Directions for travel
Reid Hall is close to the Vavin métro station, which is on line 4 (purple).
If you are coming from the Gare du Nord to Reid Hall, take the direction of Porte d’Orléans. It takes about half an hour to get to Reid Hall with no changes. When you arrive at Vavin follow the exit for Bd Raspail. You will exit the métro adjacent to La Rotonde (a famous café). Cross over the road towards the sandwich bar. Go straight on along Bd du Montparnasse past the flower shop, Hippopotamus Restaurant and Tschann bookshop. You will see a restaurant called 'Chez Fernand' on the corner of Rue de Chevreuse. Turn left here and Reid Hall is half way down on the left hand side. It is only 5 minutes walk from the métro station.
To avoid central Paris:
Join the Périphérique at Porte de Bagnolet then stay on the Périphérique to Porte d’Italie and exit here. Take the Avenue d’Iltalie to the roundabout at Place d’Italie. Travel down the Gobelins, up Port Royal and straight on to the Bd du Montparnasse, then in to the underground car park just outside Reid Hall.
