General plan:
The Campus of Orsay is separated in two: the “historic” campus that we call the “Vallée” (where you can reach the RER B by foot) and the new and modern campus that we call the “Plateau” (where is located the C2N laboratory, the restaurants and your residence).
Your classes will take place in one single location: the C2N laboratory

– Option 1: Bus line 91.06 B, bus 91.06 C, bus 91.10. From the bus stop “Université Paris-Saclay” (close to the residence) to the bus stop “Corbeville”
– Option 2: Bus line 7. From the bus stop “Lieu de vie” (just opposite the residence) to the bus stop “Plateau de Moulon – Corbeville”, and then 10 minutes walk to get to the C2N.
