Travel information

  Here you can find the schedules if you come by train. Please mind that for most trains between Paris and Nancy
  and between Nancy and Strasbourg (those called "TEOZ") one has to buy train ticket and place reservation at the
  same time.

  Here is a Plan of Nancy and Vandoeuvre. The campus of the university Nancy I is located in Vandoeuvre. From the
  center of Nancy (railway station) you can reach it by taking the tramway T1 in direction "Vandoeuvre CHU" (it is
  useful to buy a ticket that is valid 48 hours; one can get it at the "Stan"-office near the railway station); get off at
  the station "Callot" (one after "Vandoeuvre velodrome"); then take the first street on the right ("rue Callot") and
  follow it up to the campus (written in big letters "Universite Henri Poincaré - Faculté des Sciences et Techniques").
  The Institut Elie Cartan is a remarkable modern building which is just behind the parking place, seen from the
  entry of the campus. You will find signs how to go the Seminar Sophus Lie.

  Other travel information can be found here.
