Our Faculty of Engineering is situated within Kasetsart University (KU)’s Bangkhen campus, which is located at 50 Ngamwongwan Road, Lat Yao Sub-district, Chatuchak District, Bangkok 10900. It lies at the kilometer marker #14 on Phahonyothin Road, at the intersection of Phahonyothin and Ngamwongwan Roads.
The Campus can be reached by car and other forms of public transportation. From downtown Bangkok, the most convenient way is to take the sky train (BTS) to Kasetsart University Station (Sukhumvit Line: N13).
Bangkok has two airports – Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) and Don Mueang Airport (DMK). Kasetsart University is situated approximately 40 kilometers away from Suvarnabhumi International Airport and 18 kilometers away from Don Muang Airport.
From Suvarnabhumi International Airport to Kasetsart University
Upon your arrival in Bangkok at Suvarnabhumi Airport (pronounced “Sou-wan-na-poom”), after you have passed through immigration/passport control and baggage retrieval, you have the option of taking either a taxi or the Airport Rail Link. Kasetsart University is located about 40km from the airport and taking a taxi along the expressway is your fastest and most convenient option.
- Metered Taxi
Location: First floor
Take a ticket from the taxi queue and proceed to your taxi. The fare is charged according to the distance traveled, plus a surcharge of 50 Baht. If you use the expressway, you have to pay for the express toll fee. Your total journey from the airport to the Faculty of Engineering, Kasetsart University, will cost between 300 and 400 baht, depending on the traffic conditions.
Note: In the case that a taxi driver refuses to turn on his meter and insists on a fixed fare, we advise you to get out immediately and note down his license plate. You can report him to the passenger hotline at phone no.1584. It is compulsory for a taxi driver to turn on his meter during all passenger trips within the Bangkok metropolitan area. A taxi driver’s refusal to comply will result in him being fined and suspended.
- Airport Rail Link City Line
Location: Basement floor
The Airport Rail link operates daily from 06:00 to 24:00, with commuter City Line trains departing every 10 minutes during peak hours (06:00-09:00 and 16:00-20:00) and 15 minutes off peak and weekends. The City Line stops at 7 stations along the way and costs 45 Baht. The estimated travel time is 30 minutes.
The train ends at Phaya Thai station, which connects to the BTS (sky train) network. Take a BTS train to Kasetsart University station (Sukhumvit Line: N13), the journey takes approximately 20 minutes and the fare is 37 Baht.
From Kasetsart University BTS station to the Faculty of Engineering, there are several options you may take, as follows:

- Take a motorcycle taxi (cost around 20-30 Baht per trip). The motorcycle taxi queue (you will spot the group of riders wearing brightly coloured vests) can be found near the BTS station.
- If you are traveling in a group or carry large luggage bags, we suggest taking a metered taxi. The fare from Kasetsart University BTS station to the Faculty of Engineering is approximately 40-50 Baht.
- Airport Bus
The airport bus departs from the Suvarnabhumi Public Transportation Center. Regular buses run 24 hours a day.
Take bus number 555, which travels between Bangkok Airport and Rangsit. It drives north along Vibhavadi Road and passes Kasetsart University bus stop. The bus fare is 34 Baht.
From Kasetsart University bus stop, proceed to the nearest university gate, which is Vibhavadi Gate. Subsequently, you may take the campus Shuttle Bus Service Route No. 1 (free of charge) or a motorcycle taxi (cost around 20-30 Baht per trip). The motorcycle taxi queue can be found near the gate.
From Don Muang Airport to Kasetsart University
- Metered Taxi
A metered taxi is considered the fastest and most convenient option for getting from Don Muang Airport to the Faculty of Engineering, Kasetsart University. One ride generally costs 100 to 200 Baht on the meter, depending on the traffic conditions plus 50 Baht airport surcharge on top of the fare.
Once you’re out of baggage claim and through customs, follow the ‘Taxi’ signs on that floor towards the metered taxi stand. These taxis are regulated by the airport and they must use the meter.
Note: Do not go with any companies or people who may offer you a taxi while you are walking towards the metered taxi stand. This is often a scam and much more expensive than the metered taxis!

The bus operates daily, from 6:15 to 24:00 and leaves every 5 minutes. The bus stop is just outside once you exit customs. Get off at the Kasetsart University bus stop. The journey should take about 20-30 minutes. The ticket can be bought on board. So far the bus fare needs to be paid by cash only.
