There are two banks on-campus: the Punjab National Bank (P.N.B.) and the State Bank of India(S.B.I.). Both the banks provide Centralised Banking Services, Internet Banking and A.T.M. facilities. On enrollment, every student of IIT-R must open an account with either bank.
Both the banks are centrally located. While P.N.B. is near the post office, the S.B.I branch on campus is located in the main building. The A.T.M. of Punjab National Bank is located next to the bank. S.B.I. operates 2 A.T.M.s on-campus- one near the bank branch and the other in Cautley Bhawan. Apart from these, many banks have branches and A.T.M. facilities in the town, that is, off-campus.

Places Of Worship
IIT Roorkee is a place where people of different faiths come together in learning. To ensure that all their religious customs are maintained, a number of places of worship are constructed on campus. A Temple dedicated to the Goddess Saraswati, near the football field in Saraswati Kunj, a Church near the main gate and a Mosque near Khosla International House, all dot the campus and add to its charm. Among the most peaceful places on campus, all these places of worship are the prime destination when all one wants to do is get away from it all.
The campus of the institute is well secured and surrounded by boundary walls. There are security guards at every entrance gate, who check all the vehicles entering the campus. Inside the campus, a number of security booths keep a strict vigil. Complaints regarding security can be registered in the security office.
