Visitors' Hostel & Allied Facilities

Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur 

Visitors’ Hostel (VH)

Designed by the architect, Kanavinde and Oberai, the Visitors' Hostel (VH) was one of the first buildings to come up in 1963 on the campus along with few labs and duplex houses. Main attraction of VH is its dining hall whose roof is acoustically designed and funneled through concealed pipes to collect rain water.

The first function held at VH was on the New Year’s Eve in 1964, organized by Professor Oberai. VH has had the honor of hosting many distinguished personalities from all over the word. The earliest was Dr. Homi Bhabha. Over the years, VH has expanded its facility, and as of today, we have 15 suites, 1 Presidential suite, 67 twin bedded rooms along with two dining halls.

As the institute grew, a new Visitors' Hostel – 2(VH-2) with 103 rooms was constructed. For long-term visitors traveling with family, 8 two bedroom and 4 three bedroom Visiting Faculty Apartments (VFA) were constructed. These VFA are fully furnished houses.
