College Infrastructure
Necessary Infrastructure is present though cleanliness and hygiene is a little below average. No facilities like Wifi and smart boards are provided but they aren't really required for better learning of Architecture. Air Conditioned Lecture halls and spacious studios are present. The Canteen is not great in terms of food quality and hygiene but the location of the college provides many alternatives for places to eat.
Academics
Sir JJ College of Architecture being one of the top 3 institutes for Architectural studies in india and the oldest Architecture college in Asia has great standards of learning and teaching. The curriculum is set by Mumbai University. The study makes you job ready and there's an entire semester for interning at Architecture firms too.
Placements
100% placement. Most architects are paid really well. Students usually get placed at decent architecture firms and eventually open their own firms. I do not know what the highest salary package offered is. The college only offers one course so it went to a Bachelors in Architecture student only. The college is supportive in terms of helping one find a job.
Value-for-money
Fee varies from 6k to 20k depending on quota. One definitely gets their money's worth.
Campus Life
The campus is in the heart of Mumbai and well spaced in comparison to other Mumbai colleges. Best features being able to study in a world heritage building and learn from what we see from the architecture around us. The staff is mainly supportive but sometimes don't understand student emotions. The location is AMAZING. Campus is overall safe and there are multiple hospitals within walking radius

College Infrastructure
The campus is beautiful but usually unkempt. Although the studios and lecture halls are spacious and roomy allowing a lot of sunlight in. The Library is the best feature of the college and contains literally any Architecture book you can imagine. Food is not a 100% hygienic. There are no proper courts for sports, they are usually played once a year during fest on the common field that is shared by both the Arts and Architecture departments.
Academics
Curriculum and projects are intensive but engaging and overall learning experience along with teaching style and remarks are satisfactory. Of not recent, the curriculum involves all necessary developments of the field. The syllabus and some extra participation makes you job ready.
Placements
No in campus placements but there are several opportunities for many. Placements aren't guaranteed and you have to work you way to it but the college provides the necessary background for getting hired by companies.
Value-for-money
Cost per year is reasonable since it is a government college. We sure get our money's worth and sometimes can extract more than that.
Campus Life
Campus is not too big and lacks good infrastructure. The college is at advantage because it's at a prime location (near CST). Teachers and support staff are friendly and helpful. There is a hospital right behind in case of emergencies. Canteens and stationery shops are also very close.
Anything Else
Experience at this college has been good overall. It has been a roller coaster ride academically, mostly being good. The college has a great legacy and name and asks for its students to live up to its standards which is only fair.

Campus being the best part of the college comprises 2 buildings for the various departments and workshops. Talking about the classes and the studios where most of the academic learning takes place, are also good, and you do not need to ask for more. The things not functional are replaced frequently, so no issues about the maintenance of infrastructure. The environment of the library certainly makes you feel like studying there. And the interesting part is that a lot a visiting faculties are invited at regular times to take lectures, in their area of expertise. The head-of-departments, are the permanent faculties, and needless to mention about their experience. 20-25 architecture firms come to the campus every year. The students also get good 5th year internship at these firms, and then a 6 month thesis follows. The purpose of the internship is thorough practical knowledge, before you actually become an architect.

This college being the Pioneer in Architecture has through these year not lost its essence ... it still stand amongst the top architecture institutes in the country.... The college library holds a vast variety of books covering all the subjects.... be it for design, landscaping, construction or even magazines and other architectural periodicals.....
