The REC middle school was started in 2010 by the alumni of NIT Trichy. It functions with 10 faculties and 186 students from classes 1 to 8. Students follow TN state board curriculum. It has various facilities like separate toilets for girls and boys, functioning computer lab, library and a staff room. It requires facelifting such as some painting work and mild repairing work to be done. Students also would love to have the playground renovated and would encourage internal staff to educate their wards in the REC middle school than send them to other schools outside.
There are plenty of sports facilities available for the students. There are two basketball courts and four courts for lawn tennis. Inside the sport centre building there are three badminton courts and a gym. Moreover, indoor games like chess, carrom etc are also available. A big NSO ground for cricket and football is also there with a separate area for athletes. A separate area for hockey and handball attracts many individuals. Kabaddi and kho kho teams have their own separate areas. A swimming pool is also present with separate timings for girls and boys. Moreover, there are separate grounds for each hostel so students have a choice to play near their hostels. Renovation work for the swimming pool is under progress. There are avenues for improvement of various facilities such as providing turf for the running track and modernisation of football and hockey fields for which assistance from sports enthusiasts is sought.
Computer Support Group
This center serves the campus-wide LAN in close association with the user departments. This LAN caters to about 6500 users across the campus (using Wired connection and through Wireless). It has a 10 Gbps fiber optic backbone interconnecting the departments/buildings. CSG has been providing infrastructure for administering GMAT (Graduate Management Aptitude Test), NSCA (National Strength and Conditioning Association), UKCAT (UK Clinical Aptitude Test), Microsoft Certification and other Tests since March 2016. These tests were administered by the CSG staff who were trained and certified by the testing agency, Pearson.
Proposals have been submitted to the National Supercomputing Mission to enhance research and parallel computing infrastructure in the campus. Besides, financial assistance is required in upgradation of the systems in the computer labs to meet the modern day computing and educational requirements
Open Air Theatre
Open air theatre in the campus is the Golden Jubilee Convention Centre. It is a massive structure inaugurated in the year 2017 and hosts various events like orientation for freshers and proshows during cultural fests.
Pathway from Hostel to Academic Zone
The road to the academic zone from hostels is good without any pits but it has some invariable inclinations which sometimes make cycling harder. Moreover, there is absence of footpaths on either sides of the roads. The path is not at all shady. One has to cycle his way through to the academic areas like LHC or Orion under the hot sun. A covered pathway is the need of the hour to protect the students from the harsh sun or torrential rain, with provisions for seating along the path. This would help the students with full accessibility without needing to shunt continuously from hostel to academic zone.
There are 2 food courts available in the campus which provide wide variety of Indian cuisines. There is one common food court named as Kailash near the boys hostel which provides a wide variety of dishes. One can order anything available there. This functions throughout the day and provides breakfast, lunch, dinner, juices and desserts. There is a separate food court for girls inside Opal functioning from 6pm in the evening to 2am.
It is one of the lifelines of NITT students. It has many shops which provide the basic materials for day to day life. There is a stationary shop, photocopy and binding shop, fruit juice centre, a tailor shop, one cycle repairing shop, shoe shop, a SBI branch with a 24 hour working ATM, a hair salon as well a laundry. There is also a provision for a new restaurant in place of the Buhari which existed. One shop provides you with sweets and eatables. There is a general store as well. Moreover, a travel agency shop from where you can hire taxies as is also present. One of the shops provides you with fresh fruits too. And more shops will be opening in the nearby future.
