Life at AIT AIT benefits from its location on the outskirts of Pune in that it is not plagued by air and noise pollution and that the
ample space allows for planned expansion. The largest building is the Academic Block, which houses the lecture halls, most laboratories,
offices for the administration and an auditorium. The lawn in front of the Academic Block is the first view that visitors to the campus
have, and is; one of the preferred spots for a sit-down in the evenings. On either side of this centre are located the hostels for
students and residential quarters for staff. As AIT is intended to be a residential college, the campus attempts to be self-contained
and has various messes and cafés, along with a shop for common household products and an ATM of the HDFC Bank. Sports are an especially
popular pastime at AIT and the campus boasts a basketball court, a cricket field, a tennis court, a volleyball court, a football (soccer)
field, a badminton court (which sport, of course, originated in Pune), fitness studio, a croquet lawn and two squash courts. Indoor
sports are also enjoyed, be it chess, pocket billiards or table tennis.
The AIT library is open to all students and staff and is one of the most frequented locations on campus. The library has a very technical bent and, as of 2022, had 11660 titles and 35175 volumes of print books, and subscribed to 977 e-journals, 1638 e-books, DELNET Database and 33 print national periodicals.
The current focus is on augmenting instruction media to include
Computer Based Teaching.
The campus is well serviced through public transportation links to the nearby suburb Vishrantwadi and also to
the most popular locations in Pune: the University, Deccan, Main and East Streets and the railway station. The village of Dighi is a
short walk away, as are the hills which lend their name to the locality.
