Life at IIAD

What keeps our creative ninjas engaged while they are at IIAD?

When the students are not hard at work in their design studios and workshops, they wholeheartedly immerse themselves in celebrating the IIAD spirit through co-curricular and extracurricular activities. This includes on campus events and off-campus study trips that contribute to their professional development as well as enable them to soak-in the rich design and crafts heritage of India.

The sections below will give you a glimpse of the exciting life and times of students at IIAD.

Off Campus Study Trips

Study trips are an indispensable aspect of the IIAD pedagogy as they allow students to move out of familiar learning spaces to places where they experience the visual and material culture and learn about art, craft, and design from subject matter experts in their true surroundings. These study trips also help build camaraderie and a sense of community among students, which in turn, help build positive peer relationships and a conducive environment for students to learn and grow during their collegiate years and beyond.

On-campus Events

Events at the IIAD campus are a mix of co-curricular activities that are a natural extension of what the students learn in their degree programmes and extra-curricular activities that help them unwind, celebrate and connect with the IIAD community from time to time. Here are some snapshots of major events that took place on campus.

Student Council

The Student Council is a squad of enthusiastic and committed design students entrusted with the task of being the voice of IIAD's student fraternity. Being a part of the Student Council helps students gather adequate experience that stretches beyond the academic realm; skills that would hold them in good stead when they begin their journey as professionals. The Student Council is actively engaged in organising co-curricular and extra-curricular activities both on and off the Campus.

Campus Facilities

The Indian Institute of Art and Design (IIAD) in collaboration with Kingston University, London is located in New Delhi. IIAD has emulated the best practices of renowned interior, communication and fashion designing colleges around the world. In addition, our infrastructure has evolved keeping in mind the dynamic needs of design students and faculty. The result is a state-of-the-art campus with cutting-edge technology poised to deliver truly world-class design education. The specially designed campus of IIAD provides huge spaces to facilitate multidisciplinary collaboration. It also provides advanced facilities for teaching learning as well as ample exhibition space for an art gallery where student's works are displayed. Easels, dummies and soft boards lineup the gallery space for a spectacular display of Art/Design work. Projection facilities intensify the ambience further.


Parents and students feel that living in accommodation recommended by the college during their first year makes the whole process of adjusting to the new environment easier. To this end, IIAD offers residential accommodation facility for outstation students on 'FIRST-COME-FIRST-SERVE-BASIS'. Kindly note the accommodation has limited seats and therefore the earlier you book the accommodation, the better you are placed.

We can also provide you with a list of PG accommodations available near the IIAD campus for your convenience. For more information please call on +91 11 41380000 or +91 9871383633.
