Late arrivals:  If you cannot arrive in the time window given for your program due to extenuating circumstances such as exams, please don't just show up late.  Your housing will be held for you only if you inform us in advance of your late arrival and clear this with your VSRP program coordinator.

Early departures:  If you need to leave early for any reason, you must have the permission of your VSRP program coordinator. 

Booking tickets:  Please note the arrival and departure "windows" and make sure your train/airplane arrivals are within this window.  Note that it takes ~2 hours to reach TIFR from the airport and ~1 hour from the train stations.  The Guest House desk, where you will collect your key and get your room assignment, works 24/7, so you may arrive at TIFR at any time in the arrival window for your program.  Checkout is mandatory by the end of the departure window.

The minimum residence time to qualify for award of the VSRP programme certificate is 8 weeks for NSF/STCS and 4 weeks for Mathematics.
