International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIIT-H) is an autonomous university set up as a research university focused on the core areas of Information Technology, such as Computer Science, Electronics and Communications, and their applications in other domains. Established as a not for profit public private partnership (NPPP) in 1998, IIIT-H received grants of land and buildings from the Government of Andhra Pradesh and became the first IIIT to be started on the NPPP model.

IIIT-H’s governing council includes eminent personalities from the academia, industry and government. Raj Reddy, the only Indian to win the Turing Award, is the chairman of the board of governors. Vint Cerf, popularly known as the father of the internet also a Turing Awardee joined the board of governors in February, 2015 to guide IIIT Hyderabad's long term vision and research.

Unlike most institutes that have departments, IIIT-H is organised as research centres and labs with assigned faculty members to conduct research and academic programmemes.

IIIT-H has been a consistent performer from India in the ACM International Collegiate Programmeming Contest (ICPC) and finished at #18 in 2012.


Spread over 66 acres, the IIIT-H campus is bordered by the Hyderabad Central University, Indian School of Business (ISB), TCS-CMC, Indian Immunologicals and Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Development Banking (JNIDB).  The campus is sited in the close vicinity of HiTech City Centre.

The campus hosts well-equipped, air-conditioned computer laboratories with latest hardware and software, well stocked library with large collection of reference books, text books, technical reports, standards, literature books and CDROMS and over 150 journals/magazines. The institute also houses a digital library, an online archive of useful software, books and tutorial and students can download any permitted software from this resource. The digital library also features textbooks and reference books in the digital format as well along with recorded lectures and most courses maintain an intranet site containing lecture slides and other course material. All computers in the campus are part of an intranet (1Gbps Backbone), which connects all buildings, including the hostels; and a high-bandwidth (8 Mbps) internet is available round the clock.

The campus hosts four vegetarian messes (North Mess, South Mess,  Mixed Mess and Yuktahar Mess), a canteen which serves snacks, non-veg food and general fast foods, cafeterias that serve juices, milk products and snacks. Other facilities include bank extension counter, ATM machine, stationary shop and laundry services.

The sports infrastructure includes facilities for cricket, volley ball, soccer, basket ball, table tennis, etc.


Being a residential institute, it is compulsory for all students to stay on-campus. Separate hostels for boys and girls are available on-campus with basic facilities. All the hostel rooms are well networked and internet enabled.

Gymnasium facilities are available in hostel with a physical trainer, apart from the common gym which is open for all residents. A separate mini gym is also provided for girls in the girls’ hostel.

Part time programmemes

Part time PG programmemes are for Hyderabad based professionals to join the PG Student Status Programmeme (PGSSP) that allows them to enroll in courses of their interest and helps them acquire knowledge in chosen areas without regard to any degree. Students awarded the PGSSP status can take a maximum of two courses each semester. If they choose, based on their performance in the courses, professionals may be formally admitted into a part-time (or full-time) degree programmeme.

The courses taken under the PGSSP scheme will then count towards the formal degree. In case the candidate is interested in part-time research programmemes (MS or PhD), they should additionally meet relevant faculty members and discuss their research plans and/or do a project with them.
