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 under the umbrella of Committee on Student Activities (COSA). 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).
