SUPPORT SERVICES for STUDENTS with DISABILITIES (S3D)
When you join
We provide you specific attention when you join. During your orientation, Dean-Students along with S3D will meet you for an extended session to provide you information regarding support services for you. We also listen to you about your concerns. Further, we will also reach out to you with a detailed questionnaire to understand your condition and the support services you will require.
Our aim is to ensure students with disabilities have equal access to their academic experience at IIT Madras by determining eligibility and approving reasonable accommodations. During your joining process, please ensure that you have uploaded a certificate of disability from the AUTHORIZED MEDICAL BOARD attached to one of the following: Vocational Rehabilitation Centre (VRC) for Physically Handicapped persons/ Special Employment Exchange for Physically Handicapped/ Government Hospital (District and State level).
When you are in the campus
Based on the official records available with us, Faculty members will be informed about your specific conditions and the accommodations you require in class room, examinations etc. You will also receive reasonable assistance in learning and living in the campus with the support mechanisms we are developing.
If you are a student with a disability, or think you may have a disability, and need accommodations please contact Support for Students with Disabilities in Dean-Students’ Office at the following address:
