Detailed information:

Reaching the Gdansk University of Technology campus

The GUT campus can be reached by a taxi, a tram or a city train.

Taxi
A taxi will take you directly in front of the Main Building if you give the driver a proper address: Narutowicza 11/12 and perhaps mention GUT ("Politechnika" in Polish) and the building you want to reach ("Wydzial Elektroniki" in Polish).
Important: Remember to demand the receipt from the driver!

Tram
To reach GUT you can also take a tram.  If that is your choice, you should take the line 6, 11 or 12 and get off at the stop "Politechnika". From that point the GUT Main Building is just 10 minutes walk along the Narutowicza, Bracka and Siedlicka street - see the map below (click on it for a larger, more printer-friendly version).

The price of the ticket varies depending on the time of the tram ride: 1.20 PLN for 10 minutes and 2.40 PLN for 30 minutes. Tram drivers sell packs of three 1.20 PLN tickets for 3.90 PLN, but you can also purchase individual tickets at most of the newstands in Gdansk. Passengers should punch their tickets immediately after boarding a tram. Trams usually go every 10 to 15 minutes.

City train
A special city train called SKM connects Gdańsk, Sopot and Gdynia. The train station "Politechnika" is the nearest one from GUT. 

Tickets should be purchased at the station of origin, the price depends on the distance to the destination station. Passengers should punch their tickets at the station, before boarding the train. SKM city trains go every 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the time of day.

How to find the Faculty Building and Auditorium #1

The map above as well as the map of GUT campus should help you locate the building with ease. Here are several pictures of the front of the building:

 

To reach Auditorium #1 just proceed onward after you enter the building through the main entrance. You will find it on your left in a matter of seconds.

How to get out of the Gdansk airport

The easiest way to get to the city from the airport is by a taxi.  The fare for a ride from the airport to the Gdansk University of Technology campus should be about 35 PLN (approx. 8 Euros). After 10 PM (22:00) you should expect to pay twice the amount. Only one taxi company has an official contract for handling passengers traveling from the airport, you can distinguish their taxis by the designation 9886 clearly put on top of the car. By using their services you keep the risk of being cheated to a minimum.
