Asmita College of Architecture, Mira Road
This college is situated in Mira Road(E) at a 5 minutes walk from Mira Road station. Has NH High School, Rassaz mall and Singapore plaza as the nearby landmarks. Easily approachable by BEST buses as well. However people coming from proper Mumbai via private four wheelers would have to pay the toll tax.
It comprises of two separate buildings, one being the hostel and other the administration and class rooms. However there are two class rooms in the hostel building as well. The classes are air-conditioned. A small play ground also goes along the main building which is shared by the college and NH high school. The college is however averagely maintained. A new building is under process of construction which should be done in 2 years.
Fees varies for different years with the 1st yr fees being around Rs.48000/-
The College faculty is good as well as friendly. A good relation between teachers and students is maintained. The visiting faculty is highly experienced and well respected in the field.
Maintaining the 75% attendance would always be a good thing for students. Although it has not been that big an issue yet. However students generally attend lectures when they are in good company!
Crowd, in general, is good in all architecture colleges. The same goes with this one. A good relation is maintained between seniors and juniors which is not the case with all the colleges. People from around Mumbai as well as a handful of NRIs are a part of this college.
The canteen is decently sized. The quality of food is good. The prices are also reasonable. Although one thing different here is that the teachers too have their food in the canteen! So just be a little careful before mimicking a teacher over here! But all are cool about it.
Bored with the canteen food here? No worries! You have CCD, Singapore Plaza and Rassaz mall at a walking distance where you can have ample of variety in food. McDonald's is also not far off! The recently made Fantasy land also comes nearby which is a boon for architecture students! Rassaz mall also has a theatre if you wish to catch the latest movie! Although one would prefer Cinemax which is a little away. And lot more to talk about!
The college does not have a fest of it's own as such but can be done on student demand! Religious festivals like Dandiya, Christmas, etc. are celebrated in college!
Performance at NASA:
This college being pretty new has just attained NASA status completely. 1st year participation at all the events at NASA was above expectation! So you can expect much better performances further!
