The IT guest house, officially known as Gandhi Technology Alumni Centre, is the closest place available for accommodation near to the Institute of Technology. The centre was inaugurated in April 2006 by our Vice Chancellor, Prof. Panjab Singh. The centre was constructed at a cost of Rs. 4 crores by Gandhi Remembered Foundation. The trust was established by our alumni Shri Ramesh C Mody (class of 1955), who lives in USA. The same trust has also constructed Gandhi Smriti Girls Hostel, located across IT guest house.
The guest house has 22 double-seated rooms at present. The upper floor is under construction, which will add another 20 rooms and a meeting hall. The guest house has a dining hall facility, 24 hour hot and cold water, TV, two separate beds, heating and air-conditioning for the room, geyser, etc. The front desk is manned 24 hrs. There is also provision for calling a local taxi-cab company. Good quality lunch/dinner/breakfast is available in the mess.
The room charges vary depending upon the status of the guest, whether he is on official business, semi-official or personal (alumni meet, etc.). The rates for personal visit are Rs. 300 per night for a single person and Rs. 400 per night for two persons. Reduced rates apply for official or semi-official business (attending a seminar, guest of IT, etc.). Please verify the rates before booking. The payment is to be made in cash only, at the time of leaving, to the front desk.
The guest house is located on a quiet street near Limbdi corner. To reach there, drive on the Hostel Road from BHU gate, make right turn at Limbdi corner, proceed about 500 meters, and the guest house is on your left. For booking and more information, please contact:
