The Grenoble campus is easily reachable via the tram of Grenoble (lines B and C, stop at 'Bibliothèques Universitaires' and walk for two hundred meters). Alternatively, there are some free car parking spots at the rue de la Chimie.

The tram line B crosses the center of town and comes from the train station as well as the airport bus final stop (see the map). Trams run very frequently between 5:00am and 00:30am. Tickets have to be purchased before boarding the tram at the price of 1.40 euros approximately. The tram line C connects directly the student accomodation by a 15 minute ride.

Grenoble is very easily reached by train from Paris (Paris Gare de Lyon station) and Lyon (Lyon Part-Dieu station). From Paris to Grenoble, the TGV (high-speed train) runs approximately 7 times a day and lasts 3 hours. Booking of your train ticket is mandatory. Relevant booking page is tgv-europe.

Grenoble is served by both the Grenoble airport (GNB) and the Lyon airport (LYS). The former, GNB, has only charter service while LYS has very frequent services to all over Europe with both regular and low-cost airlines (see the french web page, no english version is available for the moment). Lyon airport is connected by shuttle buses to the main Grenoble train station (see the timetable). Attendees from overseas should consider connecting through one of the main European airport hubs.
