You can come to Somaiya Vidyavihar from there by crossing the overhead pedestrian bridge that goes above the railway tracks and come to the eastern side. From there take the same path as described in 'Access by train' section.

While coming from the Eastern Express highway, take a turn at the Amar-Mahal Signal towards Ghatkopar. (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. Instead climb down and take left at the signal towards Ghatkopar.)

Then take a left just after the second signal which will get you to the Somaiya Campus.

Somaiya Campus is located very near to Vidyavihar railway station which comes on the Central Railway of Mumbai, between Kurla and Ghatkopar. If you are planning to come from the Western Railway, like Churchgate, Bombay Central, you can change from the Western Railway to the Central Railway at Dadar station, and catch a slow local train from platform no. 1 or 2.

Please do not catch the train which is of Kurla destination as Vidyavihar is after Kurla. From western suburbs like Borivali, Andheri, you can also come to Dadar and change or also can travel by Metro upto Ghatkopar and then get into slow train heading towards CSTM from platform no.2, and get down at next station which is Vidyavihar. This will be very crowded during peak hours and in a span of 90 seconds you have to move to the opposite door from where you get into the train.

It will be convenient to reach Campus from Ghatkopar by taking an Autorickshaw to campus which is around 2 kms.If coming from Kalyan side, you may board any train which will go to Kurla, Dadar or CSMT and get down at Vidyavihar if in slow train or in Ghatkopar if coming by fast train.

If you are coming from Navi Mumbai side i.e. from Panvel, CBD, Vashi etc. by harbour trains, then get down at Tilak Nagar railway station which is between Chembur and Kurla. From this station, campus is at a distance of about 1.0 KM with minimum fare by auto rickshaw. 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 (East), and they will drop you at the entrance of the Somaiya Vidyanagar campus.
