Leave Lausanne railway station by the main door and cross the square in front of the station to take the M2 metro line (the metro station is to the right of McDonald’s). At the ticket machine, select a “2 zones” ticket. Visitors staying in a hotel in the city of Lausanne will be given a pass for the city’s public transport network for the duration of their stay and therefore do not need to buy a ticket. This also applies for the trip from Lausanne station to your hotel (show your ID and your hotel reservation in case of ticket inspection).
Take the metro towards "Croisettes" or "La Sallaz". Get off at the first stop, called "Lausanne Flon". Then take metro M1 (towards "Renens gare") and get off around 10 minutes later at "UNIL Chamberonne".
Walk in the same direction as the metro when you get off. Once you have crossed the tracks, walk across the small car park and down the road at the end of the car park. The road turns sharply right and then passes a bridge. Cross the bridge and take the first road on the left. The Château is the manor house on your left, a few steps further on. The International Relations Office is on the ground floor, on your right.
The main campus of the University of Lausanne (Dorigny campus) is to the west of the city of Lausanne. The Château de Dorigny is on the Dorigny campus (coordinates of the parking "Grange": 46.524628, 6.582044).
To get to the University of Lausanne, take the motorway towards “Lausanne-sud” and then take the “UNIL, EPFL” exit. Stay in the right-hand lane and take the sharp right turn just before the roundabout. After the roundabout, go straight on (the road goes round a large car park). You will cross the metro tracks. Just after the level crossing, you will see some traffic lights: take the left-turn filter. You will cross the metro tracks again. Just after the level crossing, turn left again. Follow the road, the parking lot is on your left. Please park in the white area and note that you will need coins to pay the parking fee.
To reach the Château de Dorigny, walk to the end of the parking lot, and cross the road to take the road just opposite. The Château de Dorigny is the manor house with gray shutters you will see on your left a few steps further on. The International Relations Office is on the ground floor, on your right.
