Location and hotels

The venue for the Interplanetary CubeSat Workshop changes each year. The 2021 workshop is being held on or near the campus of Tsinghua University in Beijing, China and/or online (depending on the state of the global pandemic)


We recommend that you arrive by public transport (metro is easiest, train or bus are also options). The nearest metro station to the Tsinghua South Gate is Wudaokou (Line 13). Full directions and map to the workshop venue will posted here closer to the workshop.


Sites such as expedia.co.uk and lastminute.com often have discounted deals for nearby hotels. Inexpensive backpacker style accommodation can be found at places such as Hosteling International. For the more adventurous, accommodation in private homes of widely varying quality and price may be available via AirBnB.com

Getting to Beijing

Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK) is the main international airport for Beijing. The easiset way to get to Tsinghua from this airport is by metro – buy and top up a metro card at the airport and take the Airport Express to Dongzhimen station, change to Line 2 and travel to Xizhimen station, change to Line 13 and go to Wudaokou station from where the Tsinghua campus is a short walk. Hire cars are best avoided due to lack of parking. A taxi from an airport will be expensive.
