The International Medical College & Hospital is located at the outskirts of the commercial township of Tongi and is about 22 km away from the city centre of Dhaka. The major bus stands/terminals, railway station and Shahjalal International Airport are within maximum distance of 30 minutes.

IMC always gives preference to students’ affairs on priority basis. Since we believe that a tranquil, soothing lodging is an inevitable necessity especially for medical students, we have arranged well furnished accommodations for male and female students in two separate hostels. Three-storied Boys’ Hostel is located on the bank of the lake inside the campus. The newly built three-storied Girls’ Hostel is situated beside the College building. There are separate blocks for foreign male and female students. Both the hostels are adequately furnished with articles needed for everyday living and entertainment. Well trained cooks for both local and foreign students are provided by the College for both the hostels.
Students not residing in the hostels are provided with pick up and drop off facilities from certain points in the city. A special transport facility is provided twice a month to the students residing in the hostels to go to the city for shopping or other related activities.
