International students face changes in nearly every aspect of their life when they leave home to study abroad. Changes in diet, sleeping patterns and climate may affect their health and well-being. Students should provide a copy of their medical records, including immunizations and vaccinations, to the health center when they arrive on campus. These records should show all medicines or treatments the student is using. This will help doctors, and other health care professionals provide safe care if the student has a new health problem.
Under normal circumstances, students are expected to keep family members informed of their illnesses. However, the Office of Student Life will notify the family in the event of serious illness or accident that requires extensive treatment or hospitalization.
All students of the University are covered under an insurance of INR 1 Lac applicable upon hospitalization of 24 hours or more.
