Student Counseling Service
The Student Counseling Service is an integral part of IIT Jodhpur since 2008. Every year, it strives to ensure that every student gets to know the Institute in intricate details and to help absorb all that the opportunities that the Institute creates. It works towards making the transition of new Students from their homes to the Institute a memorable one. The objective of Student Counseling Service is to provide friendly support to the new Students for their well-being during their stay on the campus and for their personal & professional developments. In essence, the Student Counseling Service promotes the development of students along three aspects, namely:
(1) Academic: It provides information about different academic programs of the Institute, and suggests efficient time management and study skills,
(2) Extra-Curricular: It strives to develop talents in students, and encourages them to discover their extra-curricular interests/hobbies. Also, it provides an interface with the Institute activities, and provides a platform for interaction with the Institute; and
(3) Personal: It provides a cushion against homesickness, and assists in adjusting to the new environment (including concerns and difficulties arising during their stay at the Institute) by providing personalised guidance. Also, it provides psycho-education and confidential referral services to students.

The Student Counseling Service is headed by a Faculty Member, as the Chairperson of the Student Counseling Service Committee, and ably supported by Faculty Members, Staff Members and senior Students. And, a full-time Student Counselor plays the role of growth coach, well-being moderator and psychological counselor. Moreover, the Student Counseling Service strives to:
