About College

The Indian Institute for Human Settlements (IIHS) is a national education institution committed to the equitable, sustainable and efficient transformation of Indian settlements.

India’s urbanisation is the second largest rural to urban transition in human history. By the middle of the century, at least 800 million Indians will live in cities and they will constitute more than half of India’s population.

  • New knowledge that they can use to find solutions to these apparently intractable challenges; and adapt, scale and replicate them across a nation of over 1.4 billion people, transforming the everyday lives of people and the economy, society and the environment, as we know it today.

IIHS will establish a national level institution of international eminence to address the above issues. IIHS began with a three-year-long process that brought together global and international partners to create a globally-benchmarked, future-oriented, interdisciplinary curriculum for this proposed new degree. This Curriculum sits across IIHS’ five interdisciplinary schools, its proposed Doctoral, Master’s and Bachelor’s programmes, as well as the current nine-month, full-time, taught certificate fellowship, the Urban Fellows Programme.

The proposed IIHS Institution of Eminence (IOE) is premised on this need to transform the current nature of urban education as one of the most important drivers for India’s national development and sustainable global futures.
