How to access the University by road

Going to CERLA and MACC'S conference center

The conference center is just a few hundred meters away from subway station "Cité Scientifique". When you go out of "Cité Scientifique" subway station,

you can go left to CERLA for the advance registration on May 31, from 16:30 to 19:30 (red) or to Ascotel and MACC's conference center (green), taking a shortcut:

Here is what the entrance to CERLA (a.k.a. the "Camembert wooden box") looks like...

Here is the start of the green path starting in front of the station. This shortcut

will take you to this road. Follow it turning left :

And you will shortly arrive at Ascotel hotel (left) and MACC's conference center (right).

Here is a Google map for you to experiment, showing (A) subway station, (B) Ascotel hotel and MACC's conference center. Google does not know about the shortcut.

Student rooms

The student halls are located behind Ascotel hotel (click to get the pdf file). The reception office is located at the lower corner of building M and is open from 07:00 to 20:30 on weekdays. After 20:30 and on week-ends, you can get the keys from a night watchman who is located inside the main entrance hall of building M. He is constantly there, except perhaps temporarily during rounds. Knock on the main entrance door to indicate your presence and be allowed inside.
