Directions to the Institute

By Train and Tram

From the main station (Zürich HB) take tram number 10 (not the S10 train) from the tram stop called "Zürich, Bahnhofplatz/HB" in the direction of the airport (Flughafen) and get out at "Zürich, Universität Irchel" (14 min -- see public transportation). From there, follow the arrow to "Universität" through the park and you will end up on a broad walkway rising up steps through the center of the campus. There is a reception (Information office, 🛈) on level H inside building 23 on the right-hand side. The Institute of Neuroinformatics is in building (Bau) 55 (also called Y55) on the left hand side of the campus. Entering building 55 across the courtyard on level G, the entrance to our institute is to the left of the stairs just opposite after you enter the building. (If you come up the stairs from level F, you need to turn right at the top of the stairs.)

Take the lift up to level F where you will emerge at the point marked on the map with the double arrows, ⇵.
