Participants have to take care of accommodation themselves. A
list of suggested hotels in the area is provided on the CERN housing service webpage. Special rates are usually applied for CERN visitors.
Notice that the main CERN entrance is in Switzerland, while some of the suggested hotels are located in France. Public transportation from locations in Geneva, Meyrin or Cointrin is efficient, but not from hotels located on the french side.
On general grounds we recommend hotels in downtown Geneva (unless you have a car). A convenient area to connect with public transportation to CERN is the Cornavin train station, which is also close to the city center.
There is the possibility to get rooms at the CERN hostel. These are very nice and convenient, and therefore highly demanded. For this reason, we have prebooked a limited number of single and double rooms for the school. To book one of these rooms, the participants can contact directly the CERN hostel. In your request, please clearly mention the keyword "Winter School Conference", and quote Jeanne Rostant as contact person at CERN.
Please note that CERN and the hostel will be closed between December 19th and January 3rd, so no contact with the hostel is possible during this period.
