The lush green, 60 acres permanent campus for IIM Amritsar is located at Manavala on Amritsar-Jalandhar GT Road. The campus is designed as an eco-friendly, green campus focused on providing an amazing learning experience to the students.

Located in a green setting, the campus will provide a medley of the rural landscape and urban facilities at one place. The campus will also provide all the state of the art facilities for the students to have the best learning and growing experience to be the leaders of tomorrow.

The master plan concept evolution shown above is the clear reflection of the planning principles of zoning and circulation described earlier. The built and open begins to take a lucid form and some ideas of landscape patterns also begin to reveal


It is based on the principles of:

  • • Interconnected communities
  • • Land use and functional efficiency
  • • Reserve for future growth
  • • Permanent “GREEN LUNGS”

The central zone of the site is dedicated to Academic zone with an experiential arrival zone on the North, student community to it’s East and faculty community to it’s West. The sports zone is ideally placed to it’s South with easy access from the residential zones.

A detached zone of 7 acres on the extreme North-West will be developed as a natural forest with local flora and fauna.


The approach road for NH1 has been extended as boulevard leading to a grand arrival plaza to the North of the academic zone. The zoning permits very efficient circulation system which revolves around the central academic zone Vehicular movement is confined to the periphery enabling pedestrianization of all the important areas. The services and staff access has been taken from the south for efficiency of movement and to keep the arrival area decongested.


  • • Concentric planning enabling a well integrated phase-I giving a sense of completeness, cohesion and ease of construction in future with least disturbance to the areas in use.
  • • Reserve for future expansion beyond phase-III
  • • Central infrastructure network to feed all phases with least disturbance during construction of later phases.


  • • Hierarchy of open spaces – providing opportunity of interaction/ activity at all levels.
  • • Central academic court is the heart of the campus with smaller courtyards ringed around to encourage activities at all scales.
  • • Built and open spaces compliment each other with focus on interconnectedness and community living

  • Built and open spaces are designed around the three communities:
  • • Student community spaces at multiple scales
  • • Faculty community spaces
  • • Academic community spaces
