The permanent campus is located at Tadepalligudem town of West Godavari district in Andhra Pradesh. Around Rs. 400 crores has been granted by Government of India for the establishment of this campus.

Immediately Phase-II will be executed. HEFA / MHRD has sanctioned Rs. 400cr for infrastructure .

Stone was laid by the Union Minister for Human resource Development Smt. Smriti Irani and the Andhra Pradesh Chief minister N. Chandra Babu Naidu on 20 August 2015. The permanent building is likely to be completed within two to three or till regular arrangements years in an area of 176 acres. Till then the classes for the students of NIT Andhra Pradesh would be conducted in a temporary campus identified at Sri Vasavi Engineering College, Pedatadepalli near Tadepalligudem. Hostel facilities are extended for boys and girls.

The West Godavari district is extremely fertile, getting water abundantly throughout the Cotton barrage built on the Godavari River and the district is popularly known as the Granary of India since about 50% of the state's rice production comes from the district. An area of 176 acres has been earmarked in Tadepalligudem by Government of Andhra Pradesh is in the process of constructing the compound wall around the land and hand over to the institute for development of infrastructural facilities in the permanent campus. The location of NIT campus will be the old airport area along with already existing airstrip. The airstrip would soon serve as a 2 km, 8 line CC road in between the campus, and in any other campus in India would not possess such a wide CC lane in between campus. This also enhances the beauty of campus and the constructions are planned on either side of the air strip. The campus is very well connected such that one of its entrances would be on NH16 and the other side of the campus will be connected into the core town area of Tadepalligudem. The campus is extremely well connected by road Rajamahendravaram - Eluru (NH 216A), by rail Duvvada-Vijayawada section and by air Rajahmundry Airport is 50km away. All the factors of the campus are in such a way that the development of infrastructure, civil constructions etc., would not take much more time to grow and the institute would glory soon.
