How far is IITM from the city?

IITM is located in the heart of the city, despite being a massive campus full of flora, fauna and all sorts of facilities. Here are some details:


In terms of transportation, it is only 10 km away from Chennai Airport, 12 km away from Chennai Central Railway station, and well connected by city buses, rickshaws and taxis. Chennai's local train station and metro are also very close by and accessible quickly from the college gates.


The campus can be accessed by students and visitors by three main gates: the main gate (at Adyar), the Taramani gate, and the Velachery Gate (which is close to Phoenix Mall, the largest mall in Chennai). 

Outside Campus

Outside IITM, within walking distance of the institute gates, lies several IT parks and tourist attractions. IITM's central location and excellent connectivity make exploring Chennai easy!
