By plane or train:
Airport to Lausanne Main Station
From the Swiss airports, you can easily get to Lausanne by train. From the Geneva Airport,
there are about 5 trains per hour. The fastest is the InterCity (IC) which
takes 42 minutes for the journey. From Zürich Airport, the journey takes 2h32
in the best case (about 2 trains per hour).
Lausanne Main Station to LGG
- Go to the metro station located just in front of the train station called
M2 (the new metro line in Lausanne).
- Take the metro uphill, in the direction called "Croisettes" and get off in
the first stop called "Lausanne-Flon".
- There, transfer to what is called the TSOL or M1 (departures every 10 minutes)
, with the same ticket. Get off at the EPFL station (the journey from the
train station to the EPFL station is approx. 30 minutes long).
- From the EPFL station, count 10 minutes to reach the School of Computer and
Communication Sciences (Faculté Informatique et Communication), where is located the LGG.
An interactive map
of the EPFL could help you to prepare your travel.
Train timetables can be found on the CFF
Approximately 10 kms before Lausanne, you will have the choice between
two directions. Take "Lausanne Sud" and then follow the "UNIL - EPFL" exit.
You are now on the "Route du Lac"; continue straight-ahead. A few hundred meters
later, you will see a street on your right indicating "UNIL Sorge, UNIL-EPFL
Livraisons". Don't take this street! Instead, take the next one which is located
just before a traffic light. You should see a strange statue within a traffic
circle. Turn around the circle (3/4 round). Building BC is the last building on your right.
You have to take the direction
Geneva until you find a sign indicating "Lausanne Sud". Then proceed as above.

website can be helpful too.
