Student Houses

All students in the programme will be divided into 12 houses named after the forests in India.

Your house is where you seek, share, support and study together and do what you love through clubs and activities.

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.

Upper House Council & Elections

Secretaries and Deputy Secretaries of all 12 houses constitute the Upper House Council that governs all houses.

The Student Elections Committee constituted by Student Affairs conducts free and fair elections every August, where all the house members elect their Secretary and Deputy Secretary for a tenure of one year. The Secretary of the house in turn conducts elections for all groups, where all group members elect their Group leaders. The Secretaries and Group leaders are below 25 years of age.
