Student Well-being

SiliconTech creates a learning environment that promotes student well-being and growth. The campus upholds safety, compassion, and care for each other as inalienable values.

There are on-campus weekly doctor visits, round-the-clock ambulance service, and a counseling cell for psychosocial support. SiliconTech has stringent anti-ragging and POSH policies and a responsive grievance redressal mechanism.

The culture of camaraderie, ready support, and personalized attention at SiliconTech ensures that students are happy and engaged. SiliconTech respects the differences and uniqueness of every individual and strives to ensure equal opportunities for all.

Healthcare on Campus

A general physician and a gynecologist visit the campus twice a week for consultations. Students have to pay a nominal consultation fee of Rs.10. The on-campus Residence Clinic stocks the necessary first aid medicines.

In case of a chronic illness, students should inform their Faculty Advisors about the symptoms and any immediate assistance required. If there is a serious health condition or an infectious disease, students should inform the warden, who will take necessary action with the doctor’s approval.

There is a 24*7 ambulance facility for emergency use. Students will have to bear the medical expenses and the ambulance charges, if any, and deposit a copy of the prescription to the Residence Office for future reference.

Counselling Cell

SiliconTech established the Counselling Cell on 1 August 2017 to support the mental health and well-being of students. Aimed at the holistic development of an individual, the Cell provides counseling services to help students address stress-related issues due to academics, career, or interpersonal relationships.

The campus has one full-time and one part-time counselor for students to reach out to six days a week. Counseling services are also available to the campus staff.

Ragging Free Campus

SiliconTech is a ragging-free campus. Students are prohibited from indulging in any disorderly conduct, whether by words, spoken or written, or by an act of teasing, treating, or being rude to others.

Students should abstain from any activity which causes or are likely to cause annoyance, hardship, or psychological harm or raise fear or apprehension in any other student, junior or senior. Likewise, no students can ask their fellow college mates to do anything that will cause them shame or embarrassment and adversely affect their physique or mental health.

Acts of ragging inside or outside the campus are punishable under the Police Act and will be immediately reported to the police. Refer to the ‘Student Handbook’ for more details.

Gender Sensitive Campus

SiliconTech is committed to building a community where students, teachers, and non-teaching staff can work together in an environment free of violence, harassment, exploitation, and intimidation.

We nurture a safe and inclusive campus committed to preventing all forms of gender violence, sexual harassment, and discrimination based on sex/gender.

The Institute strongly supports gender equality and opposes any form of gender discrimination and violence. SiliconTech upholds the constitutionally mandated Vishaka Committee guidelines and has a specific policy on the prevention of sexual harassment.

Grievance Redressal

Students can reach out to their Faculty Advisors for immediate assistance and further guidance in case of any grievance. A grievance can be about a situation, process, or one or more persons.

The student should approach the Dean, Administration and Student Affairs, for further assistance if the grievance is not addressed within five days. The Dean, Administration and Student Affairs, will convene a Grievance Committee and appropriately deal with the grievance(s), as per our prescribed norms.

Live and learn in the best environment.
