Sushant School of Art and Architecture is a private Architecture college in Gurgaon, National Capital Region (India), India.


Sushant School of Art and Architecture was established in September 1989 by Chiranjiv Charitable Trust. The school is located in a campus shared with the Ansal Institute of Technology, spread over 15 acre of land with the Aravali hills in the backdrop.

The school is recognized by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and Council of Architecture.The school offers a 5 year undergraduate degree programme in architecture from Ansal University.[1][2][3] Sushant School is also an affiliate member of the Association of the Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA), U.S.A.

Chiranjiv Charitable Trust understands the rapidly evolving design environment within India and a change within global dynamics set the backdrop for inventive thinking and considered approaches to design. The trust to fill the emerging gap has started the Sushant School of Design.

The School responds to the need to develop India’s professional design community, from specialists to design managers. At the School students are exposed to a process that travels between concept and enterprise.

The trust finds its faith in the agenda of change, and through education it inspires students to experiment, create, and refine their ideas.
