- The most distinctive feature of the Noida Campus is its sheer size. The 350 acres of greenery, as befits a space of higher learning, ensure that students and teachers get a calm, tranquil, and safe environment where students can study, teach, learn, and grow. The guided programs are held in fully air-conditioned classrooms and a moot court. All parts of the campus are wi-fi enabled, including the hostels. Pick and drop facilities are available for students and faculty members from the campus to the nearest metro station. Overall, the university aims to provide a caring and pastoral atmosphere where students feel empowered to live, learn, and grow while completing their higher education.
- The MLS Library houses a world-class collection of contemporary and historical legal materials. It has a definitive collection of over 5000 books, bound volumes of journals, 26 subscriptions to journals and newspapers, and 150 CDs and DVDs. The library subscribes to several online databases from both international and national spheres, including manupatra.com, Westlaw, and other online subscriptions through the DELNET, open-access resources, and India’s legal information institute and the World Legal Information Institute. It is a depository library for the International Committee of the Red Cross as well.
- MUIT provides safe, secure, and congenial residential facilities for enrolled students. The girls and boys hostels are housed in separate wings of the University Building with separate entrances. The hostel fees include housekeeping also. A counsellor and doctor are always available for the services in case of any happening.
There are top faculties for every house like in MLS Prof. M.K Balachandran, one of the top 100 legal scholars in India. There are various courses available under the law like BBA LLB, BCOM LLB, BALLB, LLM, PGDL, LLB. The fee structure for BBALLB BALLB AND BCOMLLB is 1,25,000 per annum except for hostel charges, LLB is 1,00,000 per annum, and for LLM is 1,35,000.
MUIT provides the mess facility to the hostellers and day scholars, both with reasonable charges, including within the hostel fee. It provides a healthy meal three times a day, and a cafeteria is also there for small gatherings that contain tea snacks for students. The Noida campus is an active cultural hub. It organizes sports week, a cultural festival and a street play by the best theatres ever year. Faculty members and students make active and conscious efforts to encourage a vibrant atmosphere that exposes students to various modes of thought and expression and brings them closer to India’s dynamic cultural identity.
In keeping with the mentorship based approach, the MLS pedagogy includes a compulsory internship component from the first year. Students get an opportunity to intern every year of study, which gives them an edge in the job markets. By the end of the taught programs, it offers student access to an entire job network, which increases the chance of employment several-fold. Various job fairs and placement fairs are organized to enter the house of legal and corporate offices.
The best thing in MUIT is the quality of learning provided by faculty members and cultural activities. The worst thing is the sports facility and lack of food in the cafeteria.
