The campus is notable for its greenery and open spaces in an otherwise congested part of the city. With gradual additions and expansions since its initial foundation, the campus has a mix of buildings depicting both modern Indian and Colonial architecture. As the campus expanded it incorporated hospitals that were originally independent before being absorbed into J.J. Hospital and thus retain some of their older names, notably: C.J. Ophthalmic Hospital, B.J. Hospital for Children, and the David Sassoon Hospital. The campus has a total of 45 wards, 5 hostels, and 7 canteens. It also provides residential facilities to its teaching faculty, resident doctors, medical students, nurses, and other hospital workers. The anatomy hall of Grant Medical College was featured in the movie Munnabhai M.B.B.S. as the central lecture hall in the fictional medical school attended by the lead character.
