It is a constant endeavour of Ahmedabad University to offer to its students more and varied services that not only support them but also make their stay at the University as comfortable and fruitful as possible. We wish to come closer to our students; more so to those who are physically distanced from their families in order to pursue their education in Ahmedabad. A concrete step in this direction resulted in the form of a student services center, the Office of Dean of Students. The Office of Dean of Students or ODS provides student services and supports a vibrant student life on campus.
ODS is a place where our students turn to for various queries, support, information, guidance and counselling. It runs the Health Centre, SSETU or our wellness centre, Clubs and Associations, Housing and Dining Services, and other activities on the campus.
