IIIT-Surat students protest move to incomplete campus with temporary classrooms | Education News,The Indian Express

Students have now been posting pictures of the waterlogged construction site at Kholvad village in Kamrej taluka of Surat district — with the hashtag IIIT_in_a_shed.

For the new academic year beginning August 8, the Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) at Surat is set to move into its own 28-acre campus — which is still under construction and has temporary metal structures for classrooms.

This has drawn criticism from students who have demanded that the institute, one of “national importance”, continue functioning from its temporary home at the Sardar Vallabhbhai National Institute of Technology (SVNIT) in Surat until construction is complete.

IIIT-Surat has been operating out of SVNIT, its mentor institution, since June 2017. But its memorandum of understanding (MoU) with SVNIT for using its campus ends July 31.

IIIT-Surat’s principal J S Bhat told The Indian Express that what the students called tin sheds were “imported engineering materials” approved by the government.
