Necessary Things to buy for hostels

  • Scientific Calculator – fx 991 ES (preferably) or Fx 991-MS. You will require this more than your books for next four years. So, it is better to buy it from home only.

  • A well-conditioned medium size college bag. Forget about all the movie stuffs you will have to carry much more here. In later stages laptop will be the thing you will be carrying the most after Bedsheets.

  • But no special need of buying daily stuff like bucket, mug and mattresses from home as they will be available to buy inside the campus on the day of registration. Also, it is good to buy from there only.

  • Some locks and keys as you will have to lock your luggage on the first day as it will be very busy. After that it will be ok …..


This institute has a lot to offer for its students, in terms of academics, co-curricular and extracurricular opportunities. With the increased opportunities, often come related problems like stress, anxiety or depression. On face value, these problems might seem trivial, but they end up affecting us in a negative manner. Hence, we should reach out for help. There is nothing to lose.
IIT Ropar houses a great counselling cell consisting of excellent counsellers. Here is an attached PDF for details about IIT Ropar's Counselling cell.


Mentoring Code of Conduct

The code of conduct is designed to establish a set of guidelines to create a benchmark for ethics and good practice and ensure that mentors conduct their practice in a professional yet, friendly and ethical manner. The code is also meant to inform mentees, and to promote public confidence in the Institute Student Mentorship Program (ISMP) as a process for personal and professional development.

Code of Conduct

  • Commit to the relationship and the ISMP for one full academic year.

  • Attend and actively participate in all mentoring training and special events, and in the long run suggest and execute any idea relevant to the ISMP.

  • Trust and confidentiality are backbone of successful mentoring and must be maintained at all times. Be careful about sensitive issues. A mentee’s personal life may be difficult to discuss early in the relationship.

  • Should abide to all rules set up by the Proctorial Committee during the initial interaction and period. All meetings with freshers should happen in open and visible regions and not in any closed rooms.

  • No illegal drugs / alcohol / tobacco should be promoted or consumed within the mentorship activities / meetings.

  • Never use physical discipline / abusive language / ultimatums as a tool for putting your point across. Any instance of ragging during mentorship activities is strictly forbidden and will be reported to concerned authorities.

  • Failure to comply or an outright violation of any of the above may lead to termination from the ISMP for all purposes.
