SOMAIYA VIDYAVIHAR
How To Reach Us

Access by Train:

Somaiya Campus is located very near to Vidyavihar railway station which comes on the Central Railway track, between Kurla and Ghatkopar. If you are planning to come from the Western Railway side, you can change from the Western Railway to the Central Railway at Dadar station, and catch a slow local train from platform no. 1. Please do not catch the train whose final destination is Kurla. Those trains terminate at Kurla and you will not be able to come to Vidyavihar.

 

If you are coming from the suburban side of Mumbai from the Central Railway, then please note that the trains are usually crowded in the mornings during weekdays for arrival. Please board the slow trains whose destinations are Dadar or CST.

 

Please get down from the eastern side of the platform.

 

The average time period between two consecutive trains in the central side is approximately 7 minutes. However if the trains are late, then the next train to arrive may take a long time. It takes a minimum of fifteen minutes by walking from the Vidyavihar railway station to the college. Auto-rickshaws (3 seater vehicles) are available for hire outside the Vidyavihar station, and they take you to the outside of the Somaiya Vidyanagar campus.

(When coming from Thane do not take the bridge after Vashi cross road instead turn right underneath the bridge at the Amar-Mahal signal. If coming from Dadar side, after crossing Kurla signal take the next bridge and keep left. Do not take the bridge that starts atop this bridge on the right.
