In night, the dazzling lights of LHC add a beautiful contrast to the night sky.

Open Air Theaters are not a new concept. But the one here in IIT is unique in its own way! With a massive audience capacity of 8000, OAT resembles no less than Sunburn during IITs annual fest Rendezvous.

This is the most famous building in the campus, rich with years of history! Its roof is an architectural masterpiece; a parabolic hyperboloid made with utmost perfection! It has a seating capacity for more than 800 audience members and uniquely designed interior to make sure appropriate view and sounding to each and every corner of the hall!

4. Multi Storey Building (MS)
One of the oldest buildings of the campus, MS truly signifies the height and glory of the institute. It is a unique combination of modern architecture, while preserving an ancient touch in its layout. From its roof, you can get a beautiful glimpse of the city with an eagle’s eye view of the Qutab Minar! But the reason of MS being a famous hang out spot is because of WindT.
5. Wind Tunnel (WindT)
Located just below MS, this is the best place in campus to hang out with your friends after lectures or at night. Designed in such an orientation with respect to sun that in day time, cool and refreshing breeze continuously blows through here, so the name ‘Wind Tunnel’ in short WindT!
