1.Nature flirts with diversity

Owing to its location some meters above the sea level, Mountains, Valleys, Forests you have it all for a refreshing view through the classrooms when the prof's lectures start getting monotonous! (quite a often phenomenon)

2.FC the foodies' haven

Food Court! 3 floors of worldwide cuisine to try out and you will end up liking at least something.

3.The oil rig

Yes! it is a full oil rig situated inside the campus to train your hands on before the actual game. Get set go . . .

4.Dheeraj, Kannoo and .8

And when the food court needs a change, these eating outlets comes to rescue. Also the occasional smoking zone. Ya some people love it !!! You would too when your lungs long for some tobacco

5.DC and NC

Gabbar !!! The two most dreaded acronyms. Be it disciplinary committee or not clear, its always bad news.

6.Back to school

Uniform, attendance, tie nahi hai to ander nahi jaa sakte, and so on to give you feel that you might still be in school. Though good to read, quite painstaking to follow.


The gift(don't be mistaken, not free) shop at UPES in case you wanna carry back memories in a merchandise. Best buddy in buying a tie or sweater when lost!


The little village which nestles the college, shops, PGs... A small ecosystem on its own!

9.Fests! Not one, but 3

Uurja, Ignite and the SPE fest. One or the other will always be around the corner. We always strongly believe that all work makes a dull boy, hence concentrate on play more often

10.PMC Priya Milan Chowk

Yes. Apart from what you are already thinking, singles also go there at times for the occasional coffee, chai or sandwich. But yes, mostly, its about what you are thinking

11.Chitrakoot, Takshila, Nalanda

No!! Don?t be misled . We are in the 21st century. No time machine. Just the name. The mythological and historical names for classrooms and blocks. You do feel great !!!
