REACHING THE CAMPUS FROM MILANO-MALPENSA AIRPORT
Take the Malpensa Express train that leaves Terminal 1 every 30 min. The trip lasts about 35-40 minutes and the tickets can be bought at the ticket office of Malpensa railway station.

The venue of the Kick-Off meeting is on your left (see the map).
Taking a taxi from Malpensa Airport will not help you saving time (except in the late evening hours) and could be quite expensive.

Then, catch the underground (red line − MM1) for “Rho Fiera” or “Bisceglie” and get off at Cadorna station. In the daytime, trains leave Cadorna station every 5-10 min. Please check whether the train stops at Bovisa station or not. The trip will last about 50 minutes
A taxi fare will take from 45 to 60 minutes, depending on road traffic.
