Travel to Orsay

LAL is located on the Université d’Orsay Paris-Sud Campus, 25 kilometers south-west of Paris. The easiest way to reach the Orsay campus is by taking the RER B line to the Orsay-Ville station (35 minutes from Châtelet, around 3.45 Euros for a single ticket and 1 hour from Charles de Gaulle).

Tips: You will find maps, time tables, etc., about metro and RER here.

Please do not mistake the RER B station « Orsay-Ville » for the Paris metro station « Musée d’Orsay ». From Paris or the airports, you must buy a ticket specifically for « Orsay-Ville ». A Paris metro ticket is not sufficient !

From Charles de Gaulle airport

  • From Terminal 1: The RER station is not located inside Terminal 1. Take the CDGVAL light rail (5 minutes journey) to « Terminal 3-Roissypole ». CDGVAL station for Terminal 1 is located at level 2;
  • From Terminal 2: RER station is underneath Terminal 2, between Terminal 2C/2E and 2D/2F. Go to the rail station by walk (look for « Paris by train » or « Gare » signs) or board free shuttles;
