FU JEN CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY
Fu Jen Catholic University is a top private university in Xinzhuang, Taiwan. The university was founded in 1925 in Beijing as Fu Jen Academy, at the request of Pope Pius XI, and re-established in Taiwan in 1961 at the request of Pope John XXIII.
Getting to Fu Jen
Due to a very limited budget and the varied arrival schedule of conference presenters from abroad, to our regret, we are not able to arrange transport from and to Taoyuan International Airport.
International conference attendees will fly into Taoyuan International Airport. From there, they may travel to Fu Jen Catholic University and their hostel easily by MRT, bus or taxi.
One of the easiest ways to travel to and from the airport is by the Taoyuan Airport Metro. The fare is 160 NT ($5.50 U.S.), and you may buy single-journey tickets or put the journey on your MRT Easy Card (200 NT minimum), which can also be used for regular MRT journeys in Taipei. You may take the Airport MRT, get off at Sanchong 三重 (A2/O15) station, and directly transfer to the Orange Line (bound for Huilong 迴龍), then get off at Fu Jen University 輔大(O19), Exit 1. Please visit the Taipei Metro site for information. Additional details on the airport MRT are available here.
The city bus drops off passengers directly in front of Fu Jen Catholic University campus, which is located next to FJCU MRT station.
A taxi fare is based on the meter, but it will generally cost around 1200 NT from Taoyuan International Airport to FJCU campus when there is no traffic (a little over $40 U.S.). It is not customary to tip taxi drivers (or waiters, for that matter) in Taiwan, but many people will not ask for change if, for example, the fare were 1190 NT; 1200 would do.
* Or you may choose AirPoPo (From Taoyuan Taipei Airport to Taichung and Taipei, AirPoPo costs 1/3 the price of Taoyuan Airport taxi and takes shorter transportation time than Taipei Taoyuan Airport MRT.)
