The 3-acre campus is an oasis of green in the concrete of the metropolis. With a sprawling and plush lawn, manicured shrubs and copses, and aesthetically designed buildings, the IHM Kolkata campus is the ideal one for both learners and trainers. Other than the Institute building and the Staff Quarters, the campus houses the Boys’ and the Girls’ Hostels also. The Boys’ Hostel accommodates more than 150 students whereas the one for the girls can accommodate about 65. Most of the rooms are rented on a triple-sharing basis with a few single rooms which are allotted to the final year students only.
The Institute of Hotel Management (IHM) takes pride in its excellence in a resourceful library. The IHM’s collections of over five thousand specialized books including references, magazines, CDs, and rare videos on Hotel Management are housed in a spacious hall of the 2nd floor of the main building. This hall includes a modest reading room. The books on both core and non-core subjects are classified in fourteen different categories. Dewey decimal classification (23rd edition) method has been followed for the classification. Subject headings have been done according the 21st edition of the Library of Congress method. Computerization of the library is progressing in full swing where a user-friendly e-Granthalaya package has being used.
Medical: Working in the hotel industry demands not only a sound mind but a robust health also. To ensure that a student remains healthy all through his learning period, a qualified medical practitioner visits the Institute twice a week. The doctor is available at the hostels on the weekends too. In case of any sudden illness, he is always available on call. Standard First aid facility is also made available to the students in the practical labs.
Laundry: The Institute has a well-equipped automated laundry along with facilities for training students. Housekeepers use a laundry chute to get the dirty linen from the upstairs down to the laundry area. The sorting and washing operation involves the following:
► Sorting laundry.
► Loading bins which weigh 60 pounds of dry laundry, and 120 pounds when wet.
► Transporting (pushing/pulling) bins to washer.
► Loading washer.
► Unloading washer.
► Transporting (pushing/pulling) bins to dryer (towels only).
► Loading dryer with towels
► Unloading towels from the dryer
It is heartening to note that even during the period of recess in the industry, all renowned groups/hotels from large, medium and small sectors conducted on and off campus interviews. It may be noted that the pass-out students are advised to report to the Institute's Training & Placement cell in case they face any problem of unemployment as, even in the middle of academic session, several organizations contact of the Institute for suitable candidates. However, no pass- out student from 2015-2016 batch has so far reported for assistance. It is reported that a few students also joined several private institutes as faculty.
