Permanent Campus

IIT Jodhpur receives 5 Star GRIHA LD V1 Rating for its Campus Master Plan
The Master Plan of IIT Jodhpur’s Permanent Campus has been awarded 5 Star Rating by the Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment (GRIHA) Council on 11 December 2018. GRIHA Council is an independent platform for the interaction on scientific and administrative issues related to sustainable habitats in the Indian subcontinent. It was founded by TERI (The Energy and Resources Institute, New Delhi) with support from MNRE (Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Government of India). GRIHA Council, in association with The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) and the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), has launched the Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment (GRIHA).
The campus design of IIT Jodhpur visualizes all parts of all zones as interdependent, integral network, like the metabolism of a living organism, integrating social, economic and environmental sustainability to become a near-zero emission campus. Unlike a campus where buildings are spread out, increasing infrastructure and water consumption and creating heat islands, this campus uses a series of compact urban clusters typical of desert settlements. The campus is designed to be a flexible plug and play system by using a series of service tunnels, trenches and serviceable shafts that allow easy maintenance and upgrading of all wired and piped services without breaking open a wall, slab or road.
