The complex has two main entrances, one of which can be reached by going straight from the Agriculture department/Nehru Museum and the other by taking a right turn at the same place. The complex is divided into 7 blocks total, of 3 types: Academic, Rectangular and Circular. It has 5 floors including the ground floor. Each block on each floor consists of 4 classrooms.
Finding your room at Nalanda complex can be confusing initially. But in reality it is quite simple. Your room number is of the form " NX abc", where X is either A,R or C - representing Academic, Rectangular and Circular, and a,b,c are digits. a represents the floor number, b represents the block number, and c represents the classroom. The image here shows how to identify the block. For example, NC 341 is located on the circular block near Subway, on the third floor, because it is in the NC4 block.
