The campus also has a science park to support industry-oriented research activities. The classrooms and the laboratory facilities of the 1st and 2nd-year students are fully functional on the new campus. However, the laboratory facilities of the 3rd and 4th-year students will be active by the end of December 2016.

IIT Bhubaneswar is the first one to set up a separate marine campus in 2011 for conducting research in rising sea levels, ecology, disaster management, marine ecosystems, fishery development, and other areas. This campus, which will be a part of the School of Earth, Ocean, and Environment Sciences, will be set up near Chilka lake. It will have educational facilities for undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Several other universities and research institutions are either present or being established in the vicinity, including AIIMS Bhubaneswar, NISER, IIIT, XIMB and the Institute of Physics.

Students Gymkhana, IIT Bhubaneswar

The Students’ Gymkhana is a student body, fostering all student activities at IIT Bhubaneswar and bridging the gap between the students and the authorities. From its genesis in the year 2010, it seeks to cultivate various qualitative approaches amongst students to master an enhanced life. The Students’ Gymkhana is the nucleus of the numerous extra-curricular, technical and co-curricular activities held in IIT Bhubaneswar spanning activities of different genres of sports, cultural and technical fields. It plays a cardinal role in cultivating and nurturing their extra-curricular talents here by encouraging their participation in a number of contrasting events. Gymkhana works towards an aim to bring all round development in the students through their active role in extra-curricular activities to supplement education and advancing the general welfare of our students. The hierarchy of Students’ Gymkhana comprises the President, Students’ Senate, an elected representative body and the elected executives: the Vice President, General Secretary Socio-Cultural Council, General Secretary Science and Technology Council, General Secretary Sports Council. The Senate lays down the general guideline for the functions of the executives and their associated councils. General Elections are held every year during spring for various offices of powers. The elections are presided over by an election commissioner. The Gymkhana Elections and its healthy functioning are done in accordance to the Gymkhana Constitution.

Green Field Campus

The horticulture activity was started in 2015 to create the IIT Bhubaneswar campus with full of greenery and more vibrant, including exotic and indigenous deciduous and coniferous trees and plants (long-life tall trees, flower and medicinal trees, fruit trees, palm and pine trees). The members of the board of governors inaugurated the first phase of plantation project at our new campus by planting the first saplings (mahogany and gulmohar plants) around sports ground area on 10 July 2015. For the next-five plan, the main focus of the centre for horticulture is to create native landscaping in newly constructed areas and near buildings with lush green gardens adorned with ornamental and medicinal plants that maintain the clean and healthy environment for the students and residents of the campus. IIT Bhubaneswar believes that nurturing nature is the best way to promote creativity and increasing the amount of landscaping and greenery in the campus can provide a positive effect on mental and physical health. The plants and trees will be chosen such that to create the healthy echo-system for attracting the exotic and migratory birds. In order to achieve sustainability, the centre primarily focus on the building up rooftop rainwater harvesting and surface rainwater harvesting infrastructure and setting up a waste management system and wastewater recycling plant, in the five year plan 2015-2020. Autonomous water irrigation system will be set up in the campus to saving both water and expenditures. The campus is strict about using only organic fertilizers. The centre also focuses on setting up a nursery gardens and green parks in our campus and also providing the tree name tags including the botanical name, English, Hindi, and Odia name.
