In this campus, courtyards are used as the structuring devices. The constituent seven buildings, each with a courtyard are organized along the two axes of the scheme.
Built over the area of 9210 sq. m., the Entrepreneurship Development Institute is an autonomous, not-for-profit institution, based on the idea that entrepreneurial talent need not be inherent but can be nurtured through innovative training.
The institute is devoted to provide specialized entrepreneurship education, training & research, consultancy services, quality teaching and training material to approximately 110 postgraduate students each year. Built in exposed brick, exposed concrete and steel, the design readily evokes a combined sense of modernity and tradition.

Additional facilities include café, hostels and 10 dormitories; and faculty housing with 6 row houses and 6 flats.
