The mandate of the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs is to coordinate and regulate all the above aspects of student life at IIT Ropar. This is carried out primarily through two bodies:
1. The Hostels Coordinating Unit ( HCU )
2. The Students Council
The HCU is under the charge of Chairman. He coordinates and interfaces with the Council of Wardens. All of these functionaries are members of faculty of IIT Ropar. Day to day matters in the hostels are looked after by the Hall Manager and by an elected Hostel Council of students led by the Hostel General Secretary.
The common thread that runs throughout the Division of Student Affairs is a commitment to enable all students to participate in an engaging, healthy, and active learning environment during their time at IIT Ropar . A key role is played in coordinating the activities and in representing the students by an apex group of elected General Secretaries.
