Lecturers will be housed in the TRYP Sao Paulo Jesuino Arruda Hotel at the Itaim-Bibi neighborhood. The single-room reservations made by LASCON include free breakfast, wifi and parking. Extra expenses, e.g. minibar items, laundry, phone calls or meals other than breakfast, will be paid separately by each guest at check-out time.
All students who do not live in Sao Paulo will be lodged in the Namoa Hostel at Vila Madalena neighborhood. We have booked shared rooms (all-male or all-female) for these students from January 7 (check-in from 2pm) to February 3 (check-out before 12am). The reservation includes breakfast. Sheets and towels will be provided by the hostel and changed every five days. Rooms will be shared only among LASCON students.
LASCON will provide free transportation (by cars or vans) for lecturers/students between the hotel/hostel and the school venue at the University of Sao Paulo for the duration of the school, except on Sundays. Departure times from the hotel/hostel in the morning and from the university in the evening will be announced on January 7.
LASCON will not provide transportation for the students on the arrival (January 7) and departure (February 3) days from/to students entry/exit point in Sao Paulo to/from the hostel. This means that students will have to get to the hostel on the arrival day and to the airport/bus station on the departure day by themselves. The hostel is located a short walk away from the “Vila Madalena” subway (metro) station. Please check the Sao Paulo subway map to plan your journey.
