About Guide
Watch Out! is the campus news body of the Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee. We are a student run group that functions under the aegis of the Cultural Council, IIT Roorkee. Watch Out! is financially independent of IIT Roorkee and is supported by advertising revenues. 23 years after it’s conception, Watch Out! has grown to offer news and commentary from around the campus on it’s website in conjunction with a semesterly print issue.


Founded in 1993, we trace our roots back to an attractive looking poster pinned to Govind Bhawan’s notice board. Started off by two entrepreneurial third-year students of the erstwhile University of Roorkee, our first issue was the handiwork of a humble team consisting of seven people and was printed under the kind patronage of Govind Bhawan’s Warden.
