How to reach KEDGE BS?

Students have to take subway M2 (red one, direction Sainte Marguerite-Dromel) and get off at the “Rond-Point-du-Prado” station, then take the boulevard Michelet exit (the one to the left) and cross the road to reach the bus stop for bus B1 or 21 JETBUS to Campus de Luminy, both leading directly to KEDGE Business School (stop: Luminy KEDGE BS).

Another option is to take the subway M2 to Sainte-Marguerite Dromel station, and then take the bus 24 to stop Luminy KEDGE BS.

Buses will take you to the Luminy KEDGE BS stop and you will have to walk 5 minutes to reach the school up a rocky path.

CHECKING INTO YOUR HOUSING

Once your housing is booked, make sure to set an appointment before your departure with your future landowner or residence. Prepare all the requested documents to get your keys.
In case you miss the check-in appointment time (due to a delay in your flight), please inform your residence or landowner as soon as possible. 
In case you arrive late and that the residence is closed, always have with you the phone number of a hotel.
