The permanent campus of IIMN is being constructed at Dahegaon Mauza, MIHAN, 9 km from the Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Nagpur International Airport.
Built to cater to 600 students, the new 132-acre-campus has been designed to minimize the environmental footprint while facilitating learning both inside and outside the classroom. The campus will be developed in three phases.
Phase 1 covers approximately 60,000 sq. m of the site, and includes the construction of a state-of-the-art academic complex, library, administrative block, student hostels, sports complex and faculty housing. The campus will also house a Management Development Centre for the institute’s Executive Education Programme (EEP) and IIM Nagpur’s entrepreneurship incubation centre, InFED, in addition to allied infrastructure.
The development of Phase 1 of the permanent campus was flagged off at Shubharambh – the Groundbreaking Ceremony on March 6, 2019. More details here.

Now, after remobilization of the resources, it is expected that the work will commence very soon.
