The EPFL is located in Ecublens near Lausanne (Switzerland).
From one of the Swiss international airports (Geneva, Zurich, or Basel), the most convenient way to reach the EPFL is to take a train from the railway station located at the airport. You also you may rent a car (quite expensive) or take a taxi (outrageously expensive for such distances). You should definitively consider using public transportation.
