Main campus

The Kolkata campus of the Indian Statistical Institute is located in a sprawling 30-acre estate on the Barrackpore Trunk Road (B.T. Road) in the Baranagore suburb of Greater Kolkata. It consists of two approximately equal parts - the office complex and the residential complex, - separated by a public road. This road (Girish Chand Ghosh Street) connects B.T. Road with Gopal Lal Tagore Road, a road that runs along the western boundary of the main campus. The office complex bears door numbers 202, 203 and 204, and the residential complex, 205 and 206. There is a subway connecting the two parts of the campus - residential and office complexes; to move between the residential and office complexes, one does not have to come out on B.T. Road and enter the other campus.

How to reach ISI Kolkata Campus 

The ISI campus lies five kilometers North of the Shyambazar five-point crossing. If you are coming from the airport, drive towards Dunlop Bridge (via Nager Bazar and Chiria More). If you are coming from the downtown area or one of the railway stations, you will have to drive past Shyambazar and Chiria More. As you approach Dunlop Bridge, the boundary wall of the ISI campus will be visible on your left. The residential campus is at the Bus Stop called Bon Hooghly and the office campus is at the Bus Stop called ISI or Statistical. The Bus Stop further to the Statistical Bus Stop is Dunlop Bridge, which is an important landmark. Dunlop Bridge is also a useful way of describing the general destination when you are asking for directions. 

If you miss the ISI gates and reach the Dunlop Bridge intersection, take an about turn and walk down the B T Road. The ISI campus will be on your right. The first entrance on your right leads you straight into the R A Fisher Bhavan (Main Building).

If you are coming from the airport or one of the railway stations, it is better to hire a taxi from the prepaid taxi booth. The prepaid taxi fare is marginally higher than normal (approximately Rs. 220 from the airport, Rs. 180 from Howrah, and Rs. 120 from Sealdah) but it is a surer and safer mode of transport. While hiring a prepaid taxi, mention Dunlop Bridge as your destination.
