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. Due to a recent change in the policy of the hostel management, general block-booking is not possible anymore and each participant interested in a room at the hostel should contact the Hostel directly (but not more than two months in advance, i.e., not before March 30th) and give Nanie Perrin as contact person.
