From the Central Railway Station there is the Suburban Railway (Proastiakos) that runs every one hour and connects the city with Kastelokampos area (10 min. walking from the Stavropoulos Dormitory), Rio and the University of Patras. The ticket cost is 1.40 Euros/ trip and 1 euro/ trip for students. There is also a monthly student card, which costs 10 Euros for students. With Proastiakos the passenger has the possibility to carry also his bike.
Proastiakos runs every 1 hour between 06.30 – 22.30 the route St. Andreas - Patras – Kastelokampos – Hospital – University and every 1 hour between 07.00 – 23.00 runs the route University – Hospital – Rio – Kastelokampos - Patras – St. Andreas.
From Kastelokampos Railway Station, OSE bus takes the passengers to Hospital and University and vise versa. With Proastiakos the passenger has the possibility to carry also his bike

By car:

The University is about 8 km from the city of Patras. Coming from the centre of Patras, follow Korinthou Street to its end. Then, you should follow Panepistimiou Street and after the indoor athletic stadium "Dimitrios Tofalos" you turn on the right, following the signs.

By bus:

The Number 6 bus for Rion, which leaves from the bus terminal that is located downtown, runs every ten to fifteen minutes and connects the University with the city. Since some buses go directly to the town of Rion, bypassing the campus, it is advisable to ask before boarding if the specific bus goes to Panepistimio (University).
