The metro is not in service at 2am. Upon landing, you may take airport bus line 1 to Chunxi Road, then hire a cab to Luomasi Station. The cab ride takes about 20 minutes.

From Tianfu Airport, you may take metro line 18 to South Railway Station, change to line 1 to Renmin North Road, and then line 6 to Xingye North Street, which is about 1.2km from the campus. There is no bus to cover the last 1.2km, so you need to hail a cab.
