IIT Mandi is now first among the new IITs to have academic and residential facilities on its main campus at Kamand. In a historic move, 108 B.Tech IInd yr students shifted to their new hostels on September 23, 2012.
The Dining Hall was formally inaugurated by the warden of the Hostel, Dr. Venkat Krishnan in the presence of the Director, faculty, staff and students. A table tennis room inside the building and the kitchen were also inaugurated next by students, Apoorva Bhatia, Runa Barik, Reena Singh and Chamundeswar. The inauguration was followed by the first lunch prepared in the kitchen of the new hostel.
The classes of this batch are now taking place in the newly setup class-rooms and laboratories on the main campus itself.
