Travel

Visas:

If you are not an Indian citizen, you will need a visa to visit India. We will soon supply more information on which type of visa is required for international delegates.

How to Get to Ashoka:

Please note that if you are staying in the conference accommodation, you should go directly there to check in on Thursday afternoon. We will then arrange for cars to transport you from the accommodation to the campus, which is a very short distance.

The accommodation is at IIT Delhi Technopark Sonipat Campus. Please make sure that you go to the Sonipat location and not to the location in Hauz Khas. (this will take 1.5-2 hours from Delhi)

If you are traveling directly to the Ashoka campus, please see the directions below.

By Car:

Ashoka University is located on NH1 in District Sonepat, Haryana. The highway connects Delhi to Karnal, Ambala, Chandigarh, and J & K. The campus is a ten-minute drive from the Delhi-Karnal (Haryana) border.

If you drive from Delhi towards Panipat, the campus­, a red-bricked building is visible on your right. The campus is accessible only via Gate no. 2 of the Rajiv Gandhi Education City (1km ahead of Gate no. 1).

By Public Transport:

Ashoka University is about two hours away from Indira Gandhi International Airport. To reach the university campus directly from the airport, delegates may take the Airport line via Delhi Metro towards the New Delhi Railway Station and then switch over to the yellow line towards Samaypur Badli (Jahangirpuri). Regular shuttle service to and from the campus is available from Gate no. 3 of the Jahangirpuri metro station on the yellow line.

The updated shuttle schedule can be accessed here.

By Taxi:

As a faster and slightly easier way of reaching campus, you can use Ola, Uber, or any other registered cab service. The estimated cost of travel is between INR 1700-2000 from the airport or INR 700-1500 from Delhi.

Make sure that you use the address for Ashoka University in Sonepat (not Vasant Kunj): Plot No. 2, Rajiv Gandhi Education City, National Capital Region P.O.Rai, Sonepat Haryana-131029
