There is a CERN shuttle that runs about every hour (Mon-Fri, 8:00--19:00). You can find its schedule and pickup/dropoff locations at this link. They might ask you to show your CERN card when you get on the shuttle. Otherwise you can use public transportation (see tpg.ch. Enter 'Aeroport' as your origin, and 'CERN' as your destination. You can either take the Y line (direct, does not run very frequently), or get a bus to reach 'Blandonnet' where you can get on the tram 18 going to CERN. Starting from 1 January 2008, the GVA airport offers every passenger arriving in Geneva a free bus ticket: get your ticket at the machine in the baggage reclaim hall. If you have a lot of luggage, you might want to try and arrange for someone to pick you up at the GVA arrival area.

Registration etc.

The usual steps are:

The US ATLAS website also has a very useful page describing the registration process.


The UCI office

The UCI office is in 104/R-C29 (Bld.104, "R" floor, room C29): at the entrance follow the corridor on the right, second door on your left. Follow the anteater.

Computers

In the office there are some screens and a server: There are also network plugs for latops and the CERN wireless. You need to register your laptop here. The nearest printer is 104-RC12-MCANON (by the coffee machine). You can configure it on your laptop, or print from lxplus lpr -P 104-RC12-MCANON. You can find a list of printers at the printservice. todo Add info about server accounts

Telephones

The phone number in the office is +41-22-76-71999 (71999 from any CERN phone). From this phone you can reach:

  • any other CERN phone (type phone person_I_want_to_reach on lxplus to find someone's phone number)
  • the Geneva local area (0-022-xxx xxxx)
  • the French local area (10-04-50 xx xx xx).

You might want to get a swiss mobile. They sell them at the post office.

Fax

Anyone still using it, really? you can get a fax number from your account management page MyAccounts -> Services. Then you can send/receive faxes from your email.


Quick practical stuff

Money

  • Cash: there are ATMs at CERN (restaurant 1, next to UBS, get CHF) and in Saint Genis-Pouilly (get EUR). If you have a Bank of America account you can get cash from BNP in Saint Genis (see its location on the map); this bank is associated with Bank of America, and allows you to withdraw cash without any extra fee.
  • Using your credit/debit card: you might want to check here the eventual fee you'll pay for your transactions
  • ...

Housing

  • At the CERN housing website you can find information about the CERN hostel, as well as a list of hotels in the area.
  • You might want to check the CERN market for sublets
  • todo add here info about the mini-apart
