IIM Calcutta is extended over 135 acres of verdant land which comprises of seven lakes providing an idyllic backdrop for the sharpest minds in the country to indulge their unconstrained curiosity. It is such a perfectly propitious environment that is also abode to the country’s top notch talents in academia, industry and research.

The Tata Hall consists of 56 grand residential rooms, four suites and three conference rooms. A luxurious dining hall is there which caters to the occupants of Tata Hall. The suites have double rooms while other rooms provide single accommodation. Facilities like Phone, Fax, TV and Internet access are also available here.

The campus also has a post office, few ATMs, a café and medical facilities.

Hostel

It is almost a parallel culture, an experience that takes you out of your comfort zone and exposes you to several experiences. Living by some stringent rules is one of them. Getting to know a host of students from diverse backgrounds at very close quarters, is another. At IIM Calcutta, the idea is to make one as comfortable as possible in this parallel culture.

Within the 3 major hostels, Old Hostel, White Hostel and New Hostel, there is plenty of scope for interaction and developing relations. While the Old Hostel is a co-ed hostel, with separate wings for girls, the White Hostel and New Hostel are both male hostels. All the hostels are equipped with all the facilities of a modern hostel. The newest hostel, which is in the last stage of its completion, will be operational from the next session. The facilities at the newest hostel are of international standards. Spacious rooms with French windows opening onto your own spacious balcony, gives you a feeling of luxury and comfort as soon as you walk in. State of the Art architectural design, cutting edge technology and luxuriant materials combine to form a wonderful new hostel for the students of IIM Calcutta.

Apart from the infrastructural soundness, all the hostels provide sufficient scope for interaction and relationship-building. There are common rooms, games rooms and courts for various sports in all hostels, where the students can relax and cool down after a hectic day of work. There is freedom of movement and students constantly interact with one another. This gives the new students full scope to know their seniors, learn from them, leverage their knowledge and build lasting relations with them. It is also a common sight to find study groups and project groups working away into the night in the hostel common rooms. These interactions play an especially important role in a student’s life during placements and examinations.

Each hostel has a life and culture of its own. There are inter-hostel sports competitions where the culture of each hostel comes out at its brightest. Festivals all celebrated in the hostels throughout the year, whether it be through conducting pujas and yajnas in the hostel courtyard or serving delicious and sumptuous feasts in the mess or through community activities like bursting crackers and flying kites on the hostel rooftop. A common sight during the year is second year students setting up kiosks in the hostel to sell an assortment of things as part of their marketing projects and first year students devouring on the delicious golgappas being sold or purchasing handmade crafts work created by under privileged children.

Hostel life at IIMC is full of vibrance and gives one a chance to relax, unwind and discover oneself constantly through interaction with peers and participating in the cultural, sports and community activities.

Extra - Curricular

Adventure Club was a brainchild of Malli Mastaan Babu ( 39th batch at IIM C), the patron saint of all trekkers. The man who achieved the incredible feat of scaling the highest peaks of the seven continents in 172 days, the fastest so far . Having begun under such able hands the club took it's task seriously and organized treks, hikes and camping trips for the students of IIM-Calcutta during vacations. And also a fair bit of on-campus activities like triathlons, crowd-runs (where a huge group of students jog together) , wall-climbing, etc.

This rich heritage has been given a structure, now the club comprises of three branches -treks team , on-campus team and design team. The number of on campus events have increased like "Tour de joka ", (conducted in association with Tata Steel Adventure Foundation) a biathlon of running and cycling, a wall rappelling workshop and many more.

Choreography Club

The Choreography club of IIM Calcutta brings together students interested in celebrating life through dance. Choreo Club makes its presence felt in each and every function at IIM Calcutta. In addition, the club trains students with no prior dance experience through workshops conducted by professionals. Of the few memorable memories that every student carries forward from IIM Calcutta, the performances by Choreo Club would surely be one among them.

Consulting Club

The Consulting Club, IIM Calcutta is a student-run, corporate-facilitated and faculty-guided student body of IIM Calcutta. It was setup with an objective of benefiting the students' community through consulting events, live industry consulting projects, seminars, workshops and other student activities. Besides organising several national level events every year, it has now taken the lead in forming an International Consulting Consortium which includes consulting clubs from the likes of theKellogg School of Management, UCLA (Anderson School of Management),London Business School (LBS), Peter F. Drucker Graduate School Of Business,University of Western Ontario (Richard Ivey School Of Business) and University of Melbourne (Melbourne Business School), among a host of others.
