But an urban campus can also be a disadvantage, because big city life distracts some students from their studies. There is a library on the grounds of the university. There are collected scientific works of graduates and teachers of the university, as well as fiction. Not only locals study at IIT, but also students from other countries. This is a unique opportunity to get in touch with the culture of other countries, meet representatives of different nationalities and make friends around the world.
