Top 9 reasons that make IIM Udaipur different from other IIMs in India

IIM Udaipur campus is situated on a 300-acre site in Balicha about 8 km from Udaipur on a beautiful hillock, extending an enchanting view surrounded by lush green scenarios around. 

As you climb up the hill, you bask in the beauty of a wonderful architecture saving the beautiful clicks your mind captures looking around. The wonderful feature of the architecture is that it directly takes you to the sixth floor of the campus and thereafter you can go down via lifts and stairs for different classes.

Udaipur basically evokes the sense of heritage, beauty and grandeur and this cradle of culture and history is the perfect backdrop for IIM Udaipur.

With this heritage, culture and location, IIM Udaipur is truly the place where history meets the future.

Let’s find out why the IIM Udaipur campus is different from other IIMs:

*Architecture: The overall design reflects the traditional fortress architecture that is a significant part of Rajasthan’s history and culture. 

*Lakes and Courtyards: The Academic Block is at the heart of the campus with lakes on two sides and many courtyards (inspired by Udaipur’s chowks) on different levels to take advantage of the multitude of views. 

*Minimising energy production: The architecture has been designed to minimize energy consumption and a solar power farm will be built on campus to generate electricity. The entire campus has been designed for a GRIHA (Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment) LD 5 Star rating.

*Independent water supply: To make the campus independent in its water supply requires a sophisticated scheme for rainwater harvesting during the monsoon. 

*Check dams: A system of check dams is being put in place at strategic locations within the terrain to create several interlinked lakes. 

*Natural catchments modified: During the construction process, natural catchments have been modified and water will be directed through channels using the slope and direction of the land to be stored in the local water bodies for use throughout the year.

*Zero-waste facility: In addition to conserving power and water, the campus has been planned to be a zero-waste facility, where waste will be an important resource utilizing DEWATS (Decentralized Wastewater Treatment Systems), vermicomposting and biogas production.

*Community impact: The campus will have a significant impact on the surrounding community which will reap benefits in terms of production of flora, more stable year-round grass supply and generation of a large number of jobs in maintenance and other services.

*Water retention and conservation: The magnificent site is characterized by sharp slopes and deep valleys. As a result, the key design principle is based on water retention and conservation.
