Here are a few options for your accomodation. As Campus Griebnitzsee is located right between Berlin and Potsdam, and convenient to reach via local train from both cities, you can live here or there! Being patriotic, though, we mention just a few Potsdam hotels below. Notice that during COMMA time there is a large fair going on in Berlin, so it is advisable to book hotel rooms early (also in Potsdam). Those marked with a (*) have special pricing arrangements with us; please mention "Universität Potsdam" when making your reservation.

Potsdam is a city located within the broader Berlin/Brandenburg Metropolitan Region. Therefore, the best option for the majority of attendants will be to travel to Berlin and then use one of the several local transportation options to reach Potsdam.
The area is serviced by two airports: Tegel (TXL) and Schönefeld (SXF). The common website for both is berlin-airport.de. As an alternative to flying, the main train station in Berlin (Berlin Hbf) has connections with several major cities in Germany and Europe; you can plan your route and buy tickets at the Deutsche Bahn website.
