The aim is to create a green, educational and recreational space where learning is made meaningful and enjoyable.


Academic Blocks

Well-planned, aesthetically appealing and well – ventilated comprehensive infrastructure is the striking feature of VIT-AP. We now have two academic blocks at present, that are specialized buildings which cater to the holistic requirements of the teaching-learning process. Academic Block -1 called as the Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan Block and Academic Block – 2 is called as APJ Abdul Kalam Block. The idea behind these separate blocks is to make every block equipped with the necessary amenities whilst providing the perfect atmosphere for both studies and research.

Academic Block-1, Area 179090.52 sq.ft.


The Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan Block now has the major administrative offices like the Chancellor’s Office, Admissions Office, Finance Office, and other Offices which are responsible for addressing student issues. Apart from these, it also houses the VIT-School of Business (VSB). All the major departments, like the Department of Computer Science, Department of Mechanical Engineering and Department of Electrical Engineering exist here. This block also consists of classrooms and well-designed labs providing the best facilities to students



Academic Block-2, Area 183509.99 sq.ft.


The APJ Abdul Kalam has School of Sciences and Languages, which comprise of the Departments of Mathematics, Physics, and Languages. This block also has classrooms, labs, space for the auditorium.
