Location - How to get here

After landing at Santiago Airport (SCL), also known as Nuevo Pudahuel or Arturo Merino Benítez Airport, there are two means of transport to get to the city center of Santiago: taxi or bus. 

Taxi

A taxi ride from Santiago Airport to the University Campus usually takes around 25 minutes, and the prices range from 12,000 CLP (€16, US$20) to 30,000 CLP (€40, US$50).

Bus

There are two 24/7 bus services connecting Santiago Airport to the city center: TurBus and Centropuerto. TurBus terminates at the Terminal de Buses Alameda (Metro Estación Central), passing by several metro and bus stations. It runs every 20 minutes from 05:00 to 00:00 and every 60 minutes overnight. The Centropuerto bus terminates at Los Héroes (it has a stop at Metro Estación Central) and runs every 10 minutes from 06:00 to 23:30. Its overnight service is every 30 minutes. 

The ticket fares are the same for both services. One-way tickets cost 1,900 CLP (€2.50, US$3) and round-trip tickets cost 3,400 CLP (€4.50, US$5). 

The main entrance of the University is located at the north sidewalk of Libertador Bernardo O’Higgins Avenue (also known as Alameda), at the opposite side of the Estación Central (Central Train Station) and just a few meters from the northern exit of Metro Estación Central. Once you enter the University Campus, head west and follow the main path. As you walk, you will find on your left side the Planetarium building and a six-floor research building. When the path ends, you will need to exit, cross a street and reenter the campus. You will find there the main library, after which, turning left you will reach the Physics Department buildings, which enclose a nice interior park. 

The University campus is open from Monday to Saturday from 06:00 to 22:00. 

The metro service in the city of Santiago starts at 06:00 from Monday to Friday, at 07:00 on Saturdays, and at 08:00 on Sundays and holidays. The service closes every day at 21:00.

Due to sanitary restrictions, the campus remains closed until further notice.
