How to join us?

Laboratory FAST is in the Scientific Campus of the University Paris-Sud, in Orsay, 25 km south of Paris.

Careful: From June 27, 2016, and during the works for the new building (end of 2018), the laboratory is located on two sites:

  • Offices: 23-25 rue Jean Rostand, on the Parc-Club d'Orsay.
  • Experiment Building : Bâtiment 502, rue André Rivière.

By Subway

One can go to the FAST by the train RER B (Réseau Express Régional). It takes about 40 minutes to come from the center of Paris (Gare du Nord, Chatelet, Cité, Luxembourg, Port-Royal, Denfert-Rochereau, Cité Universitaire stations...) Choose a train which stops at "Le Guichet" or at "Orsay Ville".

  • Preferred: From station "Orsay-Ville": Take bus 7, stop at "De Broglie"
  • From station "Le Guichet": Take the bus 9, stop at "Université Paris-Saclay", 5-10 min walking. You can also walk directly from the RER station to the lab: follow Rue de la Colline, and le Chemin du Bois des Rames (steep incline; about 20-25 min walking).
  • From station "Massy-Palaiseau": Take the bus 91-06B or 91-06C or 91-10, stop at "Université Paris Saclay", 5-10 min walking.

By car

Coming from Paris, two ways are available:

  • By the A10 Motorway (entrance at "Porte d'Orléans" or "Porte d'Italie", on the "périphérique"). Follow direction "Bordeaux", until the exit "Cite Scientifique". Then follow the "Saclay" direction, and "Orsay / Centre Universitaire" and "Parc-Club".
  • Starting from the "Pont de Sèvres" by the "N118" road, follow the direction "Chartres-Orléans". Take the exit "Centre Universitaire" (just after the exit "Saclay") and at the traffic circle, follow the direction "faculté des Sciences" and "Parc-Club".

From the airport

There are two international airports in the area of Paris: Orly (south of Paris) and Roissy - Charles de Gaulle (north of Paris).

  • From the Orly airport (south of Paris), take the OrlyVal train until the Antony station where there is the RER B (about half an hour).
  • From the Roissy - Charles de Gaulle airport (north of Paris), take the RER B, until "Le Guichet" station (about 1:30).
