It’s a pretty picturesque location, up a hill and though it falls in the outskirts of Pune, it cannot be said to be inaccessible. PMT buses try going somewhere near the college i.e they drop you about a kilometer and half away from college. Frequency is also poor, thus bikes and cars are a must.
Kahibai Navale COE shares the campus with Sinhgad COE and about 50 other colleges. Infrastructure is very impressive. They have a huge campus, with nice, airy classrooms. There is wifi internet connectivity throughout the campus. There are good facilities for sports and cultural activities.
