Directions to the Welcome Service

If you are taking the tram line 3 to the university, you get off one stop before the university at the stop called “Bukowina-Institut/PCI”.

The tall, grey building behind the tram stop is the Büro-Center-Messe ("BCM") building and you simply have to take the elevator to the seventh floor.

The room 7005 will be towards your left when you are leaving the elevator.
