For LAN, the price of the 4-day package is :

  • 105 CHF for online payment (Postfinance/Twint/credit card)

A supplement of 5 CHF will be added for "Tournament" packs in order to participate in the cash prize.
A CHF 30 discount will be granted to all students on presentation of a valid student card.

The following packs will be available as options:

  • CHF 10 for "Le before"
  • CHF 5 for the PolyLAN 39 mouse pad
  • CHF 15 for the PolyLAN 39 Gamers T-shirt
  • 100 CHF for the purchase of an additional seat

To support PolyLAN financially, you can also add CHF 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 or 500 to your pack. It's important to remember that a LAN of this scale requires a lot of money, and a gesture on your part would help us to survive.


LAN takes place at Beaulieu in the center of Lausanne.
Full details on the access page

What you need to bring

  • Your setup (computer, monitor, mouse, keyboard, etc.)
  • Headphones (no speakers!)
  • Ethernet cable (RJ45) at least 10m long
  • Sleeping bag and mattress

Despite our excellent internet connection, we'd be grateful if you'd done your important updates before coming, as this can become problematic if everyone reinstalls their systems on arrival!

Your arrival at PolyLAN

If you're coming by car :

You can unload your equipment directly in front of the entrance by choosing the quick drop-off lane; staff will be on hand to inform you if necessary. However, in this case, parking time will be very limited, and you'll have to drop off your belongings along the side of the building and leave immediately.

If there are no more spaces available, you'll have to go straight to the Beaulieu parking lot to avoid blocking the main road.

When you reach the entrance, you'll have 3 choices:

1. Line-cut or quick drop-off access

If you've been to the before or have already checked in, you'll be given access to the entrance on the left.

2. GamerID check-in

If you've already checked in and still have your card, you'll enter through the right-hand door. There will be 2 lanes, so choose the one marked "With GamerID".

3. Check-in without GamerID

If you're new or have lost/forgotten your card, you'll also enter through the right-hand door, but in the second line marked "Without GamerID".

During LAN

Teams will be placed by us shortly before the LAN.

A whole host of activities will be organized, and a schedule will be available shortly before the LAN.

Those registered for the tournaments will play their matches first, and will only be able to take part in the other activities if they are eliminated.


You'll have free access to the Internet with a crazy connection (10 GBps in and out). The internal network is linked with a Cisco 1 Gbit connection for each player.

However, as the network is secure, you'll need to go through the check-in at reception before you can connect.

Instructions on how to log in can be found on this page.


Such an event requires a lot of power (>500,000 W), and resources are limited, so each person attending will be entitled to a maximum of 3 sockets.

Any device other than a computer or console is forbidden (coffee makers, stoves, fridges, etc.).


Our bar will be open continuously throughout the event. You'll find our usual hot dogs and croque-monsieur, as well as sweet and savoury crêpes.

This year we'll also be selling Dr Gabs beer. In compliance with the law, only people over 16 years of age will be allowed to buy it, and the bar will not sell it between 2am and 12pm.

Our partnership with MacDonald's in Saint-Laurent grants you a free donut for every Medium menu ordered on Order&Pay! Simply present your GamerID at the counter to benefit from this offer.
And if you prefer to be delivered by this restaurant, there will be no extra charges on Just Eat for the duration of our event!

Rest & Shower

A nearby room will be available exclusively for resting. Don't forget to bring your own sleeping equipment, as we only supply the floor and roof.

As the size of the sleeping area is limited, we strongly advise you not to bring mattresses wider than 1.20m per person.

Access is via the escalators in the entrance hatch, next to the reception area.

You can also access the showers via this same entrance. Please respect the silence of the rest area as you pass by.

Only players who have checked in will be allowed access.

Parking and access

For long-term parking, the Beaulieu public parking lot will be available, subject to availability. When you arrive, you can park directly there and pick up a ticket. If you wish to take advantage of a reduced rate, you will need to contact reception to obtain another ticket, which will replace the first.

If you bought tickets when you registered, you can also pick them up at reception after parking.

These reduced-price tickets are for a single exit and a single day.

In case of need, there's also a P+R (velodrome) parking area easily accessible by bus.

Health & safety

Access to the LAN is restricted: entry to and exit from the building will be controlled.

However, as you never know what might happen, ask someone to look after your equipment when you're away.

Samaritans will be on hand throughout the event to deal with any health problems, so don't hesitate to ask them if you're feeling unwell.

Smoking is strictly forbidden inside the event.

Glass bottles are not allowed in the hall.

Flower Protocol

Any case of harassment will not be tolerated and may lead to expulsion from the event by decision of the organizers, without refund.

We want the atmosphere to be pleasant and welcoming for everyone. To this end, we are introducing the "flower" protocol this year.

If you don't feel safe, if you feel oppressed or if someone makes you feel uncomfortable, if you wish, you can come and talk to the committee. We'll be there to listen and, if need be, to crack down if requested and appropriate.

Committees ready to hear from you will have a flower in evidence, and you can start a discussion by asking for details of the "flower" animation, for example.
