Right from the time of arrival a student is welcomed with a process of induction into various aspects of the institute's life. This begins with registration after which those in need of accommodation are appropriately helped. There are limited facilities in both the Men's and Women's Hostels. General Catering Services are also provided but only in the Main Dining Hall. What follows next is a broad orientation of the Institute's rules and regulations pertaining to the conduct and behaviour of students'. Co-curricular, spiritual, as well as general guidance and counseling programmes are well provided. A critical objective of the above endeavours is to inculcate a culture of care to society and responsible dialogue with stakeholders.
