The Chitkara University timings are 9 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon, the university is situated on chandigarh Patiala highway so you need to plan and travel accordingly. I travel like most of the students of the university from the transport that the university provides, that personally for me is very suitable and many other students and staff also prefer this mode of travel. As it runs smoothly and saves you the trouble of coming and going on your own which can get a bit tuff as it’s a bit far. Also it helps you avoid travelling in peak traffic hours which can get tyring, saves you form the hassle of parking and stuff too. But few studets travel by their own vehicles too, so you can carpool once you get to know each other and if you are coming from the same area. The other thing is that you cannot step out of the university before four without a gate pass and this pass needs to be signed by your parents and teachers, that’s another reason that I feel its best to travel by the university bus. I find the university transpot safe and comfortable mode of travel. Just carry your headphones and listen to your fav music enroute.
