IIT Indore is a residential Institute that mandates students of all teaching programs to stay in the Hostels. This is a home away from home where students develop lifelong relationships, camaraderie, and wonderful experiences that give them a different kind of grooming. Many of our alumni inform us that it is in these hostels where they learned life skills that are taking them a long way. At the moment, IIT Indore has six hostels, out of which one is reserved for female residents and other for married students. All hostels are located close to each other, lie amidst the flora and fauna of the campus and have adjacent playgrounds which are always buzzing with physical activity. These are also close to the Academic Pods, which houses all research and undergraduate labs, the backbone of this Institute.

All the Hostels are collectively headed by the Chief Warden, who is assisted by a Senior and a Junior Assistant. Each Hostel is being monitored by a Warden, ably assisted by a Supervisor. In addition, we also have JC Bose Hostel, which houses married research students and staff members. The details are as follows:

Anti-ragging measures
IIT Indore treats ragging as a criminal offence and has zero tolerance for any such activity which amounts to ragging. The Institute has an anti-ragging committee which ensures maintaining a healthy and ragging free environment for students. Students are sensitized periodically on the ill effects and punishments of ragging. Victims are free to report any such matter to the Hostel Warden or any hostel staff and the identity will be kept strictly confidential.


Dining Facilities
The Institute mandates every hostel resident to dine in our Central Dining Facility (Mess). All the students from hostels will have their food in the Central Dining Facility. The unique aspect of IIT Indore is that Dining, Academic Pods, and the Learning Resource Center (Library) are all clubbed together and students can just take a stroll from one building to another. The Central Dining facility is equipped with 3 kitchens to cater to 2500 diners at any point of time. There is a Students’ Dining Committee comprising students who decide the menu and maintains the check on the hygiene, quality and taste of the foods served. This committee reports to the Dining Warden who is in charge of the Central Dining Facility. Quality of food is maintained by taking frequent feedback and addressing complaints. Other than regular dining services, the Central Dining Hall also houses several food kiosks, grocery needs and electronic shops. Night canteen is also available based on the needs and requirements of the students.
