IIT Bombay conducted the much-awaited groundbreaking ceremony of its ambitious hostel project – Project Evergreen – on June 24, 2023.
The project is spearheaded by the IIT Bombay alumni community and its two alumni organizations – IITB Alumni Association (IITBAA) and IITB Heritage Foundation (IITBHF) – to fund, design and build a new 1,100-room world-class Hostel Complex. This hostel complex will comprise Hostel 7, Hostel 8, and a women’s Hostel 21 and will be situated at the existing Hostel 8 location. This modern facility will include additional rooms, spacious courtyards, ergonomically designed study rooms, dining areas, and other globally competitive living facilities that will transform student living at IIT Bombay.
A pleased Prof. Subhasis Chaudhuri, Director, IIT Bombay, said that Project Evergreen drives the Institute’s commitment to providing world-class living facilities for its growing student community. He thanked the Institute’s alumni for their invaluable contribution which will transform the lives of students on campus. He added, “With the support of our passionate alumni, we are confident in realising our mission to create an environment that promotes a well-rounded living experience for our students.”
