Living in Maha Sarakham

Living in Maha Sarakham will be an incredible life-time experience to all. Thai E-San culture, heritages, and many other aspects of life are waiting for all to explore.

Two campuses are approximately 10 km. apart. Public transportation services are running on a daily schedule.


     If you’re on Khamriang Campus and you need to go downtown or to the old campus, the easiest way is to catch a baht bus (songthaew).

     Stand by the side of the road and flag them down by extending your hand at waist level and moving it up and down.Use the buzzer to alert the driver when you want to get off. Cost is 8 baht no matter how far you go. You pay the driver when you get off.

     Both blue and yellow songthaews operate seven days a week from 6.00 am and 8.30 pm from near MSU Plaza (38), turning left at the Taakonyaang-Khamriang Road intersection then heading either to the downtown bus station or the old campus.


Blue songthaews operate on a continuous circular route starting on the canal side outside MSU Plaza (38). They travel to and turn around at the downtown bus station before returning to MSU Plaza.

Note : Some blue songthaews from MSU Plaza turn right out of the ring road and travel into Khamriang. Drivers are astute and will normally indicate to you if they are heading the ‘other’ way.


Yellow songthaews also operate on a continuous circular route starting on the canal side near MSU Plaza (38). They travel to the old campus, entering at the MSU Business School classrooms (12). They then do a clockwise lap (i.e. past buildings 12, 32, 41, 47, 21, 12) of the old campus before returning to MSU Plaza on the new campus.

Get off the songthaew after it turns into the old campus and use the pedestrian underpass to get to buildings 1 – 10 on the old campus map.


Campus trams are a free service for students and operate on the new campus. They travel a continuous lap of the campus and operate during normal university session times and hours. Visit building.msu for real time status.


Many students own a motorbike or motorcycle for more convenient transit. Chartered services such as Grab and private short-term rentals are available through mobile applications and social media group posts.


Curbside parking and parking lots for cars and motorbikes are available throughout the campus. Some gated parking spaces are designated for specific university vehicles.
