Getting to IIT Bombay
IIT Bombay is located in an area called Powai in the Central suburb called KanjurMarg in Mumbai. The best way of reaching there is by a combination of Road and Rail.
Mumbai has two main suburban train tracks respectively called after the Central and Western Railways. The suburban trains of Mumbai are called 'local' trains.
If you are on the Central Railway, get down at Kanjurmarg or Vikhroli and take an auto to IIT. The auto will take around Rs. 10 - 15. To board any of the buses, you'll have to walk slightly till a bus stop on the main L.B.S.Road and take any Andheri/Borivali bound bus. The fare is around Rs. 3.
If you are coming from the Western Railways, get down at Andheri and take any of the buses going to Mulund from the eastern side of the railway station. The fare would be roughly Rs. 6. Alternatively, you could take an auto which will take around Rs. 45 to IIT.
Getting to KReSIT within IIT
The new KReSIT building is now fully operational - one of the most impressive
structures in the IIT-Bombay campus! The KReSIT building is the first big
structure one comes across when entering IIT. Approximately a 5 minute walk
from the Main Gate, it is situated on the right side of the road after Hostel
10 and the wide road going right to the Y-Point gate.
It is equally close to
the Y-Point gate; turn right after entering the Campus, and take the first
left where you will see the Central School Ground. Continue walking and enter
the second gate on the right. You can see the white and blue KReSIT building
Note that the building is not connected to the long corridor that links
all the department building.
