RVIT has become the nodal center of IIT Bombay. IIT Bombay, the second in the chain of IITs, was set up in 1958. It was the first IIT to be set up with foreign assistance. The funds came from UNESCO in roubles from the Soviet Union. In 1961, the Parliament decreed IITs as ‘Institutes of National Importance’. Since then, IIT Bombay has grown from strength to strength to emerge as one of the top technical universities in the world.
Residents at IIT Bombay have the twin advantage of being located at the financial capital of India while enjoying the serene environs of the campus located at Powai, situated in the northern suburbs of Mumbai, in Western India. It is a fully residential institute, with all its students staying on campus. The students are accommodated in 14 hostels with in-house dining and excellent amenities for sports and other recreational facilities.
