Yes college have all the necessary facilities. Internet facility, labs, libraries, all are well maintained. Hostels are well maintained and mess food is also hygienic. Though many don't like the taste of mess food.
Academics
Quality of study is ok but curriculum is little outdated and not upto the market requirements. The processes which we are taught are mostly primitive and their current practical applications are not taught in classrooms.
Placements
Placements are really good mainly for IT. Core companies that come for production students are less compared to its strength but most students get their placements in IT sector with very high package.
Value-for-money
College fees is less than many other colleges and the worth we get out of it is worth paying it.
Campus Life
Campus life is awesome here at iitr. It is having sports complex, swimming pool, big grounds and most beautiful james thomason building.

College Infrastructure
The campus is next to Guindy national park. It is in flora and the fauna mostly consists of deers and dogs. Many sporting activities are there. The city is near to campus. The campus has few old buildings but they are equipped with all facilities. New buildings have first class facilities. There are facilities for a lot of research.
Academics
Finest in the country. The academics are slightly tough but it's worth it. There is a lot of focus on courses. Attendance is slightly strict. One has to maintain 85%. But the quality is the best one can get.
Placements
Best placements. Obviously same as other IITs. A lot offers are made from top companies. 900 -1000 people get placed every year. Jobs are mostly in computer science domain. A lot of core companies do come for placements.
Value-for-money
The government gives a lot of subsidies. The fee has been hiked compared to the previous fee. But compared to other private colleges or universities, it is the best.
Campus Life
There are lot of activities to do in the campus. Sports, music, dance, coding, start-ups and a lot. You are literally living in a forest. The cycle ride in the campus is awesome.

I am doing 5 year Integrated MSc Physics. Here the physics department has many labs but most of them are old. Labs can be better. Curriculum is updated and every professor is focused for students well being.
Placements
In the collage the placement records are pretty good. In my brach we don't have any core companies hiring through campus selection. So students either go for non core jobs or they go for higher education.
Value-for-money
The cost per year is close to 3 lakhs (including the hostel and food fees).
Campus Life
There are alot of things to do in the collage. Just worry about getting in here, you will enjoy no matter what.

In IIT Roorkee all facilities are good . Like as very good internet speed of wifi as well as hostels. Labs are fully updated. All hostels have individual mess in which they provide lunch , dinner as well as breakfast. Breakfast is very good and includes a lot of items. Sports facilities are also very good in IIT Roorkee. Al types of sports are present there.
Academics
In 1st year academic is more boring dur to English , psychology and environmental study. In IIT Roorkee branch change policy is also available at the end of 1st semester. The academic competition is more high than other IITs . There is lectures , tutorials and practical.
Placements
Being a IIT, IIT Roorkee placement is very good and about 💯 placement. Highest package in this year is 1.54 crore to 3 students. One from cse , 2nd from electronic communication and 3rd from engineering physics. In IIT Roorkee more students focus on coding. So the coding environment in IIT Roorkee is very high. Avg package is about 14 lakh.
Value-for-money
One year fee is about 2 lakh (tution)+ 65 thousand (hostel+mess+other ) . Total- 265000 pa. I fell that my fees is not waste because here is more expensive equipment that are available very easily. Library's facilities is also very good and expensive.
Campus Life
Campus Life is very good in IIT Roorkee. There are many groups cultural as well as technical. In groups we learn more things and enjoy a lot of. Some professor are bad but a lot of professors are very supportive they tried that all students got internship in a good company. Location is not much good because nearest airport is about 190 km . But for tourism this iit is very good . Students go on mountains for tour.
Anything Else
I experienced that student think before JEE that if he got IIT then he will not be study but this is purely wrong.

IIT Roorkee possesses one of the best infrastructures in the country. Never has any students & alumnis faced lack of any necessity. Hostels, sports centres, labs of respective departments etc, all of have made our stay here the best. Special mention to our library has a top class environment & computers, e-books, e-journals facilities to promote researches & studies. Known for highest internet speed, WiFi exist in entire campus to enable an easy stay for fellow students.
Academics
My branch is production & industrial eng. the branch curriculum might be a little obsolete but our professors ensures they capture the interest of pupils because of which I really enjoy the courses of my branch. The curriculum is updated as per the latest developments in the field. At present as a first yearite it's difficult to say that we are ready for a job or not, but the quality of education surely gives me a belief that it's the most perfect way to prepare a juvenile for a job.
Placements
Well for IITs if you want placement there are more than 90% chances that you will get it and is higher than other colleges. Three of students get Rs 1.54 Cr from electronics, computer science and engineering and physics stream. The campus is very supportive and pleasant for placement process. Average salary is about 13,20,000.
Value-for-money
Being a government college it must be value for money but we all know b.tech. cost alot. Fee charged per semester(first year) tution fee - 1,00,000.00 , hostel and mess fee - 32,500.00 . You oull also get full tution fee waiver if you belong to sc/st caste or having financial issues and partial fee waiver is also available which is quite affordable and worthy.
Campus Life
College campus overflows with opportunities in every field one wants to engage in. Cultural groups include choreography, music section, debating society, dramatics, literary & sci-fi magazine groups official media body etc give a real feel of how these activities function in real life apart from that Data science groups, groups for competitive coding and web development exists to learn apart from course curriculum as per one's interest to develop the requisite skill set. Best campus life.

I am a prefinal year chemical engineering undergradute student. The cirriculum here is good, covering the depths pf research and innovative expects. Students are also given proper lab and industral exposures and labs.
Placements
The training and placement office do well but can do even better when compared to several sister IITs. One of the drawback in terms of placement is its location which is a hindrance for many officials to take on campus interviews.

IITR has one of best campuses in India. Labs of IITR have almost all the equipment required to carry out high quality research. Apart from the facility required for experimental research, IITR also has softwares and tools for theoretical research.
Academics
I am doing PhD in the department of chemical engineering as I wish to pursue a career in teaching in some reputed Institute. The department has experienced professors with both theoretical and experimental background.
Placements
Though the placements for B.Tech. graduates are good, the percentage is not satisfactory for M.Tech. and PhD students. Particularly for PhD, few reputed colleges visit IITR for placement and offer jobs to certain deserving scholars.

I am fourth year now, and the past three years of my life have been best for me. The Campus The campus is astonishing with James Thomson building (Main or Admin building) being a cherry top. Imagine living in a lush green environment with no pollution air. This is how living at this place is like. The college provides you with the best of sports facilities (Yes, the best. Believe me, I have been to other IITs for Inter-IIT.) and best of coaches. Recently, IITR just missed the Inter-IIT championship to IITK by merely half a point. Academics The place is IIT itself, so there shouldn't be any doubt on the quality of education this place provides. It has 21 academic departments covering engineering, applied sciences, humanities & social sciences, and management programmes, 3 academic centre, 1 centres of excellence, 4 academic service centres and 3 supporting units. Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India, presented the Charter in November 1949 elevating the erstwhile college to the First Engineering University of Independent India, which lead to establishment of IITKGP. Co-curricular There are many co-curricular activity clubs for students. They are all supervised by a faculty adviser, who, at times might be a pain to deal with. But again it's about you skills and lets you learn how to tackle your annoying bosses in future. Most of the clubs are pro active and keep on organizing workshops and events for the student. One such club is the Cinema Club, which actively premiers recent Bollywood/Hollywood movies, thus solving your problems about theater. History The Roorkee College was established in 1847 AD as the First Engineering College in the British Empire. The College was renamed as The Thomason College of Civil Engineering in 1854. On the 21st September 2001, the University was declared an institute of national importance, by passing a bill in the parliament, changing its status from University of Roorkee to Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee. Multi Activity Centre A new Multi Activity Centre has been opened in the campus for different activities. It has got auditoriums, OAT, Cinema Theater, Entertainment Block, Shops, Food Courts etc. So, you get a mall in campus itself, if not in the town. (Cinema Theater, Entertainment Block, Shops, Food Courts etc. are not presently available, but the space has been sanctioned, and we look forward to use them soon.) LAN I have seen may of my friends and mates posting about IITR providing the fastest LAN in all IITs. I don't know if its true or not, but a download speed or around 45 Mbps is sizzling fast. Also, all the hostels are now equiped with high speed LAN. Previously, only the newly made hostels (in 2008) had LAN, rest had poor WiFi connections. These WiFi connections were made way back in 2001, and had a decent speed considering that time. Politics Elections are held every year in the campus for the post ranging from wing senator, to college president.The format of elections have been changed, increasing the competition for candidates. You will get to taste the real politics during this time. And obviously, politics is dirty. 11 to 6 Restriction Their is a restriction on unmarried female students to rest in their hostels after 11 PM till 6 AM. It is because the campus entertains entrance of locals into the campus due to some documents signed at the establishment of institute (this is what we have known). It has been asked to girls, if the limit was further to be extended, and the majority denied. Due to this restriction, problem is faced during some campus event or festival, and you don't get to celebrate birthday with your friends from other hostels. Food Accepted. Food at IITR has not been very impressive. The first year hostel mess serves you with the worst food. But we also have very good messes like the Govind Bhawan mess. The campus has lately introduced non-veg diet in the mess. For which you have to buy coupon separately, and sit separately from the other vegetarian diet students. This becomes pretty awkward. Management Management of the campus it not the best you can find. But it is improving gradually. There is a way for things to get done inside the campus, equally lengthy as any other government office. But they are now making processes simpler at both ends. Again, you need to be smart and clever to get something new done in the campus. Conclusion Every place has its own pros and cons. Its your prospect how you deal with them. Me and all everyone I know at this campus is very proud to be a part of such a great Institute. In my personal opinion, there would be no regrets and you will have a great time if you get to get here. You will end up being a better human and having equally good friends.

Placements were good as always with 100% placements, but the highest and lowest salaries were not disclosed by the placement cell of IIT. Companies like Snapdeal, Bidgley, Microsoft, and Goldman Sachs visited the campus. Internships were also offered to almost all the students of the department. I have heard of a stipend of 2 lacs per month, which was the highest here. Infrastructure : We have Wi-Fi in all the common areas. And a LAN facility is available in the hostel rooms from 6 AM to 1 AM. But we have a limited use of Internet, which is 10GB per week. We have a full equipped 24hr working hospital. The labs and classrooms are world-class and fully air-conditioned with well-equipped features for projecting slides or playing the video lectures. The sports, games and co-curricular activities are given a lot of importance here, and the canteen food and hostel rooms are good. No-infrastructure related issues here. Faculty : The faculty members at IITD are very good. They are super knowledgeable and well-qualified. All kinds of teaching methods like projecting slides, playing videos and writing on boards are used. But, the industry exposure is little less than expected. The curriculum is very well-planned and is very useful for the overall development of a student. Other Details : The annual technical and cultural fests here are splendid. In the technical fest "Tryst", world class professors and technicians are invited. And the cultural fest "Rendezvous" is the biggest college fest in north India, with many stars like Vishal and Shekhar, Shankar Ehsaan Loy, Arijit Singh performing in the fest in the last few years.

A great infrastructure with almost every single facility one can imagine on campus. A nearly 10 mbps internet 24x7, green lush campus and all sports facilities, this campus is a dreamland in itself. Coming to the placement, an IIT off course is known for its top notch placements, however, if low on grades one can end up at the other side of the barn. Industrial exposure is satisfactory one can say, as it has almost all facilities and instruments for each and every field of technology. The thing to notice though is, updating these techniques is still a problem and machinery mostly is worn out. Faculty quality disappoints. The teachers are researchers not teachers. They have vast field experience but doesn’t have the quality to explain it. With college facilities, the hostel life is amazing. There is environment for every single thing and opportunities to create new. The quality of the students is best in India kudos to the selection procedure. The hostels are clean and highly spacious with lawns and have all basic amenities. With rising fees year after year, it is slowly getting out of reach for lower middle class, but loans are helpful. As Roorkee is suburban area, not much outside campus to boast about. Overall, one can say that it’s a great place for one to become something of importance; the right direction has to be chosen. You have all the gear brah! Just score!

I belong to a metro city but still I don't find Roorkee as a boring place as such. Yes, at times you might be get a little annoyed by not having huge mall to go for shopping or hang-outs, but then you have almost all the brands available in the market, which is just next to the campus. The campus is astonishing with James Thomson building (Main or Admin building) being a cherry top. The college provides you with the best of sports facilities (Yes, the best)

I found college really amazing, students are multi-talented, not only academic-centric but represent major sections of Society. College is also awesome, since it is in more of development mode so you you will get more opportunities to participate in betterment of college and get exposure to many real life problems, which will help you become a better person with good management skills.

Friends and people here are helpful and have good nature and that's what made my life so enjoyable here. Also the technical and cultural fest are also interesting and worthy to attend. Mess food is decent but no so good. Hostels rooms are big but being one of the oldest college the hostels need repairing as they can fall anytime. Regarding the money, here life is quite affordable as most of the facilities like internet and sport facilities are free of cost as government is paying for you.

Overall the college is awesome but industry exposure and faculty is not so good. For industry exposure more interactive sessions with the prominent industrialist and businessmen can help in this direction and for professor being open minded and helpful can help a lot to student. Placement are good but for the higher CGPA students. So, some reforms are required to help lower CGPA and other students who are not so intelligent to keep up with the competition. College life is awesome and the different groups for different activities are a real bliss. It will definitely change your life both personally and professionally.

As soon as you land in IIT Roorkee you will notice 2 things for sure one is Main building and other is Central library. Till now I have found the industry exposure is not so good but if some initiative is done by administration then it will definitely help the student. Late night studies and parties are the best things to enjoy in college. Placements can be better if more companies are allowed to enter in campus. Unlimited internet and good sanitation facilities are some provided by college hostel. Professors are good but interaction is less and they consider everyone intelligent so no elaboration is provided to any topic. Student crowd is best and life here is affordable as most of the facility is provided by government.

Academics in IIT Roorkee has an explicit structure. Everything here is properly arranged. The first years and third years have their lectures in the morning whereas the second and fourth years have lectures in the afternoon but again this may differ from branch to branch. The other half is for tutorials and practicals. Lectures and tutorials go on for an hour whereas practicals may be of 2/3 hrs. Exams are divided in two sets: Mid-sems and End-sems. It becomes excruciating during the exam time as it goes on one after the other with only sunday as a gap. Assignments are divided on a weekly basis and discussed in the tutorial classes. The quality of teaching here is above average on an overall basis. Some of the departments here have excellent teachers with a lot of experience. Most of the teachers prefer to teach on boards but some use projectors as well. Even an online moodle is used by some of them for conducting exams and stuff. There is also a system for the final evaluation of teachers at the end of every semester so that the quality of teachers is maintained. In a nutshell, the experience in learning here is cool and students are inspired to carry out there academics well.

IIT Roorkee is known for its history and legacy. The campus is astonishing with James Thomson building (Main or Admin building) being a cherry top. Imagine living in a lush green environment with no pollution air. This is how living at this place is like. The college provides you with the best of sports facilities (Yes, the best. Believe me, I have been to other IITs for Inter-IIT.) and best of coaches. Recently, IITR just missed the Inter-IIT championship to IITK by merely half a point. Academics The place is IIT itself, so there shouldn't be any doubt on the quality of education this place provides. It has 21 academic departments covering engineering, applied sciences, humanities & social sciences, and management programmes, 3 academic centre, 1 centres of excellence, 4 academic service centres and 3 supporting units. Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India, presented the Charter in November 1949 elevating the erstwhile college to the First Engineering University of Independent India, which lead to establishment of IITKGP. Not only this there are many co-curricular activity clubs for students. They are all supervised by a faculty adviser, who, at times might be a pain to deal with. But again it's about you skills and lets you learn how to tackle your annoying bosses in future. Most of the clubs are proactive and keep on organizing workshops and events for the student. One such club is the Cinema Club, which actively premiers recent Bollywood/Hollywood movies, thus solving your problems about theater. LAN I have seen may of my friends and mates posting about IITR providing the fastest LAN in all IITs. I don't know if its true or not, but a download speed or around 45 Mbps is sizzling fast. Also, all the hostels are now equipped with high speed LAN. Every place has its own pros and cons. Its your prospect how you deal with them. Me and all everyone I know at this campus is very proud to be a part of such a great Institute. In my personal opinion, there would be no regrets and you will have a great time if you get to get here. You will end up being a better human and having equally good friends.

Being in IIT Roorkee is one of the best thing which happened to me in my life. It add new dimension in my life as have really good exposure in almost every different field and at deep level. You name it and we have pros in that field and all the seniors are so generous and helpful you can learn that too. College campus also have some of the best hangout places and one wonderful library in which almost every book is available. Hill stations are also nearby so we can also go there in a weekend. Placement Scenario is very good many companies come and almost 95% placement ratio. Overall, it has been a wonderful journey for me. I would recommend you to talk to a person if you are opting for this college to get more insights.

Good Hostel facilities with one of the largest library and all the flush green campus are some worth mentioning that IIT Roorkee provide. For better industry exposure guest lecture exclusively for the branch should be there and some famous industrialist can be called. Super smart friends and the college's technical as well as cultural fest are some which make my college life enjoyable. Placements are not so good but overall it is decent but some more efforts to call startups and new companies will help in better results. Hostels have all the basic facilities like regular cleaning of bathroom and aqua-guards for pure drinking water, 24-hour internet (unlimited) and playing ground and indoor games room. Professors here are full of knowledge but they are not able to deliver it to the audience and mostly they are busy with their project and research work. So it's better if they teach like they are teaching a kid with no background knowledge and not like they are IITians so they must have knowledge of this. As we all know in IIT students came from different background, from rural to metro cities we have all types of students and thus we came to know each other's culture and thus have unity in diversity. Finally, if you are from family with low income but you are bright then IIT provides you with the scholarship which I think is one of the best thing it is doing and also the fees is affordable by the facilities they are providing you.

My experience at iitroorke is amazing. It has been just 7 months for me to join this prestigious institute after clearing jee advanced. These 7 months have been the best time of my life till now. I have enjoyed a lot in these months. Classes are regularly held according to the particular fixed time table. Mass bunks are not allowed. Level of academics here is good. Practicals and turorials along with lectures are held regularly. Apart from academics,IITR also excels in sports and other extra-curriculum. The sports facilities are one of the very best amongst all IITs with an Olympic size swimming pool,proper courts for baskey,volley and racquet sports(TT,Baddy,Squash &Tennis) as well as separate fields for cricket,football and hockey and a fantastic all-purpose gym.Alongwith sports,IITR has student groups dedicated to coding,web designing,dramatics,music,dance, quizzing,debating and many others.With such diverse fields of interest among the IITR students,one is sure to find his/her mojo. The best thing about IITR is its senior-junior culture.Anything you want to learn,any help you need your seniors will always be there for you.Anytime you meet a senior,you just have to ask for a chapo and you will definitely get it (Our Seniors never refuse,you just have to ask ).This culture is passed on from one batch to another ensuring that every student who is enthusiastic and dedicated enough always gets a chance to prosper and has the necessary help needed to suceed.cessary help needed to suceed.
