The Hobbies Club at the Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee, is the only one of its kind amongst all the IITs. It aims at facilitating activities like Photography, Philately, Star Gazing etc. which are normally beyond the reach of any student. The hobbies club council is headed by a Chief Advisor, who is well supported by two Deputy Chief Advisors (for administration and finance) and a council secretary (student representative). Further each section has its own personnel and technicians for proper working. The personnel consist of a Staff Advisor supported by one Secretary and a Joint Secretary, who are selected from amongst the members. This Administrative Hierarchy ensures active student participation as well as the smooth running of the Hobbies Club. The hobbies club also hosts India's some of the most talked about events like SRISHTI which is an all India contest encompassing technical institutes and educational institutions across the country.
