How to reach IISER, Pune?

IISER Pune is located in the Pashan region, surrounded by the beautiful Panchavati Hills and the CSIR-NCL campus on one side and the Aundh neighborhood on the other. If you're traveling by air, it's at most a 30-40 minute cab ride from Pune International Airport. If you're coming from Mumbai International Airport (Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport), it takes nearly 3 hours via the Bengaluru-Mumbai Highway. For those traveling by train, the nearest railway station is Pune Junction. Taxis and rented cars are available at the station and take only 20 minutes to reach the campus.
