How to reach ISI Kolkata Campus

The ISI campus lies five kilometers North of the Shyambazar five-point crossing. If you are coming from the airport, drive towards Dunlop Bridge (via Nager Bazar and Chiria More). If you are coming from the down town area or one of the railway stations, you will have to drive past Shyambazar and Chiria More. As you approach Dunlop Bridge, the boundary wall of the ISI campus will be visible on your left. The residential campus is at the Bus Stop called Bon Hooghly and the office campus is at the Bus Stop called ISI or Statistical. The Bus Stop further to the Statistical Bus Stop is Dunlop Bridge, which is an important landmark. Dunlop Bridge is also a useful way of describing the general destination when you are asking for directions.

If you miss the ISI gates and reach the Dunlop Bridge intersection, take an about turn and walk down the B. T. Road. The ISI campus will be on your right. The first entrance on your right leads you straight into the R A Fisher Bhavan (Main Building).


There are a large number of buses and minibuses that pass by the Institute campus. Almost any bus that goes to Dunlop Bridge passes by the ISI gates. The buses that pass by the ISI gates are 32A, 34B/1, 78, 78/1, 201, 214, 230, 234, DN9, DN9/1, 9A, 20, S11, S32, GL32, GLS32, and SS4. The minibuses plying from Howrah to Nimta/Belgharia, from BBD Bag to Dunlop Bridge, and from Babughat to Sodepur/khardah/New Barrackpore, from Garia/Naktala to Belurmath, Garia/Goalpark to Dakhineshwar and many more go past the ISI gates before reaching Dunlop Bridge. While riding the bus from the city, the major bus stops on your way (from South to North) would be Shyambazar, Chiria More, Sinthi More and Tobin Road. The Bon Hooghly Bus Stop is just North of the Bus Stop at Ananya Cinema. This is where you have to get down in order to enter the residential campus. The next Bus Stop is ISI/Statistical, which is located just outside the entrance of the main office campus at 203, B.T. Road.


If you are coming from the airport or one of the railway stations, it is better to hire a taxi from the prepaid taxi booth. The prepaid taxi fare is marginally higher than normal (approximately Rs. 250 from the airport, Rs. 200 from Howrah, and Rs. 180 from Sealdah) but it is a surer and safer mode of transport. While hiring a prepaid taxi, mention Dunlop Bridge as your destination.
