The easiest way to come to Lisbon is by airplane. The Lisbon Portela Airport connects Lisbon to more than 100 destinations. The airport is 7km away from the city center. You can take the metro (every day from 6.30am until 1.00am) to the city center, which will only take approximately 30 minutes and will cost 1.90€. You can also take the airport shuttle that connects the airport to the city center (every day from 7.00am until 23.20pm), which will cost 3.50€. Alternatively, you can also take a taxi or Uber which will cost approximately 10€, or rent a car at the airport (all prices are reference prices). Prices are subject to change without notice and may vary from time to time). Find out more here.


You can travel overnight by train. There are trains connecting Madrid (Lusitânia Comboio Hotel), Vigo (Celta train) and Irun (Sud Expresso) to Lisbon.

Travel to the campus from Lisbon

You can easily reach the campus by train or by car if you are staying in the city center of Lisbon. The CP train leaves from the station “Cais do Sodré” to either the “Oeiras” or the “Carcavelos” train station and takes approximately 35 minutes. From the Oeiras train station, it is a 20-minute walk to the campus. It is a 25-minute walk or 5-minute ride with the MobiCascais shuttle from the train station in Oeiras.

A taxi or Uber ride from the city center to the campus takes approximately 25 minutes and will cost between 20€-25€. If you arrive by car, you can use the campus parking or park in the campus’ surrounding areas.
