Meet and Greet Package
The OIR organizes airport pickup for those students who request such facility. Students who wish to avail this facility have to pay the "Meet and Greet package" fee at the time of paying the tuition fee. This fee is non-refundable, non-transferable under any circumstances. Also the students have to intimate their itinerary atleast a week in advance to the OIR; otherwise the OIR will not be responsible for any lapse in the airport pickup. The arriving students will be picked up by their senior international students studying at SRM and will assist them till they get into the hostel room.
SRM University has got its own Medical College and multi-specialty hospital inside the campus. It is just 500 meters from the SRM International Hostel. 24 x 7 emergency service is available at SRM Hospital with Ambulance facility. Students can avail the medical facilities in the hospital at concessional charges.
Besides the hospital, Office of International Relations (OIR) has made arrangements with few private and public insurance companies for obtaining health insurance policy. These policies are for cashless hospitalization for a nominal annual premium charged to the students. The international students must apply for the health insurance policy with any one of these companies within a week of their arrival to SRM University.
Any student who already carries equivalent medical insurance coverage may apply to OIR for a waiver instead of purchasing this insurance; such students should be prepared to pay in advance for any medical care and seek reimbursement from their insurer.
