You need to buy a ticket (best idea is a day pass) at the bus station. For further information which ticket you need to buy keep reading.

Travelling to our campus might be a little bit confusing when it comes to choosing the right ticket. The explanation is actually quite easy. You can reach by using two means of transport: train and bus.
The bus stops next to the campus (but also further away from the city) for this reason the normal city ticket (zone 101) isn’t enough. You need to buy an additional zone: 201.
But the train still stops in city zone from where you need to walk 5 minutes towards HSLU.
