Miranda House was ranked 3rd among Science colleges and 5th among Arts colleges in India by India Today in 2018. In terms of placements, the college is ranked 16th and 14th for Science and Arts courses, respectively. Based on its rankings in the India Today-Neilson survey, it has dropped eight spots from its previous year’s ranking for Science and two spots down for Arts.
Miranda House has a decent campus with vast stretches of green cover. The building, although historical and old, looks classy. The classrooms are not air-conditioned yet spacious. The campus has Wi-Fi connectivity. The college hostel is laid out in a quadrangle and has recently been renovated under the Heritage Building Project. Its design allows sufficient privacy within which students can reside unreservedly. The dining hall is one of the assets of the college, with monastic tables and benches set along a long hall.
Apart from the college building and the hostel block, the major features of its structure include its library and auditorium. The library is fully automated and has an audio-visual section and a Digital Resource Centre that includes networked computers providing access to internet, E-resources, and journals. The college also hosts the extension counter of the University Branch of the State Bank of India.
The hostel is laid out in an aesthetically designed quadrangle enclosing well maintained gardens paced out by a majestic bottle palm lined pathway. The long corridors, the dining hall with a high arched ceiling, and stonework balconies add to its charm. Over the last few years, extensive restoration and refurbishment work has been undertaken to preserve its red brick facade and unique interiors. A new hostel block was added in 2012. It matches in grandeur the old Walter George building. Sitting smugly on the periphery of the old hostel, it integrates well and adds equal beauty and grace to the campus.
A Medical Support Unit was established at Miranda House, located within the hostel in January 2014. It is a facility shared with the college. It augments the prevalent arrangement where all students in residence are compulsorily members of World University Service (WUS) Health Centre, University of Delhi, located at V. P. Patel Chest Institute, across the road from Miranda House. WUS provides basic medical facilities to the students.
The college accords high priority to the counseling process, given the fact that nearly 70% students come from outside Delhi, several are first generation learners and the full range of diversity exists within the college community, be it in terms of differing socio-economic and educational backgrounds, differing ethnicities, cultures, religious affiliations, or student's abilities. Problems of relocation, sudden independence, social activity, technology mediated social networks, peer pressure, and intense competition pose several challenges to the individual.
The college encourages a number of activities through clubs such as the Adventure Club and the Film Club. Many events are conducted on campus by associations such as the Quiz Society, Fine Arts Society and SPICMACAY – the Society for Promotion of Indian Classical Music and Culture Amongst Youth. Tempest is the annual festival of Miranda House, in which students from all universities across the country participate.
A placement cell is run by the college’s faculty and student volunteers. It organises campus recruitment drives in addition to providing career counselling services to students. The campus is visited by a large number of companies and employers every year. Some of the companies where students have successfully secured placements include Max New York Life Insurance Company, Standard Chartered Bank, Zee Telefilm Limited, SAIPEM Triune Engineering Pvt. Ltd., Star News, etc.
