Traveling to RLSS:
Villeneuve d’Ascq lies in the suburbs of Lille, and it is very easily and quickly accessible by métro from the train stations located in the center of Lille.
Lille is very easy to access, either by road, fast train, or plane.
We sketch the simplest way to come to Lille from various places in the world. Many other ways are possible.
- The easiest way to come to Lille from America, Asia, Oceania, Africa, and non-neighbouring countries (i.e. countries others from Belgium, the Netherlands or Germany) is probably to fly to Paris Charles de Gaulle airport (CDG). CDG is connected to almost all countries worldwide. Once in CDG, you can catch a fast train (TGV) at the train station located in terminal 2 of CDG. 50 minutes later, you arrive in one of the 2 train stations of Lille (located a few hundred meters from each other)
- You may also fly to London, UK, and connect to Saint Pancras train station, board on the Eurostar (fast train between the UK and France), travel under the Channel and land in Lille train station
- From Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany, it may be even easier to take a Thalys fast train straight to Lille (from Amsterdam, Brussels, or Köln)
- From Brussels South Charleroi Airport there is a direct bus to Lille
