Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology (Deemed University) - About the DRC

Welcome to the Disability Resource Center

The Disability Resource Center (DRC) at the TIETU offers a variety of services for students with documented disabilities, including learning disabilities, deaf/hard of hearing, blind/low vision, mobility limitations, mental health difficulties (depression, anxiety etc.) and other medical disabilities.

We invite and encourage both prospective and enrolled students as well as the staff to learn more about our services by going to TIETU website (http://www.thapar.edu) to make an appointment. Please help us to help yourself.

Getting Started

  • 1). To self-identify as a student with a disability means that you are the person to disclose to the DRC office that you have a disability and that you require services.
  • 2). The decision whether to self-identify or not is a very personal one. Individuals with disabilities are welcome to discuss their concerns with the DRC staff. A decision to self-identify is understood and respected.
  • 3). Identification of needs can help to ensure that arrangements and accommodation can be made before your arrival. The more time the DRC staff has to make these arrangements, the easier the transition to TIETU will be.
