Canteen In IIT Mandi, Academic Block
August 23, 2011 09:40AM
The eagerly awaited canteen was inaugurated in July, 2011. It is located on the ground floor of the Academic Block, next to the Suvalser Hostel, overlooking the Beas River. In a short time, the canteen has become an integral part of the social life of the campus. Managed by the owners of the popular Cafe Treat in Mandi, the canteen caters to everybody ranging from the health conscious to the self-proclaimed 'junkies' at a reasonable price. Not only students but also faculty and staff frequent the canteen. Sometimes, students are seen with their teachers sipping tea at the same table, engrossed in some intellectual discussion or other.


Historians claim that coffee houses played an important role in the public sphere during the Age of Enlightenment in 17^th and 18^th century England. One can hope that the canteen at IIT Mandi also creates an intellectual community that plays a crucial role in the academic achievements of this young Institute.
