Indian Institute of Public Health Gandhinagar

Campus Tour

IIPHG is spread in 40 acres of lush green area on the eastern side of Gandhinagar. Located amidst the ravines of the Sabarmati, the IIPHG campus harbours and maintains a rich and diverse ecology of flora and fauna by integrating various facilities and activities with the landscape. Its 1, 30,000 square feet built-up area has been designed by the world famous architect Ashok Lall, a specialist in low energy sustainable architecture. The graceful and functional buildings tread gently on the ground to minimize the impact on the frail ecology and topography. Well connected from Ahmedabad through radio cabs and public transport, the wifi-enabled campus provides safe and secure learning and living experience.
