Located in the heart of Taipei City, National Taiwan University is easily accessible via MRT, buses, bikes and more.


The Taipei MRT ( Mass Rapid Transit ) is a modern transportation system serving the city and its vicinities. Currently, there are ten routes. NTU is at the Gongguan station on the Danshui-Xindian line. Students can take the MRT at the Gongguan Station on Roosevelt Road. NTU Student ID Cards can function as MRT’s EASYCARD. You can add value directly onto your NTU Student ID Card at all MRT stations and convenience stores ( ex:7-Eleven ).
