How to reach Palaiseau

From Charles de Gaulle airport: Take the RER B to Massy-Palaiseau or Lozere. About 1 hour and 30 min trip.

From Orly airport: Take the train to Antony and then the RER B to Massy-Palaiseau or Lozere. About 30 min trip in total.

How to reach the Campus from Palaiseau

The most convenient way is by bus. You should take the line TransEssonne 91-06, which leaves from Massy-Palaiseau in front of the RER B station. The schedule is here. It's best to exit at the third stop, marked as "2 Les Laboratoires" on this map.

Otherwise, you can come to the RER B station of Lozere, and then on foot. The walk is not too long, about 10-15 minutes, but it is quite challenging, because it is all uphill. See the map of the walk.

Another possibility is to come by taxi. All the hotels indicated below are within 10-15 minutes by taxi. We recommend that you don't let your taxi driver drop you at the main entrance ("Accueil Principal", Point P5 in the map of the campus) as it is about 10-15 min. walk from LIX. Instead, ask him to drive you till the lab LIX (Aile 0). Remember to take with you this map in case you need to show it to the taxi driver.
