Here is a map of the campus with

Train / bus

The name of the train station is "Chambéry Challes les eaux":

Once at the train station in Chambéry, you should take bus 2 or 2D toward Plage. (Bus 2 going to "Université Jacob" goes to the other campus on the other side of town...) Note that bus 2D is faster than bus 2.

There are regular buses during the day.


There is a very small airport in Chambéry, but you'll probably find more flight to Lyon Saint-Exupéry, Geneva or Grenoble.

There are several shuttles from Lyon Saint-Exupéry to Chambéry. Coming from Geneva takes a little longer and requires taking the train to Geneva center, and then to Chambéry.


From Chambéry, take exit "le Bourget du Lac, campus scientifique".


You can rent a bike for the week at the "velo station" just next to the train station. You can then ride to the campus on a very nice bicycle path. (Ask for a map and directions at the "velo station". It is about 12 kilometers...

For those who prefer more traditional / comfortable hotel, here are some possibilities:


Several places offer reasonable food around the campus:
