The KSOM is located at a distance of about 12Kms from the city centre (train/bus Stations) situated off the Kozhikode-Medical College-Kunnamangalam bus route. If you choose to travel from the city to KSOM by bus, catch one from the Paalayam Bus Station (also known as the Old Bus Stand) going in the above route (there is a bus in about every 10 minutes) and get down at a bus stop called `Mundikkalthazham’ which is a few stops after the more prominent Medical College Bus Stop. The KSOM is by the side of a bye lane leading to Peringolam from this bus stop and at a distance of about 2Kms. Alternatively you can take a bus from the Kunnamangalam Bus Station to `Peringolam’ and walk up a hill to reach KSOM. The ever so honest auto drivers of Kozhikode tend to charge about Rs. 200/- for their service from the city centre to KSOM(meter reading may not apply to this `beyond the city limits' ride!) during regular hours (Between 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m.).
