TCS with its new portal – Campus Commune

Hi guys, today we will see the new portal for the students and the budding Engineers. Tata Consultancy Services, the mass recruiter of India has stepped into the new paradigm of Socializing with its future company peoples, helping them with a new help desk for sharing and discussing their idea’s.


What the Campus Commune does?

The Corporate Giant has emerged with a new social networking site, absolutely meant for the purpose of sharing the technical ideas and discussing other public issues.

Who can register for Campus Commune?

If you are a college student and TCS comes for your college its well and good you will be provided an appropriate link to join into the Campus Commune. If TCS does not come to your college that doesn’t matter you can approach TCS directly and you have a separate registering for that (there are appropriate links in the site for that as shown in the snap).

The corporate has come up with this may be the reason that people wasting time in the social networking sites, so to make their time fruitful to some extent this site may solve the purpose. Besides, it may be a mark for the candidates participating in the Campus Commune and that degree of participation may prove their interest level and frequency for visiting the Campus Commune.

But the problem with the site is that, the session that is created when you log in is very short expiring within hours. The site is administered in a standard way such that forum questions are approved only after it is satisfying the administrators of the site. It is quite useful for the users to share their ideas, besides the important thing is that the TCS employee’s are participating answering the students questions. This would be much more helpful for the students blowing away the mist of what is happening inside the company, and share the worker’s experience.

Besides the Campus commune is only a part of the TCS’s next step. It provides a way for the applicants to apply and upload their details online and easing the interview process, there are also facilities for tracing your applications in the site. And this is the link to register to the site Here you can register and can proceed.


The Features of Campus Commune is that :

  • You can ask your questions, and this one is like a general forum answered by others
  • There will be debates and polls in which you can participate, but you cannot create a new thread or topic in poll or debate
  • There are challenges such as solving puzzles etc


The attractive feature of the site is that if you use Campus Commune you will be awarded points for your participation, and that may be a metric for the officials to measure your participation and interest.

If you have any problems in registering in the NextStep you can comment.If you are an engineering student, this article may be useful for choosing your area of Interest.

    i have registered myself on campus commune but i have lost my id and password.please help me out with this issue as soon as possible

    1. Balaji

      without your user ID, you cant recover your account sangita, Try to search the mail which you got from TCS while you get registered, you surely find your user ID on your mail inbox, If you got the user ID means.. you surely recover your password by using “forget password” option, else you can register a new account with it, if you still face a problem.. feel free and comment below…

  2. jai

    sir while i was regisrtring for my campus portal by mistake i wrote a wrong email id so now i cannot access my account as i do not know my password & as i have not yet registered even once i cannot even use the facility of forget password…and as my account has been created once the portal is not allowing me to create a new one…plz help me with this issue..!!!

    1. webmaster

      No formalities… We are your friends… 🙂 Jai, try to register a new account. Can you please explain what it is asking for. Probably it must say that the name was already registered. Is it so? Please explain what does it ask for when you go for a new account?

  3. bharathi

    i did mistake in my name.can i change it? plz help me.

    1. webmaster

      Sorry bharathi, that is the crucial thing in TCS Portal. We cannot change our name, date of birth, mother’s maiden name in the TCS portal. One choice is that you can make a new registry and can get a new account.

  4. pavani

    sir..I registered in codevita challenge in campus commune.I am the team leader of my team.By mistake,i entered a wrong CT number of one of my teammate while forming the team.I could nt find any editing option in the codevita block,so not able to correct the CT,what I have to do to get it corrected sir??Reply me as early as possible with this me out with this sir…

    1. webmaster

      Pavani, the TCS Portal doesn’t provide us ample facilities. Once a CT is registered it wont take the another one. So one whose name is registered i mean the CT cant participate. Or else there is one way, if you are studying in a college. Hope that you are currently pursuing your final years. You can request your college Placement Cell to request to TCS, you can individually post this problem in TCS campus commune Helpline. They will post appropriate reply in a day or two.

  5. Akshata chintawar

  6. Akshata chintawar

    sir i m not able to access launch campus commune. Please give me a solution for this .I hve tried with google chrome ,internet explorer also but still its not please tell me how to access it i want to register for code vita. i am awaiting for ur reply

    1. webmaster

      Akshata Chintawar, you no need to access campus commune to register code vita. The code vita registration is carried out in a separate web site so you can start your code vita registration here. For that you need a soft copy of your photo. And your CT number. After this you can form your team for code vita after registration. You mentioned that you cannot access campus commune, can you elaborate your problem, is your browser showing “Unsafe to visit this site add exception”??

  7. Akshata chintawar

    yes sir it is showing certificate navigation error

    1. webmaster

      I have attached a link to this comment Akshata, take a look. Hope it will help u…

  8. vanessa

    i registered at tcscodevita and at the beginnng itself wrote down the ct no. of my teammates. they havent registered yet but will do it soon. will they automatically come under my team once they register?

    1. webmaster

      Ya this is rather a tricky way to get your team, but this depends on luck. When you form team you would be prompted for two things one is username of your mate and the ct number. Here if your user name is unique, provided no one took that username before. you are safe, now if you dont have your username you are in prob… So do the registration as soon as possible since all around have started registering for the competition so make it asap…

  9. tathagat

    sir i have lost my user id .i am not able to find it in email…please help

    1. webmaster

      Sorry tathagat, these are the drawbacks in the site, they don’t send any notification mails. but only if you remember the username you can get into it… Post your problem in helpline in campus commune they may help…

  10. Akshata chintawar

    Sir as per linked provided by you i have done the steps for fixing problem of browsers to access campus commune but still it is showing blank page now so sir please help me

    1. webmaster

      which browser are u using? There might be a problem with your browser, try in a different browsers or if same problem persists, reinstall the browser after uninstalling the old one.

  11. keerthi karunakaran

    hello sir…iam very keen to participate in codevita..but the problem is, iam unable to access both campus commune and code vita though i have registered in tcsnextstep .Through the link that u have mentioned above, i have gone through all the steps in diffeent browsers, but unable to acesss as it shows a blank page. Please help me.

    1. webmaster

      There may be problem with your system, do u experience generally some problems while using internet?

      1. keerthi karunakaran

        no sir, i didnt experience any problem while accessing internet in my system and i have seen even my friends facing the same problem.

  12. keerthi karunakaran

    sir , i got registered in campus commune sucessfully now after frequent attempts but the problem is iam unable to register in codevita .

    1. webmaster

      What problem does it show? The same browser problem??

      1. keerthi karunakaran

        I have tried in different browsers sir, but it shows that ” please register in next step”

        1. webmaster

          Probably you must have problem with the CT number or something else in data entry. You might have entered some data wrongly. Recheck them once.

  13. bhagyalakshmi

    hi i have registered myself on campus commune but i have lost my id and password.please help me out with this issue as soon as possible

    1. webmaster

      You would have got a mail when you have registered. Search for the mail, otherwise use forget password to reset password. When you go for this option you would be prompted for a security question that was compulsory when you signed in for campus commune. If you forget that question again you are helpless. So only if you know the security questions you can proceed with a new password.

  14. Nandita

    How to own a community in campus commune?

    1. webmaster

      HI Nandita, I think students cannot create communities in Campus Commune. That power solely lies with the admin and the people who are in TCS and are a member of Campus Commune.

      1. Nandita

        Thank u so much fr ur reply!!

        1. webmaster

          Welcome Nandita… 🙂

    1. webmaster

      it must be problem with the flash player. So try it with different browser or refresh the page. You must be getting white space having the page loaded??

  16. Bravin Ninja

    Hi friends…. I have registered in Campus commune. It was working for me few days but now I can’t able to see my campus commune page. It shows Error code 500 and a comment “Sorry But Something went wrong”. Can anyone please help me with this problem?

    Thanks in advance for your reply….

    1. webmaster

      Do you get this same error many times?? Or do you get it once or twice. Coz this may be the prob with the TCS Server. So they may pop up with such things.

      1. Bravin Ninja

        Now I can access my Campus commune page sir. I think the problem is with my Laptop. I tried with different browsers but it was not working. Now I can get that page in my desktop computer. I am happy sir… Thank you….

        1. webmaster

          Welcome Bravin… 🙂

  17. Bravin Ninja

    I have registered my address in TCS portal at the time of campus selection as 37A/13.
    But in my Ration card my house number is printed as 37/A13. When I register in NSR if I give my house number as 37/A13 then any problem will come from TCS due to the mismatch of house number?? I have not yet registered in NSR because of this confusion. Please clarify my doubt friend….

    1. webmaster

      No problem Bravin, you have ways to edit the address in next step. So you can edit your address and then proceed with the NSR registration. If you still have problem, comment.

      1. Bravin Ninja

        There are no options available to edit my address in next step sir. I can only get my application form as a pdf file. I hope there will be no big problem will come in this address change. But I want to be perfect. Please let me know if there any way to change the address in Nextstep. Now I am going to register with NSR as 37/A13 because my address proofs are having the house number like this. Is that ok sir?? Thank you….

        1. webmaster

          K Bravin. Go on. Think these stuff is not that much. Another thing, are you a campus applicant or a direct applicant? If you are a campus applicant, then no problem.

          1. Bravin Ninja

            I am a campus applicant sir. I have registered in NSR yesterday. Next week going to the POS for second step registration. Thank you for your replies.

  18. Rohit

    sir, is it compulsory to upload a team photograph for a team to get registered…?

    1. webmaster

      No, rohit. The necessity for team photograph is that if your Team wins to post that in TCS site or such publishing purposes they collect photos. So do upload it. Today is last day, make it ASAP.
