The Indian Institute for Human Settlements (IIHS) is a national education institution committed to the equitable, sustainable and efficient transformation of Indian settlements.

IIHS aims to produce a new generation of interdisciplinary urban practitioners, innovators and scholars who have the knowledge, skills and perspectives to tackle the problems of 21st century urbanisation, via cutting-edge practice, teaching and globally benchmarked research. These scholars are producing new knowledge that can be used to find solutions to apparently intractable challenges facing cities, and adapt, scale and replicate them across the globe, transforming the everyday lives of people and the economy, society and the environment, as we know it today.
