The Counselling Service strives to ensure the welfare of the students by providing them emotional, academic and financial assistance. By looking after your well-being, the Service tries to ensure that IITK is not just an institute, but a home away from home for you. The Service consists of a team of professional counsellors and a dedicated group of student volunteers and faculty advisors working in two primary arms: one concentrates on acclimatizing the freshmen to the new environment, and the other deals with mental health issues of the students.
