Everyone has an easy time navigating the KNUST campus. One can find numerous ways to board a car to come to campus when they arrive at Tech Junction, the primary transportation hub just outside the main gate of this prominent university. The first choice is to enter campus using a private vehicle through any of our gates. On the main KNUST campus, private automobiles are welcome without any restrictions.
Locate our transport shuttles and officially designated campus taxi cabs, which are the only commercial vehicle types permitted into the main campus for security reasons.
Third, if you choose to walk, you can do so directly to and through any area of campus.
The final option is to board any commercial vehicle travelling through campus and get off at Continental Roundabout before continuing on to Ayeduase New Site, Kotei surroundings.
To get to your preferred location using these choices, however, you will need to either walk or get on a commercial vehicle that is registered on campus.
NB: Commercial vehicles APART from KNUST shuttles and KNUST-registered and stamped taxis are NOT ALLOWED to enter the main campus area.
The cost of transportation varies depending on the distance to Kumasi and the type of vehicle available from various cities, towns, and villages. Bus transportation from Accra to Kumasi ranges in price from GHC 80.00 to GHC 105 for minibuses, big and small Yutong buses, STC, and VIP buses.
