Day one in Paris

At the airport

Students are advised to consult the Aéroports de Paris website to get all the necessary information on how to get to the city from the Orly or the Charles de Gaulle airport.

A taxi will cost about 70 EUR from Roissy/Charles de Gaulle Airport, including luggage and tip (still the fastest and easiest way to get to the hotel by taxi).

At the hotel

For security reasons, all the information regarding arrival is given out by the study abroad offices during pre-departure meetings (name, address phone and fax of the hotel where students spend their first night).  A packet containing housing assignment and other welcome information awaits students at the desk.

Upon arrival students go directly to the hotel.  Check-in time is 3 pm. Students who plan on arriving earlier may leave their luggage and start exploring the city.

EDUCO organizes an initial get-together and sightseeing tour of Paris for the whole group.

Orientation always starts on a Monday morning. Students should therefore plan to arrive in Paris on Sunday, before the beginning of orientation. Students who plan to arrive before the official arrival date will need to make their own initial lodging arrangements.
