Student Life

Student life at IISER Pune is vibrant and can be a very enriching experience. Going beyond the call of academic work, there are several student organisations/clubs devoted to sports, entertainment, recreation and a variety of other fields of interest. Each of these activities is overseen by a faculty coordinator. As part of these clubs, the students meet regularly and organise events, workshops, field trips, lectures and other activities.

Karavaan (annual cultural festival), Mimamsa (annual inter-collegiate quiz contest), and clean-up drives (by Prutha, the environment club) are some of the regular and successful endeavours run by the students' bodies.

IISER Pune has a vibrant sports culture. IISER Pune contingents regularly represent the institute at the Inter-IISER Sports Meet (IISM).
