The campus has a medical center on its premises for the benefit of its students and personnel. Manipal Hospitals provides medical officers, which include a doctor and nurse. While the doctor is available during working hours, the nurse is on duty until 9 p.m. The medical center has basic life support and 10 beds for inpatient treatment. There are two wheelchairs available in every block of the university, and in case of any emergency, there is a 24-hour ambulance service available on site and in the hostels.

As the university also believes in the mental welfare of its students and staff, a counselling psychologist is available on campus, and a psychiatrist can be called on request by the in-house doctor if required.


When faculty go to classes, they don’t merely transmit knowledge; they keep a watchful eye for those telltale signs—a quiet student, a withdrawn student, a disinterested learner and see if the behavior is normal, is it an extension of a bored student fidgeting in the class, or is it some malaise that is yet undetected? They raise the red flags on the smallest suspicion. There is a growing awareness of mental and emotional health today, thanks to various social and mass media campaigns.  Student counsellors and counseling psychologists provide professional advice and therapy to the students and are available on campus. Students can write to the counsellors, share their concerns, and seek support.

It’s perfectly OK to ask for expert assistance if students find it tough and burdensome to handle things. A professional can assist in finding a positive solution to the problems.
