    REMARKS

    The college management is good.Many people don't like that the college is so far from the city,but that's the case with many colleges that have big campuses.

    Truly one of the best hostel rooms very spacious, two people have to share one room,the room comes with a balcony which is shared between two rooms.There are enough rooms, its mandatory to stay in the hostel.

India's Best Architecture College

Remarks -

Good thing is the Best college for architecture in India where you can learn a lot. Bad thing is old campus. Hostel is 10 kms away. Also the pressure of the course. We are given homeworks and need to all night long work often.

Remarks -

Overall I'd say it's a pretty good college considering its much better than alot of colleges in Delhi and even though it's not perfect or anything to be impressed with. It still holds up as one of the best colleges in Delhi in my opinion.

A peek into SPA_an incredible journey full of highs and lows

Remarks -

The rigor of the acamedics can often lead to unprecedented stress. There isn't any effort from the college to help students cope with this stress. A councillor was appointed for a only brief while.

SPA DELHI REVIEW

Remarks -

Overall, there are lots of negative remarks on SPA DELHI. They do not even provide basic facilities for the fees they take. Even what little facilities that exists are very poorly maintained. The lifts does not work more often than not, the coolers for drinking water are outdated and filters unchanged, fire extinguishers outdated, poor parking facilities, no grounds for sports related activities, no air conditioners in the classroom for the unbearable Delhi heat, very poor provision of funds, non-existent placement cells, and the lists goes on.

This is a really awesome college to study in and if you want to pursue B.Arch for sure, then this is the best place. However, the infrastructure of the college should be developed as it small making it one of its major weakness to be an good architecture college.
