Please see the FAQ for more information on how to reach the location.


By Subway: BICOCCA station of the M5 line is the closest to the campus: 5' walk far from Piazza della Scienza (the conference venue) and the Department of Mathematics.
For further information on the public transit network in Milan check on ATM website.

By Train: GRECO-PIRELLI train station is next to the campus, almost in front of Piazza della Scienza (the conference venue) and the Department of Mathematics.
The ticket for the urban public transport is still valid inside the urban rail network (Mi1-Mi3 zone).

  • From Porta Garibaldi station, which is also a metro stop of the M5 line, suburban and local trains reaching Greco-Pirelli in 6' leave every 10-15 minutes.
  • From Centrale station the easiest way to get to the campus is by subway: take M3 line to Zara station, then change to M5 line.
  • Suburban and local trains to Greco-Pirelli also depart from Lambrate station, Forlanini station and Rogoredo station.
For the train schedule and further information check on Trenord website.

By Airplane: if you land at Malpensa Airport, the Malpensa Express train connects both terminals with Porta Garibaldi station and Centrale station - check the schedule here. Several bus services connect Linate Airport and Orio al Serio Airport with the city centre (with Centrale station as final destination).

Here you find the list (to be updated) of hotels near the University:

The above suggested options of accommodation are all (more or less) within walking distance from the University. However, there are many other possibilities closer to the city centre, considering that Bicocca is well-connected by public transport.
