How to get to Toulouse

By plane: Toulouse-Blagnac international airport features direct flights to 74 destinations mostly in Europe and Northern Africa with a few additional seasonal long-haul connections. Many domestic flights from main French cities also run daily.

From the airport to Toulouse downtown:

  • Tram: the tram line T2 connects Toulouse centre with the airport and back, running every 15 minutes. The tram connects with metro Line A at the stop ‘Arènes’ and metro Line B at the stop ‘Palais de Justice’.
  • Bus and coach: Shuttle buses to Toulouse city centre, run from the airport, outside Hall B, every 20 minutes. Faster than the journey bytram, it takes approximately 20 minutes to reach the city centre by bus, stopping at ‘Compans Caffarelli’ or ‘Jeanne d’Arc’ (both on Metro Line B), or ‘Jean Jaurès’ (Metro Lines A and B) or ‘Toulouse-Matabiau’ railway station.
  • By train: Toulouse can be reached by train from other French cities (Toulouse-Matabiau railway station).
  • By car: Toulouse can be reached by car using existing major highways (National road tax). Within the city, however, the parking is extremely limited and very expensive. The vet school has however a large car park where you can leave your car.


The vet school is located in a residential neighborhood with limited public transportation, especially in the evening.

Residome Occitania

We recommend the Residhome Occitania, particularly for its location in-between the city center [public transportation (tram (Lines T1 and T2) and metro (Line A)) are at 5 minutes- walking distance] and the vet school (direct access with bus n°46). It is also directly reachable from the airport using the tramway. The hotel is equipped with a swimming pool, which could be a great way to relax after a whole day of science! The weather in Toulouse is indeed usually very warm at the end of August.
