How To Reach CUSAT

Kochi (erstwhile Cochin) is well connected by Air, Rail, Road and Sea

By Air
The Cochin International Airport located at Nedumbassery is about 26 km and a mere 30 minutes drive from the Main Campus of CUSAT.

By  Rail
The Railway Station at Alwaye (Aluva) is 13 kms north of the Main Campus and has the convenience of an adjacent Bus Station, from where very frequent City Buses bound for Ernakulam and beyond will take you in 15 minutes to CUSAT bus-stop at Kalamassery. Meto train facility is also available from Ernakulam and Aluva to Cochin University Metro station.  Auto-rickshaws are available at the South Kalamassery bus stop for transport to the Main Campus, 1 km away.

Alternatively, one may alight at Ernakulam Town (North) or Ernakulam Junction (South)  Railway Stations, both of which are on the southern side of the Main Campus. However, note that all trains will not stop at both the stations. Buses bound for Alwaye are available from nearby bus stops for travel to South Kalamassery (13 kms).

The Lakeside Campus is only 2 km from the Ernakulam Junction (South) Railway Station.

By Road
All long distance KSRTC and inter-state buses plying along National Highway 47 to Ernakulam from north have a ‘Request Bus Stop’ at CUSAT bus-stop. If travelling by City Buses, the Bus stop nearest to the Main Campus is South Kalamassery.

If travelling from the South, you may alight at Vyttila Mobility Hub  and then take a City Bus bound to Alwaye  to step down at  South Kalamassery.

By Sea
The Cochin Port is situated on Willington Island, which faces the City (Lakeside) Campus and is just across the adjoining back waters.
