Arriving in Geneva

Arriving by plane

The airport is very close to downtown Geneva and transportation is very simple.

The first thing to do is to pick up a free ticket for the Geneva public transportation system ("Transports Publics Genevois - TPG") from the "Unireso" machine in the baggage claim area at the Arrival level. This Unireso ticket, offered by Geneva International Airport, allows you to use public transport in Geneva free for a period of 1h20m.

Then walk to the airport railway station and take the first train leaving. All trains stop at Geneva main station ("Gare Cornavin"), which is the first stop. The ride takes 6 minutes.

From the airport to the main University building (UniMail), you need to take the Tramway n°15, stop: Uni-Mail, once you arrive at Geneva main station ("Gare Cornavin").
