Scenario for a trip from the Warsaw airport to Toruń.
In Warsaw. Get on a train (SKM - Szybka Kolej Miejska = Fast Urban Railway) connecting the Warsaw Chopin Airport with the West Railway Station 'Warszawa Zachodnia'. Check train-lotnisko for a detailed information. Tickets can be bought at 'kiosk' (newspaper shop) or in the SKM automaton. One has to be aware that the SKM ticket automaton may be signed as ZTM. Moreover, it can be hard to spot a timetable or a ticket automaton - you shall find them at the entrance to platforms. Do not forget to validate an SKM ticket in the train.
From Warsaw to Toruń. Get on a direct train connection from the station 'Warszawa Zachodnia' to the station 'Toruń Główny' (marked as C on the map below). Check here for timetables.
In Toruń. The final part of your journey can be travelled by a city bus MZK Toruń. One simply hops on either the line 22 or 27 nearby the railway/bus station and hops off on the bus stop 'Plac Rapackiego'. Now you are in the city center close to the Faculty (A) and your accomodation place. Check here or here for timetables. The tickets for buses can be bought onboard (at the driver or in an automaton), via your smartphone or at one of the small newspaper shops called 'kiosk'. The standard ticket price (fare) in Toruń is 2.80 PLN. If not the luggage, you could even walk from the station (C or D) to the city center and the accommodation place.

2. If you plan to buy a ticket in an automaton or at the driver/ticket controller (train, bus, station), please get ready an exact change (coins). Often you can change a banknote at 'kiosk' (newspaper shop). Do not forget to validate/stamp the ticket. You buy a ticket at the driver/controller for an extra fee.
