This song strikes my mind when I think of NIT Surat campus filled with Lots of trees and the thick bushes along the roads. This makes for pleasant environment within the COLLEGE premises. You’d observe a clear contrast between the temperature within and outside the campus, especially during winters.
NIT Surat is known for having one of the BEST INTERNET connections among all NIT’s. Great speed, unlimited data and no down-time(well, mostly). Streaming and downloading happen at an excellent pace.LAN speeds are fantastic. The maximum speed seen on laptop is about 70 MBps . On an average, you can get speeds close to 10-15 MBps.
There were old hostels till about 2008-09, but new ones have been built since then. Modern, clean, well-maintained rooms and corridors, single-occupancy spacious rooms with NEW FURNITURE and functioning switchboards and separate balconies for each room(excluding some hostels).
If you have ever experienced Hostel life u will know that a good hostel and Fabulous friends can’t be traded for a plush villa too;-)
