The Student Block of IIM Ranchi has recently shifted to the residential block of the sports village a.k.a. Khelgaon which is located in the outskirt of Ranchi. The cool, calm and pleasant weather, lots of greenery and being away from the turmoil of the city provides a colourful and vibrant ambiance, making it ideal for student life. The housing facility at IIM Ranchi is at par with the best in the world. It consists of separate blocks for girls and boys. IIM Ranchi is one of the few institutes which have fully Wi-Fi enabled campus. The housing facility consists of a mix of three bedroom and four bedroom shared flats that are fully furnished, serviced and are installed with five star facilities. Each block consists of a mess and a canteen which remain open for nearly 20 hours a day on an average and a dispensary for medical concerns. Each floor of the block is installed with common announcement system.
Each flat consists of three or four bedrooms, a common room and a kitchenette. All the rooms in the flats have single occupancy and are installed with intercom and voice and data ports for telephone, campus LAN and the Internet. Housekeeping services are also provided.
The common room is a hub for students to conduct informal meetings and to socialize and relax. More often than not, this is the place where one can chance upon hidden talents of the students. It consists of two indoor game rooms, a fully equipped music room, a fitness centre and a conference room for informal meetings.
The safety of its students is definitely one of the top most priorities of IIM Ranchi. So, with tremendous support from the Government of Jharkhand, the institute has installed VIP security system for the students. There is a common entrance to the Student Block which has four armed guards looking over and nobody is allowed to enter without proper credentials. Apart from this each block has two guards looking over 24*7 and nobody other than students, faculty and other employees of the institute are allowed to enter.
