard disks, and six Dell Power Edge R 630 servers.

IIT Bhilai has its computer centre ITIS that stands for – Information Technologies Infrastructure and Services to support the academics affairs and administration at the institute.

It is known as the "NUCLEUS" of IIT Bhilai. ITIS provides gigabit network connectivity to the entire campus. ITIS ensures seamless functioning of all the IT related functions like Network Connectivity and Internet, computer labs, LDAP, conferencing, email services, Technical support, Smart ID Card bio-metric services, and VoIP.

Chemistry lab apparatus includes a vortex mixer, rotary evaporator, UV ozone cleaner and so on.

The lab also supports fume extractors which restore the air purity and hence limit the exposure to hazardous or toxic fumes, vapours or dust.


Workshops have been set up in the main building which support prototyping and building of various projects undertaken by both undergraduate as well as post-graduate students. The workshops play an integral role in the curriculum by providing hands-on training to the students.

These workshops have served as incubation centres for the first automobile car developed by the students of the mechanical engineering department.

  • Digital Fabrication Lab: Equipped with 3D printers and 3D scanners, the Digital fabrication lab caters to the needs of rapid prototyping of plastic parts for various projects. The students learn the basics of designing in the freshman year by courtesy of a course on 3D printing which introduces CAD modelling and gradually builds up to having the students make their own 3D printed projects.
  • Do It Yourself (DIY) Lab: The lab provides hands on training of various manufacturing processes. Prioritizing the safety of the students, the training is carried out using table-top machinery and cold-casting in lieu of the traditional methods. The students are introduced to various machinery including Laser cutters, CNCs and Lathes.
