Geographical location

If you come by train through the  Matabiau train station or coach station,  the bus / tube will take you to the   Capitole. It is the second stop after the SNCF station, direction Basso Cambo. There are two tube lines in Toulouse. You can buy tube tickets at the entrance of the tube station, a single tube ticket costs 1.60€ .

If you come by car, take the western ring road, exit Ponts Jumeaux-Amidonniers  (n°30). But parking is a real headache in the city centre. Access to the university car park is restricted to the university and teaching staff.  There is a private underground car park (Parking Arnaud Bernard), a 5- minute walk from university.

If you come by plane, you will fly over the city centre before landing. If you are lucky, you will realize why Toulouse has been called the pink city. At the airport, shuttles will transfer you to the city centre. The nearest bus stop is Compans Caffarelli. Young people can enjoy reduced transfer tickets (about 3 € from airport to city centre).

In any case, if you are overloaded with luggage, you may take a taxi. Ask the driver to drop you rue des Puits Creusés, in front of the car park entrance of Toulouse 1 Capitole University.

Last of all, since 2007, Toulouse has developed automatic bicycle hire sites VélôToulouse for you to enjoy cycling as you like while staying in Toulouse.
