That'd be IITRI,  IIT's Research Institute, not IIT Proper (the school), 
who used a 360/40 to run their student timesharing (remote ASR33 TTYs) 
in a DOS/360 foreground partition implementing the IITRAN language. 
IIRC, it was a 128K machine.  I don't recall what was on IITRI's 360/50. 
  Background was also available for student use via a 2501 card reader.
