Indian Institute of Technology Dharwad (IIT Dharwad) is located at the outskirts of the twin cities of Hubballi-Dharwad in the north of Karnataka. This picturesque place is located between the Western Ghats (Malenadu) and the deccan Planes (Bayalu Seeme). Accordingly, Dharwad derives its name from the Sanskrit word “DWARAWATA”. The twin cities are well known for their culture, literature and the Indian freedom movement. The historic fort of Kittur, where Rani Chennamma fought the British in 1824, is just 20 kilometers from the IIT Dharwad campus.
The interim campus of IIT Dharwad is located just a few meters away from this highway. The WALMI (Water And Land Management Institute) campus of IIT Dharwad is fully equipped with class rooms, laboratories, modern hostel buildings. This campus is expected to serve the needs of IIT Dharwad for the first couple of years. The 560 acre new IIT Dharwad campus is expected to come up in a couple of years and is located two kilometers away from the Pune-Bangaluru National Highway (NH4).
