The campus uses radiant cooling technology for cooling and heating the rooms and hostel to keep them at ambient temperature. This technology minimises the use of electricity and there is no emission of hot air to the atmosphere reducing global warming and is also better for the health of the students. The students and other members at the campus segregate dry and wet waste which enables the usage of wet waste to produce energy and makes disposing of waste easier and better for nature. There is a student committee that handles the infrastructure at the campus, hence students can contribute their thoughts, ideas and feedback to make changes in the campus.

The library at IIM Kashipur is quite new with advanced technology and organises a unique event related to human books. Lit Club’, the literary club of IIM Kashipur created history, as it made the institute, the second IIM to organize such one of its kind event, ‘HUMAN LIBRARY’ on 11th March 2018. There was already a buzz created when the idea was floated among the students and faculty via email.The event at IIM Kashipur saw participants from the students as well as faculty on varied topics ranging from ‘God vs Devil Paradox’ to ‘Art of Seduction’. The reason that makes this idea unique is that the ‘Human Book’ as well as the ‘Issuer’ are blindfolded throughout the process and the identities are not disclosed. This makes the ‘Human Books’ express their thought relevant to the topic with utmost freedom which might not been the case otherwise.
