Train and Air travel Information
Here are a few things that might be helpful during your visit to IITGN:

We are currently located on our permanent campus in Gandhinagar. However, it is to be noted that our old campus (where we were operating from in the past few years) is located in Ahmedabad city. We have an hourly shuttle service running from the old campus to permanent campus. Therefore, anybody reaching Ahmedabad by bus or train, it would be most convenient to reach our old campus at VGEC College, Chandkheda and then take the shuttle from there to the permanent campus. However, Ahmedabad airport is nearer to our permanent campus so anybody reaching Ahmedabad airport by flight, it is convenient to hire cab and directly come to the permanent campus.
