IIT Dharwad is currently functioning from the transit campus within the Water and Land Management Institute (WALMI) which lies on NH 48 (PB Road) in Belur, 13 km from the heart of Dharwad city, towards Belgaum.
Since the campus is situated on NH 48 connecting Mumbai (546 km, 10.5-12 hours approx) and Bengaluru (436 km, 8-9 hours approx), you can catch a bus to reach the campus from these places. The
buses from these cities drop you right in front of the campus if you ask for a request stop.
Dharwad is connected to all the major cities of the country like Bangalore (428 km), Mumbai (559 km), Delhi (2127 km), Kolkata (1931 km), Chennai (832 km) and Hyderabad (683 km) by rail. 20 km
away from Dharwad towards Bengaluru lies Hubballi, a major railway junction providing better connectivity.
There are three airports located near the campus – Hubballi Airport (30 km), Belgaum Airport (75 km) and Dabolim Airport, Goa (166 km). While there are flights to/from Hubballi and Belgaum to all
the major south Indian cities, the Goa Airport is better connected to all the major cities of the country.
