Get empowered, be part of our
virtual campus, build real communities
and become future leaders.
Here in IITM BS degree, students, faculty and staff work together to support students make the most of their opportunities.
Your house is where you seek, share, support and study together and do what you love through clubs and activities.
All students in the programme will be divided into 12 houses named after the forests in India.
We invite the Student community to feel at home in their forest houses of Bandipur, Corbett, Gir, Kanha, Kaziranga, Nallamala, Namdapha, Nilgiri, Pichavaram, Saranda, Sundarbans and Wayanad.
Each house accommodates nearly 30 groups of 20 students each where the group members are from the same city or neighbouring cities and house members are from across the country.
Leaders, Mentors & Elections
In a House, Groups elect their Group Leaders and the Group Leaders in turn elect their Secretary, Deputy Secretary and Web Admin among themselves. All the leaders of the House Council are below 25 years of age.
It is the responsibility of the Mentors, who are above 25 years of age and who are identified by the House Council, to conduct free & fair elections. They also guide the elected members of the House Council.
Upper House Council
Secretaries and Deputy Secretaries of all 12 houses constitute the Upper House Council that governs all houses. The Mentoring Committee, made up of one mentor from each house, along with the UHC and BS Degree team work together in defining policy for house guidelines.
