IIT Bombay’s newly upgraded Hostel 5 (H5) with modern, improved facilities was inaugurated on July 22, 2022.
This first-of-its-kind renovation project – a joint initiative between IIT Bombay, IIT Bombay Alumni Association (IITBAA), and IIT Bombay Heritage Foundation – was spearheaded and driven entirely by alumni members Mr. AjitJawle (Civil Engineering, 1977), Mr. Suhas Mehta (Civil Engineering, 1983), Mr. Nitin Doshi (Civil Engineering, 1979), Mr. NandkishoreNemade (Chemical Engineering, 1982), and Mr. Dhananjay Saheba (Electrical Engineering, 1977).
Through their tireless efforts, H5’s alumni raised funds and implemented the hostel’s refurbishment in June 2021. A year later, Hostel 5 today boasts freshly painted walls, air-conditioned study rooms, and additional restroom facilities, among other amenities, to ensure a holistic living environment for our present and future students.
