In order to get to Zurich main station, go to the railway station in the airport and take any train leaving in the direction of Zurich main station (Zürich Hauptbahnhof HB). The travel time to the main station is approximately 10 minutes. Before boarding the train, you have to purchase a ticket at one of the machines on the floor above the platforms. They are Touch-Screen machines and accept credit cards, should you not have the appropriate Swiss Franks available.
University of Zurich is very near to the main station. In order to get
there, just take the tram number 6 heading for the Zoo and get out
either at "ETH/Universitätsspital" (to get to the University) or
"Platte" (to get to the DBF). You can board the tram at the station
Bahnhofstrasse/HB south of the main station. For maps, please follow the
