How do I get to the city center and to the campus?
If you arrive by plane, the cheapest way to get to the city is the S-Bahn (S7) or train (RJ). The fastest way would be the CAT train, but it is more expensive. You can find information about transportation to and from the airport here. From the station Wien Mitte you can take the metro/tram/bus to your accommodation. If you want to come to the campus directly, get off at Geiselbergstraße and take the tram (11) to Schrankenberggasse.
If you arrive by train, you best get off at Hauptbahnhof (main station) as it is close to the campus and you have a huge variety of connections. From there you can take the metro/tram/bus to your accommodation or the tram (D) to the campus.
